114. What If The Abolition of Man Became A Political Thriller? | The Testimony of Calvin Lewis with Daniel Friend
What if the government had a device that provided a vivid, dreamlike access to your memories? What if it allowed you to remove traumatic events from your past? How might such a device further the human condition, or corrupt it? Would you trust Uncle Sam with the deepest parts of your mind?
Daniel Friend is the writer and producer of The Testimony of Calvin Lewis, a novel to be published in Fall 2022 that he has first released as a theatrical podcast. His story was inspired by C.S. Lewis’s Abolition of Man as he worked with a group to write and publish A Compass for Deep Heaven: Navigating the C.S. Lewis Ransom Trilogy. He currently works as a reporter for The Texan in Austin.
