CREATIVITY IN CRISIS with special guest Charlie Jane Anders | Feminist Frequency Radio 174

Anita and Ebony are joined on this episode of FFR by special guest Charlie Jane Anders— writer, podcast host, event impresario and one of the founders of io9, a website devoted to science fiction, fantasy, futurism, science, technology and related news. She’s the author of several books of speculative fiction and “inspirational weirdness,” including Victories Greater Than Death, The City in the Middle of the Night, and All the Birds in the Sky. She’s here today to hold our hands as we try to wrestle with creativity in times of crisis, the subject of her new book, Never Say You Can’t Survive: How to Get Through Hard Times By Making Up Stories.
