In 2051 Gene Outlaws

39m | Nov 4, 2023

An addict of virtual reality has a one night stand. Now most everyone can afford a humanoid robot. A couple decide to break the law by seeking gene screening for their newborn. A war overseas has ended. Deep mines cause prices to plummet. New military complexes are being built. Why so many babies?!

Many of the characters in this project appear in future episodes. 

  Using storytelling to place you in a time period, this series takes you, year by year, into the future. From 2040 to 2195. If you like emerging tech, eco-tech, futurism, perma-culture, apocalyptic survival scenarios, and disruptive science, sit back and enjoy short stories that showcase my research into how the future may play out. 

This is Episode 44 of the podcast "In 20xx Scifi and Futurism." The companion site is where you can find a timeline of the future, descriptions of future development, and printed fiction.

These are works of fiction. Characters and groups are made-up and influenced by current events but not reporting facts about people or groups in the real world.
