Podcast 30: Shamefully returning to what Joey wants

As Joey likes to put it, the experiment failed. We have moved back to our 4 television episode per podcast format. I was really hoping that we could shorten the podcast length but it seems that it does not matter how many Next Generation television episodes we cover we still seem to end up over 2 hours. Oh well it was worth a try. We were pleased to have Jared pop in on us this week to lend his assistance on Ethics. And we also had lots of listener comments (thanks to Listener Jim, My Friend Jon Madsen, Simon, and Julia). This podcast covers episodes 13-16 of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Season 5.

Various topics discussed in this podcast include:
    JC Hutchins 7th Son Novel
    Welcome to listener Julia
    Genetically Engineering things: Sharktopus and Humans
    What wins: Rights of the one, Or, the Good of society?
    Granting Asylum
    Passionate street sweepers
    Rabbits and Pregnancy Tests: Who came up with this one?
    Stump Jared: TW5 3, Jared 1
    Assisted Suicide
    Moral Absolutes: 2+2≠4
    Medical testing: What is too far?
