Beginning with praise, transitioning to criticism and ultimately reaching a state of forgiveness, the panel embarks upon its ongoing Dystopian Novel Series with the granddaddy of the dystopian novel, We by Yevgeny Zamyatin. (Coincidentally recorded on the podcast’s one year anniversary).

Completed in 1921 and published in 1924 (with an English translation), Zamyatin’s forging of the genre predates pretty much anything you might mistakenly argue came first. Harbor’s Metropolis or the the Fritz Lang film adaptation? Sorry. London’s The Iron Heel? Nope. Huxley’s A Brave New World? Come on, man! Trust us, we looked this shit up.

Today’s episode was brought to you by the Numbers PF-237, GK-42 and SZ-119 as well as the word “insidious” and several pronunciations of the word “integral”.
