Into the future with dystopian fiction
Supported by Gather & Hunt :
So what are they on about? Author of The Chimes Anna Smaill and Mike Johnson, author of Stench and other works, have created future worlds where oppressive societal control and the illusion of a perfect society are maintained by totalitarian, technological or moral control. Such dystopias (the opposite of utopian societies) have at their heart a fundamental critique of some current trend, societal norm or political system.
Join Anna and Mike in lively conversation with National Radio’s Jim Mora as they reveal their inspiration for their dystopian societies and share their views on how close we might be to such an imagined future.
