139. Every Trek Everywhere All At Once (Q-Squared)

Anika and Liz confront their alternate universe selves (who are them but with more trauma and different hairstyles). Along the way, we discuss…

  • Toxic masculinity spoils the party again
  • Track A is trauma all the way down
  • The entire multiverse ships Picard/Crusher, which, honestly? Feels right!
  • We shouldn’t have to say this, but infidelity does not justify murder
  • Like
  • Come on guys
  • Content warning: we discuss real world family violence and the murder-suicide in this book from about 7:25 to 15:00
  • (The specific details of the murder-suicide run from 11:42 to 15:00)
  • (Also Liz’s cat started walking acoss the desk and brushing his tail against the pop filter around the 15 minute mark — at least, that’s where it became impossible to mute the track because Liz was speaking)
  • This book owes Deanna Troi an apology
  • Tasha Yar, Hair Exposition and a long digression on the semiotics of short hair on women in the 1980s (Liz looked up Denise Crosby’s Playboy shoot, but it was for research, honest!)

Finally, we are once again asking our listeners to consider supporting the fundraiser to cover Mr David’s medical expenses and the renovations required to make his home accessible.
