In this episode I delve into the Cyberpunk genre for the first time, talking about William Gibson's 1984 novel Neuromancer in particularly! I explore quite bit over how there is much more to Cyberpunk than pure aesthetics. In terms of critique, genre, and possibility, there is more to it being done, and that can be done with it, along with elaborating these questions of the genre and how we can think and critique it.

I don't go over everything there is in it, but I certainly go over some of the big questions and even sneak in a bit about AI which was good fun too, enjoy!
