In 2017, political narratives have taken hold that aren’t based in reality. Can great fiction like Wonder Woman, Star Trek and Harry Potter show us how to change them?
Jo Miles and Amanda Kloer, the founders of FutureShift, believe that they can. Science fiction writers like Octavia Butler are masters at imagining alternate worlds. Similarly, changemakers in the real world need coherent vision to inspire people — and narratives that connects with them in a powerful way. Jo and Amanda join the podcast to discuss the connection between speculative fiction and social change, and explain why “you can’t be what you can’t imagine.”
