I met first encounted John Anealio on The Functional Nerds podcast, which I encountered as a result of the SF Signal podcast. I found him engaging and all together worth listening to. It wasn’t for a while that I realized he was also the man behind the (in)famous rendition of “George R.R. Martin is Not Your Bitch“. He subsequently invited me to join him on the FN podcast. We began a sweet, and respectful, eFriendship.
Then, I had the pleasure of meeting him at Balticon this past May. Although he was chronically exhausted the entire con, we talked about a bunch of things, I watched him perform live, and we recorded another episode of the FN podcast along with one of my favorite science fiction authors, T.C. McCarthy.
But, despite my friendship with Anealio, I couldn’t be bothered to interview him. I had to wash my hair. So I asked my assistant Cheryl to have a chat with him about his new album, Laser Zombie Robot Love, and some.
