Brian and Sam continue their discussion of Star Trek: Discovery season 4, focusing on the issue of non-violent solutions to problems in this series. Why does the choice of non-violence seem so counterintuitive, or even dangerous, to modern audiences? We discuss American culture’s acceptance of escalating violence as legitimate and our fear of returning good for evil. Is Star Trek one of our greatest pop-culture prophets?
Plus we discuss our respective Father’s Days festivities and Brian gets a mandolin.
