Move over Nerdbros. Alice Wetterlund and Veronica Osorio are bringing a much needed feminist perspective to the sci-fi roundtable, dissecting Star Trek: The Next Generation episode by episode with their hilarious friends.
"A star got a lady pregnant." Dream guest Mary Holland (Wild Horses, Veep, Blunt Talk) joins Alice & Veronica to talk S2E1 of Star Trek: The Next Generation, "The Child," in which Troi goes into labor with an alien child and it's... orgasmic??? This cues a deep dive into the way overused sci-fi/fantasy trope of the "mystical pregnancy" and an exploration of its misogynistic connotations.
Plus the first appearances of Dr. Pulaski (ugh, come back Crusher) and Guinan (finally). AND Mary has Patrick Stewart stories from the set of Blunt Talk.
