Is Kobayashi Maru a new code word for un-ending, un-winnable tests for women of color leaders? Is President Relik the new Space Karen? Will Alex Kurtzman ever stop with planet genocide as a plot point?   Join hosts Alison De La Cruz, Claudia Alick, and Maya Chinchilla explore these topics and more as they dive into the Season 4 premier of Star Trek Discovery, "Kobayashi Maru".

SIGNAL BOOST

** PUENTES SONOROS **
Puentes Sonoros (Sonic Bridges) is the new album of our favorite band -- the Grammy-winning East L.A. band QUETZAL. These musicians stand at the center of transnational and transformative son jarocho practice, bridging rural life of Veracruz, Mexico, and contemporary Chicano sensibilities of urban struggle for freedom and self-determination. The strumming of traditional strings and percussive zapateado blend purposefully with Afro-diasporic R&B and batá, drawing from cultural roots to craft echoes of the future.   Find out more on Instagram @Quetzalmusic, or at https://linktr.ee/Quetzalmusic
