This week, we’re discussing how technology functions, or doesn’t function, in a fantasy setting. Of course, we get into Harry Potter first, because it’s absolutely critical to know what kind of water-management system Hogwarts has. But it’s not all about the Wizarding World, we promise! We also discuss how powerful magic should be in order to compete with technology and the implications of automation. Plus, a thrilling discussion about cranks and their many uses!
