Star Trek and the Jews

I am thrilled to be a guest on the podcast Star Trek and the Jews, a monthly podcast using Star Trek to boldly explore the world of Jews and Judaism! We discussed the Star Trek stories Creative Couplings about a Klingon/Jewish wedding, and the revenge/forgiveness story "An Easy Fast" in Tales from the Captain's Table . My interview appears in Part I of a two-part series. The second part features an interview with the authors of the above stories. Check it out at .
