Margaret Atwood, author of The Year of the Flood, discusses her speculative fiction, her dystopian vision of the future, and her popularity on Twitter.
Best tweet of the weekend:@discovietnam: Watching the Jets is like watching True Blood: interested to see what happens each week but I know better than to get emotionally invested.
Maybe Atwood's turnip could form an alliance with Michael Moore's ficus!
Is it at all relevant that the turnip is a *root* vegetable?
To the producer: But it's still not clear in the description for that segment that comments are being taken there, & there's no link to the it's-a-free-country site.
We're taking the nominations over at the It's A Free Country site. You'll find a link in the segment, but here it is:http://beta.wnyc.org/articles/its-free-country/2010/sep/20/30-issues-30-days-nominate-issue/
why no comments section for Election Issues and Questions segment?
