Struck by Russ Ramsey, Free for CAPC Members
Death’s party-crashing ways are detailed in a new book by Russ Ramsey, titled Struck: One Christian’s Reflections on Encountering Death.
Pick your poison of near-future dystopias with this week’s episode: grim authoritarian government regime or sinister-but-smiling tech hegemony? Wade and Kevin take a look at the first three episodes of Bruce Miller’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s novel The Handmaid’s Tale. Does it do justice to the anxieties and complexities of its source material? The other dystopia is much sunnier but no less worrisome in its implications. James Ponsoldt’s film adaptation of the Dave Eggers novel takes a hard look at technology and social media’s impact on society, but is there more realism or more hysteria in its musings on these themes? Listen to find out!
