Sometimes the question “what if…?” leads to dark and compelling places. What if the Axis powers had won World War II and now ruled the United States? Amazon’s hit show, The Man in the High Castle, based on the Philip K. Dick novella, dares to explore an answer. Claire and Kyle discuss Western civilization’s long love of alternate histories, and the journey of producing and marketing a story about victorious Nazis. They close with their thoughts on the show, the book, and how the late Philip K. Dick deserves a standing ovation.
