RUNNING LIST OF REFERENCES I'VE HIDDEN IN EPISODES OF MEANWHILE IN THE FUTURE

My new goal is to add a fun reference to every episode.
  1. Episode 1 - the company that makes the artificial wombs in named Stavia, after one of the main characters in the book The Gate to Women's Country that features a matriarchy.
  2. Episode 1 - The first baby to leave the Stavia facility is named Rokeya, after the author Rokey Sakhawat Hussain, a Muslim feminist and science fiction author who wrote a short story called Sultana's Dream in 1905 about a feminist utopia.
  3. Episode 6 - At one point in the episode (which is about drugs that make you never need to sleep) I quote Empire Records. "There are 24 usable hours in the day."
    Special shoutout to @hels who inspired this quote in her earlier episode of the Eater Upsell!
  4. Episode 11 - NOT EVEN OUT YET SNEAK PEAK I name a company that makes wind turbines Vayutech, after Vayu the Hindu Lord of the winds.
