142: Well, Here We Yar

2020-06-2957:44

Raised on an lawless colony world, Tasha Yar dedicated her too-short life to order and justice. This week we discuss Tasha’s origins and plumb the depths of her most memorable moments, from “The Naked Now” to “Yesterday’s Enterprise.” We have partnered with several other Star Trek podcasts and fansites for the #TrekkiesTogether campaign. This campaign is about coming together as a community to support those fighting for racial justice and working to build a more equal future. As part of this campaign, Women at Warp has made a central donation to The East of the River Mutual Aid Fund from Black Lives Matter in Washington DC (as well as individual local donations). Please join us if you are able.

My favorite podcast. I love the range of opinions, which are always discussed and valued. I'll often have to go back and rewatch an episode because of something I completely missed or viewed differently. Thanks for being welcoming of diversity in people and opinions. LLAP

This was really disappointing. Too much "oh my gawd" and "like, totally"...... I could feel them chomping their bubble gum and twirling their hair. Was really looking forward to this podcast and have been very let down by the She-Ra Man Haters Club podcast. Ironic that your episode about Wolf In The Fold and at least one of them said it almost made them stop watching TOS, because this episode ended this podcast for me
