Solarpunk is both pragmatic and utopian. It has to incorporate the latter because that allows us to push the boundaries of what is considered possible. At the same time, being pragmatic is a way of bringing back the reader (or listener) to the present after temporarily escaping into a Solarpunk story. For example, a Solarpunk story set in Gaza in the year 2040 could imagine climate change-related challenges that the Palestinians there would be facing then, and imagine ways of solving them. This would be told in a story in a setting with its own specificity which differs from, say, a story set in Paris in that same year. A Solarpunk story set in Gaza 2040 would therefore have to respect the specific history of that city while also trying to imagine what it could look like free of colonialism, apartheid, patriarchy and other forms of oppression. In that world, are there still two nation-states (Israel and Egypt) restricting the freedom of movement of Palestinians in Gaza? What is the access to resources such as water like? Could permablitzing be one tool against societal atomization brought about by an oppressive state? What are the heatwaves like? Are they dealing with droughts? Is the Mediterranean a source of recreation and abundance, or an intimidating body of water rendered more dangerous by global warming? How are relations with their neighbors?
Fantastic long read on Solarpunk in New Lines Magazine from The Fire These Times podcast host Joey Ayoub

made this Dungeons & Daddies and Hello from the Magic Tavern crossover comic a couple of months ago! in which the four dads fall into the land of Foon like Arnie did instead of the Forgotten Realms, and bump into Foon's most notorious villains, the Baron and Dripfang!
a little bonus panel as well!

ok, The Adventure Zone will always be the podcast that started me getting into D&D/podcasts, I love Balance and I will never not cry listening to it, but my comfort podcast is Dungeons&Daddies.
Love them, I've listened to s1 probably 10+ times by now in a row, and I'm loving what they are doing with s2. I wish I'll be able to go back being their patron again soon.
They are amazing and talented hosts, DM Anthony cooks up some blasts with the story and cool homebrew mechanics, and it's an overall delight to listen to. True Daddy Magic.✨

The next guest on the Women of Noise podcast will be Chattanooga tape manipulator Slow Blink! I (@aleprouswitch) am from Chattanooga as well and we've played shows together. She approached me about being a guest and of course I said yes!
Her work is gorgeous and I encourage you to check it out before the interview, which will be recorded live Tuesday at 8 PM EST on our Discord channel! If you can't tune in for the recording, the interview will be posted to our SoundCloud sometime in early December.

I simply can’t find the words to describe how hard Star Wars hits emotionally after you’ve lost a parent. So much of Star Wars is about healing the relationship between a parent and a child, about growing up and realizing that your parents are just as flawed as you are, about parents overcoming their personal trauma and being able to express how they feel for their children in a way they’ve never been able to before. And it really wasn’t until I lost my dad in 2016 right before rogue one came out that I noticed that pervasive theme, before I had lost a parent I really didn’t understand how difficult it is to face.
And that’s why I started my podcast, why I have grown so attached to rogue one, why this film and now andor have become so important to me. I needed to be able to talk about it, to talk about grief and loss and my dad and all of his demons and flaws. And that catharsis in healing is what the Star Wars community has brought to me, and I couldn’t be more grateful

The convention scene, known by fans as the “Checklov’s Gun Convention” is notorious for every single weapon shown in the scene being used later on in the film. Most notably, The big sticky mess; a gun that shoots out GLUE FOAM
