It’s another episode from the vault! The Lizard People discuss Octavia Butler’s Xenogenesis saga (also known as the Lililth’s Brood series), consisting of Dawn, Adulthood Rites, and Imago.

Xenogenesis is a wild, weird tale about aliens, gender, and survival, sparking a lot of deep conversation by the Lizard People who are certainly still human and not at all reptilians from another planet. As always, the discussion is majorly spoilerific, so do try to read along before you listen to the podcast.

As a reminder, after next session’s Culture Club episode, the Lizard People will be covering Kim Stanley Robinson’s Aurora, so get ready by getting it read.

Check us out on twitter @DRLizardPeople, email us at and feel free to wake Peter up if he is sleeping, he won’t mind.

[Hey Listeners/Readers/Lizards, due to conflicts with some menacing lizard-people-underground-illuminati conferences, we present you an episode from THE VAULT (thunder, lightning).  Next episode will be a discussion of Octavia Butler's Xenogenesis, with Aurora following hot on its heels.]
In this Culture Club episode, we talk about our highlights from GenCon 2014, notably artful medieval-em-up card game Ortus Regni.  A good(?) time is had by all with collaborative storytelling games Carolina Death Crawl and Psi-Run, with a nod to Fiasco.
Peter has been playing Folklore, but doesn't really feel like talking about it.  Nathan and George debate Season 10,000,000 of Dr. Who, while a 90 year old man and a hair piece fight vampires in The Strain.  Nathan watches OUTLANDER, but Geroge doesn't know why.
We introduce segments wherein George trolls Nathan on Twitter and we spend a second listening to a picture of Peter's butt.  Finally, George gives advice on how to cut through the content clutter by following him and Nathan on (the now defunct!  You can safely ignore this part)
If listening to this episode causes any painful sores, hair loss, or loss of sleep, contact your doctor immediately.  Otherwise, email us at, or tweet @drlizardpeople.
