TSP – Episode 7 (1hr 54m)

This time I was prepared for Kai being unable to record the podcast with me.  Two previous guests joined me for Episode 7 and we kicked arse!  Cars, Jay and myself (Sarah) discussed our most controversial topic so far: Sex on Sims.

Topics discussed include:

  • Sim ratings
  • What can you get away with for each rating
  • Brief history lesson on the colonisation of America
  • Discussing ratings of Trek episodes and movies
  • Ratings of other shows and ‘controversial’ episodes
  • We discuss the sexual antics of some of our characters – Jay’s sex JP
  • When is a good time to write sex?
  • Consequences of sex and we get philosophical
  • Discussing sex and sexuality of our characters
  • Star Trek being ahead of its time – those controversial kisses
  • A challenge is issued to Jay
  • Advice on how to write a post that contains sex

TSP – Episode 5 (59m)

Sadly Kai had to go out and get drunk during the recording of this uber-long podcast.  So, instead of just sitting there chatting with one guest, I decided to have two (Warr and Jay).  Listen in to the first hour of this almost two hour episode (part two coming as soon as I’ve finished editing it–don’t hold your breath as I’m (Sarah) currently sick).

Topics discussed include:

  • Jay regales us about his XO
  • Star Trek is a soap opera – especially VOY
  • Putting in effort and thought to certain species
  • Collaborative writing and ownership
