Podcast 16: Maybe we should kidnap a listener?

We're running a little bit behind because Pete can't tell the difference between a video file and the MP3s of our podcast, so tonight the summary is brought to you by Joey!

This is the second consecutive podcast where it was just Pete and I - we had really hoped to have Jared back on for this podcast, but time did not allow - and, as a result, you'll hear at least 2 pleas from us that you either come on the show, or send us comments, or even just send us an email telling everyone how bad you hate Pete! I think we'd read just about anything "on the air" at this point.

This podcast covers episodes 17-20 of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Season 3. Pete's Friend Jon Madsen repeated his previous 'verbal gymnastics', sending some notes over IM that we recorded - see, I told you we'd read just about anything!

Various topics discussed in this podcast include:
    Klingons have no honor
    Animal experimentation: wrong or right?
    Anarchy: what's the hype?
    When is kidnapping mistreatment? Sometimes God Has a Kid's Face
    Horga'hn (pronounced whore-gone) doesn't do what you might expect!
    Pete is fascinated with the portrayal of men's nipples on television
    Joey wouldn't trust future-Pete
    Another plea to listeners to provide new points of view
    Joey ignores his voices for the good of humanity
    Would you want to read minds?
    Co-dependent enablers

My husband and I have just finished Season 2, so I'm several podcasts behind and haven't actually listened to this one yet. However, I saw your plea for comments, and I wanted to let you know that I'm enjoying the podcast a lot. You guys are obviously having a lot of fun making it, and that really comes through. Most of my fannish friends are women, so it's fun to get guys' viewpoints. It cracks me up how much you hate Tasha Yar; I'd seen a lot of fond references to her over the years, so I couldn't believe how bad she was when I finally saw her. Of course, I liked Pulaski, so I don't exactly have my finger on the pulse of popular fannish opinion.

... I've forgotten what my point was. Anyway, I really enjoy the podcast, and keep up the good work!
