Stories from Among the Stars is an anthology series that shares thrilling science fiction audio stories–but only for a limited time.
Our first season was Steal the Stars, about forbidden love, a crashed UFO, and an alien heist.
This season, we’re sharing The Three-Body Problem by Cixin Liu. Hear the story of the human race as it stands poised to defend Earth from an alien invasion.
Set against the backdrop of China’s Cultural Revolution, The Three-Body Problem shows politicized factions forming as some humans prepare for war while others embrace the changes the invasion will bring. Listen or download by September 10, 2021 to hear the whole thrilling story.
When Howard Rheingold was on our podcast last year, he offered a holistic view of how history weaves technology, the human mind, and society together. Given all that is happening with the coronavirus and the state of daily life right now, we decided to invite Howard back onto the podcast to ask him for his perspective on this moment in history.
Seeing as Howard was the one to coin the term “virtual community” many years ago, we asked him for his thoughts on the current profusion of online learning and online communities. He shares his predictions for how our world might change for the long-term—from conferences to learning to human cooperation—even after this virus is long gone. Enjoy hearing from this man who is a champion of hope, community, and the belief that we’re all in this together.
