The Author - Emma NewmanThat Emma Newman is a busy bee, what with finishing three wonderful novels in the past year and umpteen short stories, all of which she has also recorded on audio, in addition to helping make folk’s dreams come true. Her next step on her road to World Domination is a special new podcast for the Geek Planet Online.

The Tea and Jeopardy podcast will whisk listeners away to Emma’s tea lair once a week where they can eavesdrop on a polite conversation with a guest and the serious business of tea and cake. Set in a different location every week and featuring topics such as writing, geekery, what beards are for and guilty pleasures, guests will then have to survive a perilous escape from the lair. Tea, conversation and mild peril; what podcasts were made for.

Episode 1 features the mighty beardmeister himself, Mr Chuck Wendig.

Episode 2 sees the brilliant Sarah Pinborough having to escape Emma’s clutches (after a nice spot of tea, of course, and a conversation about guilty pleasures).

Episode 3‘s guest is novelist/screenwriter/comic writer/audio writer writer Paul Cornell (and features the line: “We can’t squish Paul Cornell, what would fandom say?”
