Great guides to literature, ___-topias, SF and KSR

I'm so glad I found this. The two hosts are sharp, funny, insightful and really good at sharing the connections they make across literary fields. Sent me be back for a re-read.

Hauske & Strang have done it again

You know how sometimes a friend will come up to you and be all "hey can you recommend a podcast that's really smart and also really funny and also really Marxist and also about science fiction maybe KSR in particular?" And then you have to be all, "uh, yeah, that would be AWESOME, but that's not really a thing." WELL GUESS WHAT IT IS A THING. And it's this podcast. Best KSR-mentary you could ask for.

More please!

I hope you two continue with the rest of KSR’s work after the Mars Trilogy. I’m particularly interested in Matt’s take on NY 2140 and Hillary’s take on 2312. Also, more Margaret Thatcher references plz.
