Episode #21: How technology ended death

Dr. Tobias Wilson-Bates and Darien are joined by Nick Olcott and Andrew Adelsberger, director and one of the lead cast members, from The Emperor of Atlantis, an opera that was written inside a Nazi prison camp, and is now opening in Washington, D.C. They explore the idea, introduced in the opera, that the rise of mechanized killing machines has changed how we understand death, and in turn, how we live our lives.
