Episode Notes

William Gibson  wakes up each morning, not knowing what to expect, like many of us we open twitter to see what's happening in the world. William  is also trying to imagine twitter without the pandemic,  what the news would have been?  He likens this Pandemic as the opportunity to experience the big global climate change catastrophe - before it really kicks in.
