091: Review of Philip K Dick’s ELECTRIC DREAMS Review The Future

    • Podcasting

Crazy Diamond, the fourth episode of Amazon's anthology of Philip K Dick adaptations, is the subject of this week's episode. We discuss the primary technical supposition in the story, chimeric genetically engineered pig-people, and use that as a window to discuss human genetic engineering and enhancement more generally. We also discuss the elusive tone of Dick and how close this show gets to representing it.
