Anita is pulling double podcast duty this week, and this time, she’s got Ebony in on the action to discuss Star Trek Discovery. This first episode digs into what they love about Star Trek (and what they don’t). Listen in as Anita and Ebony talk about the first two episodes of the new series, “The Vulcan Hello” and “Battle at the Binary Stars" as they attempt to wrestle with Starfleet’s mission of exploration, the draw of a woman of color in command, and why Ebony will be paying close attention to Lt. Burnham’s hair over the course of the season.
Hello, humans! A new Star Trek series has appeared and in this episode we review the one hour premiere of “Star Trek: Discovery.” We discuss the comportment of bridge officers, the “Star Trek: Shenzhou” prequel series we never saw, the appearance of the Star Trek Sound Effects pack, why Vulcans are kind of jerks, and the validity of using small caps in your caption font. And much, much more!
(Note: This episode only contains spoilers for the very first hour of “Star Trek: Discovery.” In fact, we made a point of recording it immediately after viewing. In our next episode we’ll discuss the second hour.)

The Colorado Department of Transportation says the 420 mile markers on the state’s highways were stolen so often, they had to replace them with 419.99 mile markers. Many people know that “420” represents marijuana – hence the popularity of the mile markers – but very few know why. It’s not a police code, it’s not the number of chemical compounds in cannabis, and it’s certainly not Bob Marley’s birthday. Today on the show, we try for the real story.
