Ep 106: What Future 2018 (Ft. Meehan Crist & Rose Eveleth)
We have today a very spooky show, chatting with Meehan Crist and Rose Eveleth, the editors of a new anthology about the finest future writing of the year. We sadly learned that the future is now, and that’s very bad because right now sucks. Rich weirdos want to put young blood in their bodies for some damn reason. Other rich weirdos want to steer the planet toward destruction because *checks notes* …the stock market? This great anthology has it all: why all organizing is science fiction, all about technology powered democracies, all about technology-powered nightmare governments, bringing woolly mammoths back to life, and even some good old-fashioned robots! It’s a great anthology. Check it out: http://www.unnamedpress.com/books/book?title=What+Future+2018
