There are some minor spoilers but nothing major. (It's from approximately 3:35 to 4:00) I also make a brief pitch to Nana Visitor and to Ira Steven Behr, as an aspiring writer.
I'm still busy writing the next four episodes of the Demona Chronicles: The Angel of Harlem.

In 1513, Niccolo Machiavelli has fallen from grace. Only a year prior, he had been one of the most powerful politicians in the Italian city-state of Florence. But Florence lost an important ally, and Machiavelli's enemies conquered the city.

In the year 1512, young French commander Gaston de Foix marches his army through northern Italy seeking to conquer it for France.

In this first chapter of the Demona Chronicles fan fiction podcast, we are taken to 16th century Italy: the dawn of the Renaissance. A Venentian senator sets out on a desperate mission to find a mysterious assassin, who can save Italy from foreign invaders.
In my second Demona Chronicles Podcast, I explain why I'm jumping into fan fiction, and I include a short excerpt from the first episode at the end. I also discuss Keith David and Goliath, and why as an aspiring writer, it's hard to write for characters that are noble.
