Episode 18

Check out our interview with Cadwell Turnbull! In movies, shows, and books, the aliens often invade the biggest, most iconic cities in our world. But what if the aliens chose to inhabit a place like the US Virgin Islands?

In this episode, Benjamin Rosenbaum and I interview Cadwell Turnbull on his sci-fi book, The Lesson, and what its representations of aliens, violence, language, and culture says about our own troubled history with colonialism. (Cadwell is also the author of the newly-released No Gods, No Monsters.)

I really LOVED The Lesson — beautifully written, thought-provoking, and I recommend it to you highly.
