Episode 108: Solarpunk Again; Utopia in the Making

Resist Dystopia! The show gripes about cyberpunk and revisits Solarpunk to explore the subculture in full. In the 2nd half we cover the narratives offered by a black social ecology, and dive into a Current Affairs essay linking the Satanic Panic, New Atheism. Toxic fandom, and Lazy art criticism using the problem of overly literal thinking. We can conclude its another form of neo-liberalism, but what matters is finding new ways using solar-punk life.
