On Tuesday 16 July, I traveled to Toronto and visited the offices of SiriusXM Canada as a guest of The Todd Shapiro Show, a talk radio show on SiriusXM Canada Channel 167.

Todd and I had a thirty minute discussion with subjects ranging from The War Beneath, our future in the oceans, Global Warming, Star Wars, writing, and how genre properties helped me as a teenager in high school.
