Episode 39 - Kajira of Gor by John Norman, with SPECIAL GUEST!

We have a very special treat for you this episode! Miss Honey Analverkehr of My Mum is a Pornstar joined us all the way from Australia to talk about a book that had a big impact on her as a young person, John Norman's Kajira of Gor. Note: unfortunately, we had some audio issues with this one (we keep trying different things for these pandemic episodes but they keep on having different problems!) but we felt the content was so great we had to release it even though every time we talk over each other it sounds like we're bobbing for apples. It's fine, they were great apples! Miss Honey is fantastic and much more charismatic than we are, so you're not going to want to miss this one.
 Tiffany is the world's stupidest perfume counter girl who gets groomed and then abducted to Gor, where men are men and women dribble the oils of submission! She spends the majority of the book thinking about how much she wants to get enslaved instead of thinking about how she is OBVIOUS…

Episode 12: "Imzadi"


Welcome to March Madness, which is soon gonna be April Madness, where we read outside our normal parameters!

First up, MAKE IT SO!

We're going where we won't slut shame you if several men, a few women, and the odd salt vampire have gone before!  We're talkin' bout Darmok and Jalad between the sheets!  That's right - we read Imzadi!

Courtney doesn't know shit about Star Trek.  Sara has a tattoo in Vulcan.  Neither of us are really down for a book with FOUR GODDAMNED FRAMING DEVICES and at least, at LEAST, four? timelines.

So.  Ugh.  God.  Like, you know Troi and Riker are exes, right?  (Courtney, that's The Hair and The Beard.)  Let's say this is the book about their prior relationship and leave it there.  Let's not discuss the <checks notes> time travel plot that ends up with somebody going bowling with Data's head, the completely unnecessary device of starting the book at the end of "The City on the Edge of Forever", the fact that you have to remember throughout this book that we're talking about Beardless Riker, and the cringeworthy conversation between Admiral Riker and Captain Crusher about how all the dudes used to jack it to Troi's ridiculous outfits.

Thankfully, the rapeometer is set at zero with this one because I don't have the emotional bandwidth for that.  (Late note: AS WE WERE PODCASTING we realized that it's possible, but we're kind of unclear on it, that there was a sexual encounter where one of the participants was a shapeshifter pretending to be somebody else, which is obviously fucked up.  I guess not quite as fucked up as the idea that you can write a book where somebody MIGHT have been raped by misrepresentation but the last quarter of the book is so confusing that nobody is sure.)

Here is some pictorial proof that I, Sara, am a big ol' nerd.  @ me if you want but don't you fucking dare try to gatekeep me.  I watched Enterprise and did not once hit "skip intro", bitches.  If "Faith of the Heart" couldn't break me no Redditor will.



Our musical guest today is Warp 11; we used their song "Yeah Brother" but pretty much all of their "I'd like to fuck some Star Trek babes in the butt" songs would have been appropriate.  I personally dig "That's Why I'm In A Star Trek Band" and "Everything I Do I Do With William Shatner".  You can find them in all the usual places - Amazon, iTunes, Spotify, etc.  Here's their album Red Alert:




I was searching for this funny video of Troi making "empath" faces and they put in fart noises, right?  Well it turns out if you Google "video troi fart" that there are way more of these than there really should be and so now I feel kinda weird about it.  And y'all don't even know what it means for me to feel weird about a fart joke.  I mean we got Fart Trek: The Next Flatulation, we got A Christmas Fart in the Turbolift - I am not making this up - then we got Star Trek Fartershop Quartet but anyway like here's this (and please understand I am not endorsing misspelling "Counselor".)

  1. @Sarah, Are you Single? Asking for a friend.
    If no, I mean... Sometimes the walls have to fall, like Shaka.
