A podcast about what we learn when facts and dystopian fiction start to look the same. Join dystopian novelist Toby Ball, journalist Meg Heckman and assorted guests as they talk about authoritarianism, free speech, environmental decay and what it means to commit acts of resistance. Also: Power, privilege, freedom and – perhaps most importantly of all – hope.
 
I realize that for most of us it is extremely traumatic to fully grasp just how wrong this world has become. And that it is therefore much easier mentally and far more comforting psychologically to blame it all on the 'Left' or the 'Right'. But this podcast gives an interesting, thorough, and dispassionate analysis of just how and why we got to here from there. Further, by using established, mainstream science, it then presents a clear, complete, non-ideological picture of human behavior and ...

BREAKERS is Shepherd Grey’s account of what life looks like after organized civilization crumbles as he and his faithful canine companion, Rommel, venture out from their home in Virginia to try and count themselves among the survivors. It has been several years since the outbreak began. The virus is just a sick and twisted part of life now. You test as much as you can, but there is no “preventing” it, only staying alive until you catch it. “Red you’re dead” is a phrase all too commonly heard ...

Originally serialized from 1898 to 1903, Wells later made some crucial changes to the piece to create a flawless dystopian science fiction novel published in 1910 and renamed The Sleeper Awakes. The novel focuses on an Englishman, who falls in a deep sleep lasting two centuries, and sees him wake up in an unrecognizable setting and extremely wealthy. An enthralling tale of dystopian society depicted through a colorful imagination, The Sleeper Awakes concentrates on topics including dystopia, ...
 
We’re living in pretopia, the final crossroads. Both utopia and dystopia are possible futures for humanity, but neither is inevitable. Technology will bring us there, but technologies are not inherently good or bad. Their value is determined by the humans who design and use them, and the decisions we make now as a species will set us on a path we may not be able to change. Pretopia.FM is an open platform for discussing the enormous opportunities and existential risks that come with living in ...

College students get drunk and cause trouble. A man in ...

Our unofficial Pride month continues with Danforth's lengthy, sprawling story of queers in Montana, which gets abbreviated in Akhavan's film, but we're ok with it? It's a good conversation about growing up gay in a small town (vs big city), why Coley's betrayal stings in more ways than one and whether Chloë Grace Moretz deserves blame for being a b…
 
The JFK assassination doesn't add up to what the Warren commission stated and there was lots of suspicious activity that possibly points to US deep state insiders who wanted JFK removed by any means. And if the intelligence agencies did in fact kill JFK, as I suspect they did, this truly goes to show the US isn't a democracy and no matter who gets …

We speak with comedian Josie Long (@josielong) about a recent article in the Atlantic about whether or not Boris Johnson is Britain’s Trump.

So, enjoy this episode where we’re in a good mental space.…
 
A US judge has ruled against 117 workers at Houston Methodist Hospital who sued their employer over a vaccine mandate.

In the second episode, I go over the utter fraud that is being perpetrated around the globe, this so-called "pandemic". This is NOT about the health and well-being of the masses, it is about stomping out all dissent, violating our fundamental human rights, and ushering in complete and total control over our lives. Even a military-enforced quarantin…
 
Feeding fairy tales to American citizens is the modus operandi of Washington D.C. The latest on the economic front is a real doozy.

'Sins of the Father' in SFF is a trope that is very popular without many people really knowing what it is. But who doesn't love a bloodline curse? Or a hero who fears they will not be able to live up to an illustrious (potentially evil or erring) forebear? Who doesn't find narrative satisfaction in a main character being punished for something an a…

A 100 day review of US policy toward China has determined - surprise! - that not only is China the top threat, but that the Pentagon needs to stop jawboning the threat and start acting on it...whatever that means.

Rep. Thomas Massie has called for the entire CDC top leadership to be fired over its "constant stream of lies" during the past year of coronavirus. That's a great idea. But after that, we need to take a hard look at why we have a CDC at all. Do we need a highly-politicized, centralized entity making pronouncements they pretend are laws binding us t…
 
In the premiere episode, I go over direct comparisons of story elements and quotes from George Orwell's 1984 and cite modern-day examples that we are witnessing in real time. Google IS Big Brother.

A new study on Covid lockdowns in Germany shows that destroying the freedom and livelihood of civilians to fight a virus by locking the country down was pointless.
