Listen in as they share their thoughts on the first half of the season (including the, so far, stellar handling of mental health issues), their hopes and speculations for the second half of the season (like the morally grey question of how to stop the DMA), who we’re star-shipping as a couple this season (you might be rooting for them too), and most controversially, Jonathan Frakes’ direction of episode 6 (gasp!) All this and more on today’s episode of Feminist Frequency’s Star Trek Podcast!

Sassy Black Women Bring It

I’ve been listening to this podcast since about halfway through season 2 of Discovery and i have to say that listening to two sassy black women review star trek is the point of view that I didn’t know i needed. But now i do. As a bald white man, the “Hair Report” kind of confused me at first, but now i find myself watching all kinds of tv and “T’sking” about ethnic hair choices.

Best STD recap podcast there is

Best STD recap podcast there is. I love their perspective.

Needed a new discovery pod in my life - found a great one!

I love the dynamic between the hosts and their guests. Their variance of opinion keeps the show very interesting and makes you think about Discovery eps in new ways.

Also - I haven’t watched much (any really) of TOS but in a recent episode Ebony mentioned the intense scene of the Enterprise blowing up and I just had to check it out. Safe to say, I’ll definitely be looking into more older Trek now!
