World Building in Fantasy, Interview with Beth Barany (Podcast)

From the archives: In August 2014, I was interviewed by Michelle Murrain on my views on world building in fantasy for the monthly Broad Universe podcasts.

We discussed the philosophy of world building for fantasy, examples of world building, discussions of settings for stories, and tips and tools for fantasy world-builders everywhere.
