Episode 59: The Dispossessed

July 1, 2021

Would you live in an anarchist utopia if it also meant you had to live on a bleak desert moon with very little resources? This week we're discussing the sci-fi novel The Dispossessed, by Ursula K. Le Guin. It's about anarcho-syndicalism, imperialism, and physics! We also talk about gender, faster than light travel, climate change, and land otters. Christine really wants a land otter.
