Anomaly: Sci-Fi / Fantasy Geek Chats
Fun, conversational episodes since 2007 on Sci-fi / Fantasy and geek culture. We cover: fan conventions, sci fi fantasy TV, book, movies and more. In addition to the 50 episodes available here, you'll find many, many more at anomalypodcast.com.

**Please visit the show notes for links mentioned and related episodes and blog posts.**  "Remember Me" is one of the greatest Star Trek episodes all time, and Doctor Beverly Crusher is one of Trek's most significant role models—Bev definitely deserved more stories like this. Best selling author and fellow Trekkie, Gail Carriger, joins Jen and Angela to discuss why they love "Remember Me" and admire Beverly as much as they do. The three also chat about other TNG episodes, Gail's books and funny fan girl moments.

In this episode of Anomaly Supplemental, KC and Sue discuss Ursula K. Le Guin's groundbreaking 1969 novel The Left Hand of Darkness, winner of both the Hugo and Nebula Awards for Best Novel of the Year.

The Left Hand of Darkness is regularly cited in discussions of gender and sexuality in science-fiction, but also touches on concepts of interpersonal relationship, international politics, patriotism, fear, and more. It is "among the first books published in the feminist science fiction genre and the most famous example of androgyny in science fiction" (Wikipedia). And it is often on lists of the best science fiction books, and almost always on top ten lists of feminist sci-fi and/or books by women sci-fi authors. So we both felt that it was about time we read it...

In honor of Valentine's Day (a day we're brainwashed by marketers to buy candy), Jen & Angela talk about their favorite Sci-Fi Fantasy couples. Again! If they didn't cover it in this episode, and it's not in their previous Sci-Fi Fantasy Couple episode, email them and let them know and they'll cover it next time we do one of these shipper shows! Thanks for listening! Be sure to visit the show notes for links and a mini blog post on the subject. :)

February starts with Anomaly Supplemental’s KC and Sue chatting about yet another underrated modern Disney classic: Lilo & Stitch.

The two hosts talk about the animation style and behind the scenes trivia, the blend of humor and drama, what sets little Lilo apart from her Disney princess counterparts, and how your family, or “ohana”, can extend to other people and pets. Plus, KC shows off her Stitch impression.
