#239 – ‘Whistlespeak’ & ‘Erigah’ Discovery S5E06 & 07

In their rush to find the next clue, Tilly and Burnham almost kill a priest’s child. Join your parched hosts as they discuss excellent direction, comforting throw-back plots, and the value of accessible character motivations. Also, Dan tries Vegemite live on air, and Dan and Patrick recount their experience attending the the “Whistlespeak” premiere at the Washington, DC headquarters of the Motion Picture Association of America with special guest Sonequa Martin-Green.

Spoiler warning! We dive right into a detail-rich discussion of this episode of Star Trek: Discovery, so if you haven’t had a chance to see it yet – beware!

Next week: We continue our weekly coverage of Star Trek: Discovery’s fifth and final season with our discussion of “Labyrinths”.

Note that this and all episodes of the It’s Got Star Trek podcast contain explicit language and, frankly, an unnecessary amount of offensive content, so the show is intended only for adults and really really cool kids.
