My Favorite Podcast!
Thank you for making such an incredible podcast! I love the thoughtful selection of your topics, and I’ve enjoyed every episode I’ve listened to. Keep up the great work!
I’ve really enjoyed going back through and listening to your older episodes, especially the Indigenous Representation in Trek. We need a petition to CBS & the Roddenberry network to hire Indigenous writers and directors for Discovery & Picard!
