When the Enterprise drops off a Dustbuster Club on a planet besieged by plot-forwarding radiation, the away team loses track of Geordi and beams up an injured Romulan instead. Stuck in a hole and slowly going blind, Geordi's fate lies with an ally who discloses some troubling opinions about eugenics. How careful do you have to be when a Romulan pulls you over? Can gaberdine wick away moisture before the chafing starts? Is this the start of Riker's drinking problem? It's the episode where Worf is made to disclose his donation status.

Magic Lessons Ep. 201: "You Have a Screaming, Not a Calling." Featuring Sarah Jones

| 0 comments

Jo has spent years working on her phD on the Holocaust and fighting for feminist causes, but that work is not where her true passions lie. She wants to fulfill a childhood dream and write comedy and comic novels. Jo wonders: am I allowed to stop saving the world and make fun art? Elizabeth Gilbert offers Jo advice along with her friend, the performer and playwright Sarah Jones. And we check in with Jo several weeks later to hear how the advice landed and inspired change.

Special Guest: Sarah Jones is a playwright and performer, best known for her one-woman Broadway show Bridge and Tunnel which won a special Tony award. Her latest project called Sell/Buy/Date is about sex trafficking and exploitation. And she's about to launch her own podcast, Play Date with Sarah Jones, with Public Radio International. Find out more about her at sarahjonesonline.com.

Minority Korner

It's our tribute to Larry Bird episode! Just kidding! But hold on to your butts as we dish on random subjects from 'Crazy Ex Girlfriend' to the debate around the new out Star Trek character. Should you be watching 'Stranger Things'? YES! Nnekay takes sides on the feud that most didn't even know existed between Charlize Theron and one of the Sister Sister... sisters. James jumps into the perplexing nature of the RNC especially when it comes to the gays there both in and out of the Log Cabin closet. And what's Third Eye Blind doing there? In a more positive corner Nnekay is shinning some light on a community doing some good for others in Berkeley, as it lives up to it's name 'The City of Refuge'. Are Ghostbuster toys selling? Are Muslims being targeted for discrimination on planes? Are Latinos para Trump? Does that even make any sense? Find out in this weeks Quizlet Korner.

One Bad Mother Episode 164: Who Are We to Other People's Kids? Plus Aya de Leon on Talking With Our Kids About Race and Activism

Show: 
One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Aya de Leon

Biz and Theresa wonder if we're overstepping our boundaries when our kids' friends ask us questions about the way the world works or need our help solving a problem. Are we "parenting" other people's kids, or is this just what they mean when they say, "It takes a village!" Plus, Biz is inconsistent in her feminist teachings, Theresa's kids are taking "dress up" to a new level, and we talk with author, activist, UC Berkeley faculty, and mom Aya de Leon, about how to talk with our young kids about racism, inequality, and activism.

Hello my friends, we meet again! It's been awhile, where should we begin? Well, Travis just got back from San Diego Comic Con and he want to tell you all about it! Brent's got some rumors and news about Nintendo! Future consoles? Stock Prices? You betcha! A comedian in Canada has been fined $42,000 for making mean jokes (there's a lot more to it than that) and it has sparked a big discussion about sensitivity and humor! The Democratic National Convention took place this week and the people have some strong thoughts! All that, plus the Wi-Five of the Week! Enjoy!
