Feral Kids / The Red

The Content Clearinghouse

Sep 23 2021 • 1 hr 33 mins

Brett talks feral kids on this episode... probably not surprising but the reality of the "real-life Mowgli" did not have the happy life or Hollywood ending portrayed in Disney's The Jungle Book, content inspired by the feral child Dina Sanichar. Josh then gets into conspiracies, war profiteering, future tech and all the things that make sci-fi both awesome and terrifying. He's discussing (and highly recommending!) Linda Nagata's book trilogy: The Red.
