Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel sit down with YA expert and friend of RevolutionSF Amy Sturgis, to look at the phenomenon of dystopian kids fiction. Together they realize that it’s not that new a trend, giving you the listener some favorite books from the past 50 or so years. In addition, Deanna links Twilight to teen rebellion and Gary proves that he is on to something.

Our theme music is “Cultists On Board” by Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, courtesy of Divine Industries.
