Sometimes I feel like I missed the boat on all the cool stuff life has to offer. Or maybe it’s more accurate to say I’m behind the wave. Many colleges today offer courses in science fiction. Imagine that! Getting to discuss and learn about science fiction while earning college credit! That sure beats the lame electives from which I was forced to choose.
Professor Courtney Brown PhD of Georgia’s Emory University is offering a Political Science course entitled Science Fiction and Politics and he’s making the lectures available as a podcast. Available lectures ready for download include Foundation (parts 1 and 2), Foundation And Empire and Second Foundation by Isaac Asimov , Brave New World (parts 1 and 2) by Aldous Huxley (parts 1 and 2) and The Left Hand Of Darkness (part 1) by Ursula K. Le Guin.
