The three jewels in the FarPoint Media crown are the â€œDragonpage Cover to Coverâ€ (C2C), â€œWinginâ€™It-3Dâ€ (WI-3D) and â€œSlice of SciFiâ€ (SoSF) programs.
C2C is the show that started it all.Â Each program hosts an award-winning author of fantasy, fiction and science fiction, covering the latest offerings from the writer being interviewed and the novel under discussion.
WI-3D is just want the name implies, an irreverent time where friends, celebrities and personalities get together in the studio in a no-holds-bar romp where the discussion can end up on just about anything.
SoSF is an hour-long show of news, entertainment and guest interviews centering on the world of science fiction, horror, fantasy and other genre-related topics.Â Very structured, SoSF works off of a tightly written script and has featured interview with actors such as Samuel K. Jackson and Amanda Tapping, producers/writers and directors like Peter Mohan, N. John Smith and Martin Wood.Â Also featured are young up-and-coming filmmakers like Mark Lund and Shane Felux, as well as, award winning authors like Peter S. Beagle, Tanya Huff and Jim Butcher.Â SoSF has made the unique crossover from a stand-alone podcast to where it can now also be heard on XM-Satellite Radio.
