The Life Radio Show 5/12/2020

I had a great time discussing Hungry Trilobyte with Don Smith from The Life Radio Show, out of WWSU. We got to cover a lot of ground on why fandom helps people cope, and how to use it to prompt creativity and positivity. I cover my favorite Treks, analyze the newer Star Wars movies, and gush over MST3k in the 21st century.

This time around, she and I discuss the new series Picard, its relation to Discovery and other Trek series, and what it’s like to live in the new golden age of Trek. What’s the downside of using a replicator? How big of a moment is it to see Guinan and Seven of Nine? In her words, we are such geeks about this!

Lee Sargent is a popular artist, known for his childlike interpretations of scenes from Star Trek, Dr. Who, and Stargate. Lee feels passionately about letting people enjoy stories on their own terms, that stories are about escapism and creativity. What I love about this chat is that we get to discuss the balance between an artist’s original intention and the audience’s vision. We also get to talk about Australia’s wildlife and doing cons outside the US, with such awesome events as Oz Comic Con and Supanova in his backyard.
