Stranger Than Fiction
There is a new 6 part podcast series in the works sponsored by Future Tense, which is a partnership of Slate, the New America Foundation, and Arizona State University on emerging technologies, public policy, and society. It’s called Stranger Than Fiction, and the host Tim Wu will be interviewing contemporary science fiction writers about whether we are living in the future. I personally am still trying to master the receding past. In the debut episode, Wu talks to Neal Stephenson, the author of the previously selected Beamer book Snow Crash. Margaret Atwood, Cory Doctorow, and other leading science fiction writers are also in the queue.
