Citizenship: Wakanda

When you see me you would know that you saw me
Because she always got on her game and her good shoes...

The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.

~Eden Phillpotts, “A Shadow Passes.”

A listener shared this quote (commonly misattributed to W. B. Yeats) inspired by our show with social psychologist Ellen Langer.

I know that my attachment to science fiction literature has shaped my worldview in a major way. Science fiction literature invites us to contemplate what I believe are 2 of the most important words in combination, in language: What. If.
It is in the exploration of that question - what if- that all things in this realm become possible. That’s what science fiction literature has brought into my life. I cut my teeth on Asimov, Bradbury, Heinlein, and I simply love the genre. As an adult, my favorite science fiction author has become Octavia Butler. If you haven’t read her yet, RUN and pick up her books. Also, there’s a series of anthologies that come out once a year of science fiction shorts, they’re called The Year’s Best Science Fiction series. There are some thirty or more of them, all compiled and edited by Gardner Dozois. I love these, they are staples for my bedtime reading. They are amazing, they really are amazing.
