The Rules of Acquisition: A Star Trek Deep Space Nine Podcast

Duet (DS9 S1E18)

March 10, 2020

No time for ridicule, this is A Very Special Episode! Kira duets with a Cardassian, and three white guys from the bible belt get uncomfortable talking about the Holocaust. From post Cold War relations to The Man in the Glass Booth, Adolf Eichmann, and the Banality of Evil; how can art, and specifically science fiction, best approach some of these prickly topics? Lot's to talk about, and we might not fully cover every controversial subject, including AIDS, without being interrupted by the end... Art's tricky man, I dunno.

Wade reflects on then and now and what we think about now with the world the way it is.
