This month we read and discussed Karin Boye’s novel Kallocain, which was nominated for a Retro Hugo for 1941. This is an excellent, if bleak, book, which we think should be taught in US classrooms alongside 1984 and Brave New World. We scream a few times during minute 29, so mind your volume!
The full text of the novel is available to read free online, courtesy of the University of Wisconsin.
Digressions include a live tasting of the new space-flavored Coke.
Our DM for this episode is Amy.
