Ep. 80: What Future (W/ Torie Bosch & Roy Scranton)

In this very special episode, we're talking with Torie Bosch and Roy Scranton about their new anthology  What Future: The Year's Best Ideas To Reclaim, Reanimate, & Reinvent Our FutureThe anthology is a great compendium of some of the best writing over the past year, featuring articles by Kim Stanley Robinson, Malkia Cyril, Laurie Penny, and many others.

Just a bit about our guests themselves. Torie is the editor of Future Tense at Slate, which--duh--you should already be following. Roy is the author of War Porn as well Learning to Die in the Anthropocene.

We had a great conversation about what this weird concept means: The Future. Is there something inherently political about this concept? What functions do dystopian and utopian visions have? What do these effects do these diverging perspectives have?

Can't recommend the new anthology enough! You can learn more about it here: http://www.unnamedpress.com/books/book?title=What+Future+
