In 2053 The Dawn of World Storm

46m | Feb 29, 2024

Meg is a wealthy businesswoman who seeks shelter in her luxury bunker. She watches in horror as her home and businesses are destroyed. Nabo is a young man addicted to virtual reality gaming who gets trapped in an abandoned gas station during the storm. Carlos is an astronaut who volunteers to search for survivors.

The storm causes widespread destruction - knocking down buildings, uprooting infrastructure, flooding neighborhoods, and killing many people. With power and internet knocked out, survivors struggle to get food, water, and medical aid. Meg, Nabo, Carlos and others try to find safety as the unrelenting storm rages on for days.

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 50 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.
