Nov 30, 2021

On this Bonus Episode of The Sociologist's Dojo Podcast Dr. Rebecca Gibson is back on the Pod to talk about Ann Leckie's 2013 Hugo and Nebula Award winning novel Ancillary Justice. We talk a lot about Gendered Pronouns, Consciousness and Colonialism. Later, we both engage in "delighted Flailing" as we geek out over the first trailer for The Matrix: Resurrections trying to understand what it all means before the film is released Dec 21st.
