The First Debate and Star Trek

Episode Description

We process the first presidential debate with the help of Jamilah King, host of The Mother Jones Podcast. And the debut of Ian Alexander on Star Trek; named Gray, in the Star Trek franchise. He joins Imara to discuss his new groundbreaking role in Star Trek: Discovery, what trans actors bring to the screen, and how to make television more inclusive. The new season of Star Trek, which introduces Gray and a non-binary character named Adira, premieres October 15th.  

Trans Joy: Tyler Rodriguez, the Donation Program Director for Point of Pride, talks to us about the joy he feels helping other trans people feel more comfortable in their bodies through the organization’s binder exchange program.
