15.38: Depicting Religions That Are Not Your Own

Your Hosts: Piper, Dan, and Tempest, with special guest Nisi Shawl

Whether you’re writing about a real-world religion, or one you’ve created for your setting, there are numerous factors to be aware of. In this episode we discuss a few good and bad examples of depictions of religions, and the ways in which these examples can inform the way we approach our own projects.

Credits: this episode was recorded by Ross Smith, and mastered by Alex Jackson.

Homework: Choose an aspect of culture that ties into religion (dealing with death, for instance), and explore how specific religious beliefs have influenced that culture.

Thing of the week: New Suns: Original and Speculative Fiction by People of Color, edited by Nisi Shawl.
