Welcome to Stranger Than Fiction, a new six-episode podcast from Slate, the New America Foundation, and Arizona State University. Each week, Tim Wu—a Future Tense fellow at New America, the author of The Master Switch, and a professor at Columbia Law School—talks to a contemporary science fiction writer about whether we’re living in the future.
In the third episode, Wu talks to Margaret Atwood, author of science-flavored dystopian fiction like Oryx and Crake and The Year of the Flood. In 2012, she published In Other Worlds: SF and the Human Imagination, in which she explored science fiction as an author and as a reader.
Check back every Monday for the next three weeks for a new Stranger Than Fiction episode, as Tim Wu speaks to Kim Stanley Robinson, Alastair Reynolds, and Robert Sawyer.
Future Tense is a partnership of Slate, the New America Foundation, and Arizona State University.
