Angel Two is a feminist Star Trek podcast. In each episode, we discuss aspects of Star Trek from a feminist perspective; specific episodes, characters, themes and the implied messages about humanity and equality in the future, as well as over the last 50 years.

As it's the season for surprises and jump scares, we decided to appear from nowhere to talk about seasonally-appropriate Trek episodes.
This is part one of two because we ended up choosing lots of episodes (and yet still not covering them all) so watch your feed for the rest of the discussion.
Spoilers for: Catspaw (TOS); Genesis, Frame of Mind, Schisms, Night Terrors and Sub Rosa (TNG); and The Assignment (DS9)
If you would prefer 3+ hour long podcasts in future, you can reach us through the interweb tubes (no half-spider Barclays involved! ... web? geddit? It's funny.)

Content warning: near the end of the show, when we are discussing our favourite and not-so-favourite things/characters in Discovery, Fiona makes reference to PTSD and sexualised violence. Please keep this in mind if these are difficult topics for you.
Is that your threat ganglia showing or are you just surprised to see us in your podcast subscriptions feed?
We are back, from outer space. You opened up your podcast app, with a sad look upon your face. You love our stupid show, our wit and humour are the key, and without any warning, we're back to bother thee...
In this episode we talk Chapter 1 of Star Trek: Discovery. I'm not sure how else to describe it. We have mixed feelings, and we discuss them as we generally do. There are spoilers for the first half of season 1 of Discovery, because it would be quite difficult to talk about it for an hour and not spoil anything.

Does anyone read show notes? I feel like my best work is in here. Ah well. Tweet us or like us on Facebook or follow us on Instagram. Post a photo of you revelling in the show notes and tag us on the social media and I'll send you a badge!
Our What We Left Behind backer pins arrived, listen to us duke it out as only we can to decide who gets who! Also there's some discussion of Discovery (dunno if you'll have heard of it, there's not been much publicity or anything.)
But Is It Though?
Lookie loo, guess who?
Yes, we're back. Winter's pretty much a write-off for us, so consider this a new season of Angel Two?
Due to technical problems and possibly the worst bad mental health period I've had since the last one the time I went to hospital, this is fully a month after we recorded. And the editing is minimal. Sorry that I couldn't do a better job, but there's Women At Warp if you want something more professional sounding!
I also have no idea what's in this episode, so tweet me @angeltwopod or @hallyrackit if there's anything you think I've missed.
For the love of...
Thanks for sticking with us, folks! A couple of months ago, Adam Nimoy's documentary For the Love of Spock was released and as Sophie had contributed to the Kickstarter, she graciously waited until we were all together before watching it. Patience of a saint, that woman. We discuss said film and our thoughts on it and then, as we do, meander off topic a bit. AB and Fiona even disagree on something! Phasers (set to stun, we don't hate each other that much) at dawn!
To watch For the Love of Spock yourself, going to fortheloveofspock.com will get you started.
