Utopian Horizons

Interpreting Anime (Christopher Bolton)Christopher Bolton joins the podcast to talk about Ghost in the Shell (the 1995 anime one). We talk about artificial bodies, Haraway's Cyborg Manifesto, Japanese puppet theatre, networked cities and much more.

Utopian Horizons is a podcast about utopias, real and imaginary. Each episode covers a different utopia, dystopia, utopian thinker, or utopian movement, asking what they can tell us about ourselves, our society, and our future.
