      A Hopeful Look At The Apocalypse: An interview with PRI’s Innovation Hub


      I chatted with Innovation Hub, distributed by PRI, about the role of science fiction and dystopia in helping to shape the future (MP3). Three Takeaways 1. Doctorow thinks that science-fiction can give people “ideas for what to do if the future turns out in different ways.” Like how William Gibson’s Neuromancer didn’t just predict the... more

      Reviving my Christmas daddy-daughter podcast, with Poesy!


      For nearly every year since my daughter Poesy was old enough to sing, we’ve recorded a Christmas podcast; but we missed it in 2016, due to the same factors that made the podcast itself dormant for a couple years — my crazy busy schedule.

      Talking Walkaway on the Barnes and Noble podcast


      I recorded this interview last summer at San Diego Comic-Con; glad to hear it finally live! Authors are, without exception, readers, and behind every book there is…another book, and another. In this episode of the podcast, we’re joined by two writers for conversations about the vital books and ideas that influence inform their own work.... more

      Talking Walkaway on the CNet book-club podcast


      CNet has started a new book-club podcast, and they honored me by picking my novel Walkaway as their second-ever title. We had a long and far-ranging discussion last week about the book and the themes it raises: disasters, economics, technological immortality, community, trolling, bohemianism, and much more (MP3). Since a big part of “Walkaway” concerns... more

      A Hopeful Look At The Apocalypse: interview with Innovation Hub


      I’m on the latest episode of Innovation Hub (MP3): Science-fiction is a genre that imagines the future. It doesn’t necessarily predict the future (after all, where are flying cars?), but it grapples with the technological and societal changes happening today to better understand our world and where it’s heading. So, what does it mean when... more

      Interview with Wired UK’s Upvote podcast


      Back in May, I stopped by Wired UK while on my British tour for my novel Walkaway to talk about the novel, surveillance, elections, and, of course, DRM. (MP3)
