What if? It’s a question from which many great comic books, sci-fi shows and post-apocalyptic fiction and film spring. The power to ask it is rooted in one of the greatest treasures of the human condition: the imagination. Our imagination allows us to conceive of a future where our world can be different and our stories can be reinvented. But when the imagination turns to the past it can quickly lose its ability to liberate us and actually can hold us hostage. In this podcast we consider why this happens and what to do when it does.
