Left to Die
Our sixth podcast for December is “Left to Die” written by Vandana Singh and read by Kate Baker.
Vandana Singh is a writer of speculative fiction and a professor of physics and environment at Framingham State University, a small public institution near Boston. Her critically acclaimed short stories have been reprinted in numerous best-of-year anthologies and her collection, Ambiguity Machines and Other Stories (Small Beer Press and Zubaan, 2018) was a finalist for the Philip K. Dick award. Her most recent work is a short collection of essays and stories, Utopias of the Third Kind (PM Press 2022). Vandana’s academic background is in particle physics, but for over a decade she has been working on a transdisciplinary, justice-centered re-conceptualization of the climate crisis, at the intersection of science, economics, sociology, philosophy, history, and futures studies.
