Direct Download: Dissecting Worlds Series 9 – Episode 6: Special Circumstances

Welcome to Dissecting World’s Lecture on the Communism – or is it an Anarchy? –  of Iain M Banks titanic sweeping space opera culture; The Culture, with focus on their spies ‘Special Circumstances’.

The Northern duo of Kehaar & Matt are joined by an incredibly knowledgeable David Haddock of the Banksoniain  fanzine and discuss:

* the blurred lines between Contact & Special Circumstances

* the post-scarcity nature of The Culture & how Star Trek avoids the questions

* Playing the long game and underestimating The Culture at your peril

* All that tech! Shiny!

* Plus Wiki-edit wars!

Please check out the Banksonian for more insights
