What do you get when two Outlander fans meet, a midwife and a doctor? You get Outlander Science Club. I already had planned to do a Voyager podcast read-along to pass the droughtlander time, but wanted a twist, something new to offer my audience. When Karen Daugherty and I met through Rocky Mountain Sassenachs, it was kismet. Lightning in a friendship bottle. During our first conversation we accidentally came up with OSC. With a pause and double take, quickly we decided the idea was a good one. The next step was to do the Voyager read-along with a side of Outlander Science Club.
That was that…and Outlander Science Club was born.
Voyager is the favorite book for many Outlander reader fans. It’s salve and redemption to Dragonfly In Amber. Karen and I are not different. We adore it. And both of us also have mutual love for Claire’s beautiful brain. Her ability to listen to the body as a healer, whether in the 20th century or the 18th century. Her ability to recall treatments for a variety of maladies. Her simply being who she is.
The first episode will air August 6, 2016 with chapter 1-3. Please read ahead of time to get the most out of the podcast. I will be covering the chapter material and the science lesson will be at the end of the podcast each week. We will cover the science point of view of both centuries. The final read-along episode will air December 17, 2016. This mean 20 weeks of Voyager love coming your way.
