Episode 7: This Perfect Day and our imperfect relationship with technology

The relationship between human beings and technology is ripe with dystopian undercurrents – so ripe that Toby and Meg talked to two guests instead of the usual one. Together, they ponder parallels between modern technology and This Perfect Day, a 1970 technocratic dystopian novel by Ira Levin. Also: Wardrobe advice from Alexa, emerging issues in civil liberties and a whopper of a News from Dystopia segment.

P.S. We’re still looking for suggestions from you (or your kids) about dystopian novels that appeal to teens and tweens. Send us an email or voice memo at radiofreedystopia@gmail.com.

      1. Coolio, his books were described as utopian but I felt dystopian was a better description of his work.
