In this episode I'm joined by most frequent guest: Ruth Kinna. Ruth and I continue our conversation about William Morris by discussing his science fictional work News from Nowhere. Ruth and I discuss how this work differs from Edward Bellamy's more famous fantasy of state socialism, Looking Backward, and how Morris could produce this anarchist utopia without declaring himself an anarchism.

Please note that we do discuss sensitive topics in this episode, such as child abuse, as we talk about how the people in Morris' society would handle them
