We talk about currency, empire, and colonialism in Seth Dickinson’s The Traitor Baru Cormorant. This is a novel all about economic conquest and effective resistance to empire with a seeming message that there is no effective resistance to empire.
We talk with Rick Harp, host of Media Indigena, about indigenous cultures, particularly those in the place now called Canada, the Hugo Awards, colonialism, The Walking Dead, and economic development of indigenous peoples the world over.
