Singer/songwriter and activist Tae Phoenix joins the show this week to talk about political activism, protesting, and Star Trek. On the episode, we discuss what protesting looks like in the Federation, the unfathomable empathy of Trek characters, staring down the barrel of history, finding (or lacking) a moral center, scaling the helping impulse to systemic issues, conservative Trek fans, socialism saving Quark’s, using genre spaces to explore social injustice, Sisko explaining Reaganomics, Tae pitches two cool new Trek series, and Kal achieves a new level of depressed sighing!
WARNING: THIS ADULT DISCUSSION CONTAINS ADULT LANGUAGE AND IS 30% COOLER FOR IT
