Episode 207 :: Cyberpunk is Dead, Long Live Cyberpunk

This one goes out to the technophiles living in the midst of urban decay; subsisting solely on soylent and jacked wi-fi - the coolest literary wastrels of the 20th century: the cyberpunks.
Join high-tech lowlifes Cap, Jess, Jon, Brandon, and Denika as we get lost in the neon-lit dystopia of favorite sci-fi subgenres. We examine cyberpunk's origins in the techno-future of the 80s, how our present reality reflects the sci-fi fears of the era, and how, though the movement was pronounced dead, it continues to evolve.

This double-length Microsode was brought to you by the combined forces of Nerdy Show fans Zombiepops and Jobarda.
