S00E01. Binti

Before the Future Came

Sep 5 2023 • 1 hr 35 mins

Content Warnings: blood and injury; frank discussions of racism and xenophobia. We're not yet a Star Trek podcast! Instead, we open with Binti, written by Nnedi Okorafor. We discuss the tension between violence and empathy, the nature of magic and mysticism in science fiction, and how it feels to be ostracized by every inch of your skin and finding a path forward anyway. We'd love to hear what you think! You can hail us at onscreen@beforethefuture.space, contact us on social media, or comment on our website at beforethefuture.space. Works cited: Clarke, A. C.
