A request has been made to turn one of her Rivers of London stories into a fic podcast! I thought she'd had one or two other stories turned into podcasts, but apparently they were translated to Russian or some other language.


In other Rivers of London news, do you watch the Doctor Who spinoff, Class? Did you catch the third episode, Nightvisiting? My wife recognized the voice of Puddle's father, the actor Kobna Holdbrook-Smith, as the man who narrates the audiobooks for Rivers of London! He's also appeared in Father Brown, Midsomer, Doctor Strange, and in the upcoming Mary Poppins Returns.

Personally, I've been enjoying Class, I'm sad that it was cancelled after one season.

I was wondering what Roger had been up to since the end of the election. It had been rumored that Trump was planning a conservative news channel and that Ailes would head it up, but then Trump made the mistake of winning the election and look at where we are now. Well, it turns out that Ailes had hemophilia. Apparently in '12 he said that actuaries said he had 6-12 years left, I guess he didn't make the odds. Still, to make it to 77 with that condition is an achievement.

Aside from heading up Fox and exploiting his position of authority to sexually exploit women, he previously was the chief media advisor to Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George H.W. Bush. He also helped create the Merv Griffon Show and several other TV programs.

I can't say that I'm too sorry to see him gone. It would have been nice to see him have a reformation and make some amends for his past behavior, but it would be so totally out of character as to be all but an impossibility.
