Escape Pod — EP116: Ej-Es
I often listen to Escape Pod as I’m working, but it goes in fits and starts depending on if I’m working on language based things or not. Lately, I’ve had a lot of work that doesn’t use the verbal part of my brain and the short fiction at Escape Pod is perfect. I’ve just finished listening to Escape Pod 116: “Ej-Es” by Nancy Kress. This is beautifully read by Sheri Mann Stewart and raises serious ethical questions. It explores human nature in a way that perfectly demonstrates why I read and write speculative fiction.
By standing on the stage of the possible, we can explore thorny ethical and moral dilemmas. Take some time and go listen to “Ej-Es.” I promise that it will make you think.
