It’s been a long winter, but the Lizard People are out of hibernation and back on their heating rocks (and more importantly, their mics).
It’s our first episode with a guest host! We’re joined by virtual reality talk show host Will Smith to discuss Aurora, by Kim Stanley Robinson.
What’s Aurora, you ask? Well, you should probably read the book before you listen to the episode, but it’s a touching tale of generation ships, systems ecology, island biodiversity, emergent AI, and what happens when you throw a bunch of people into a sealed tube for 140 years.
This is the kind of book that should be right up our metaphorical alleys, since most of us have a deep love of Kim Stanley Robinson’s Mars series and all of us are into spaceships.
Episode 00016’s book won the 2015 Hugo Award for best novel. It’s The Three-Body Problem, by Cixin Liu! Get excited!
