    Alex Kurtzman and Olatunde Osunsanmi discuss Star Trek: Discovery S3

    Alex Kurtzman and Olatunde Osunsanmi discuss Star Trek: Discovery S3

    Welcome to a bonus episode of theblerdgurl Podcast! In this interview, I get a chance to talk to Star Trek: Discovery executive producer and Creator Alex Kurtzman along with co-executive producer and director Olatunde Osunsanmi. 







    So I’m really really excited to bring you this episode because, since the season 3 finale dropped, we were free to talk about the whole season. We talked about everything from how the pandemic has affected production, to saying goodbye to Michelle Yeoh’s character Georgiou, even directing Doug Jones out of makeup, and the future of the Federation. Tunde also shared why the season 3 finale of DISCO is so important to him.

    David Ajala talks about Cleveland Booker of DISCO

    David Ajala talks about Cleveland Booker of DISCO

    Hey Star Trek fans guess what? I had an amazing chat with David Ajala, the new star of Star Trek: Discovery Season 3. He plays Cleveland Booker, the rogue pilot that Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) meets when she crash lands in the future after the events of the season 2 finale. In this timeline, there is no federation…or is there?















    If Ajala looks familiar, that’s because he has been on theblerdgurl podcast before. And he starred as Manchester Black on Supergirl and as the elusive Captain Roy Eros on SYFY’s Nightflyers.  He’s also had guest-starring roles on Black Mirror and the video game franchise Mass Effect.







    This is the podcast version of my youtube interview with Ajala last year. Now that Season 3 is all over, see if you pick up all of the hints he was dropping! Plus he lives!

    Raven the Science Maven looks like a Scientist

    Raven the Science Maven looks like a Scientist

    On World Science Day a couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to speak with a woman reshaping the image of Black women in science, Raven Baxter. (a.k.a. “Raven the Science Maven”) . I first heard about Raven when her music video Big Ole Geeks, a “science parody” of Megan Thee Stallion’s Big Ole Freak, popped up on my Twitter feed last summer. Needless to say it blew up. Since then, she has created more videos, including Wipe it Down, (about the Coronavirus), she’s given a TED Talk and was named Fortune Magazine’s 40 under 40 in Health this year!







    Raven is an American science communicator and doctoral student completing a Ph.D. in science education. I wanted to talk to her about her journey as a Black woman within the science space. We talked about how lonely being incorporate science can be, how she stopped codeswitching and got real in the lab and why she is dedicated to teaching a creative approach to science so that kids actually enjoy it!. So check out my interview with Raven the Science Maven!

    Cartoonist Keith Knight is WOKE

    Cartoonist Keith Knight is WOKE

    My latest guest is someone I’ve actually known for a  few years now, Keith Knight. Keith is an American cartoonist and musician known for his comic strips The K Chronicles, ink, and The Knight Life. While his work is humorous and universal in appeal, he also often deals with political, social, and racial issues. The new show Woke is based on his life and some of the people in it. I have seen all 6 episode and I will warn you that towards the end of this episode we get a little spoilery but nothing too heavy. Woke is basically what happens when the white guy’s best friend in a comedy, gets his own show. But I’ll let Keith explain it.

Speaking my life language

I’ve been a blerd all my life, and as you know, that means it took a while to find any more of us! Not only am I loving the way you think and your interview style, but I don’t think I’m the “average Timeless fan” you giggled about, and I’ve heard a wide range of Malcolm Barrett interviews and performances by now. Yours is my favorite; I need you to know that’s a big deal. If I tell you I was shocked when you said you had not yet met in person, I hope you know how impressed I am with the rapport you built. He is a gifted guest, and not only did you land him; you brought out things in him I’ve never heard him relax enough to say. I’m sticking with you for sure; you’ve got the right stuff, and then some. So if you want to be entertained, challenged thoughtfully, and feel like you learned more about life from an interview, tune in to The Blerdgurl. I’ll be there getting a jump on you with her.
