We kick off Season 3 with two giants of 19th-century science fiction: Jules Verne and Albert Robida. Both French authors, Verne and Robida crafted futuristic novels set in the 20th century, predicting changes in technology and society. Join me in this trip to the past, which at times feels amazingly reminiscent of the digital world we live in today.
On Monday, the podcast returns for Season 3! I have quite a line-up planned, with plenty of variety, so stay tuned for that.
As a sneak peek – Monday’s episode features two French authors: Jules Verne and Albert Robida. Both authors wrote futuristic, coming-of-age novels set in the 20th century. I’ll talk about their predictions in the episode, but for now, check out these illustrations by Robida:
