Uncanny

Four stories that imagine a different, but familiar, reality.

Description

Guest host Kate Burton presents four works with a hint of strangeness. Your laptop wants the best for you, with a little reciprocity, in “Cat Pictures Please,” by Naomi Kritzer, performed by Nia Vardalos. “There Will Come Soft Rains” is an eerie post-apocalypse classic by Ray Bradbury, performed by Kathleen Chalfant. A despondent housewife gets a lift from a seductive window treatment in Michel Faber’s “The Eyes of the Soul,” performed by Sam Underwood. And poet Tracy K. Smith imagines a better world in “Sci-Fi,” performed by Valorie Curry.
