Dinner Party Download

Some of you might recall that I recently sent a lengthy email to the producers of Dinner Party Download, a weekly broadcast on NPR.  This was after their annual Oscar episode in which they discussed #oscarsowhite.  One of the hosts mentioned that he didn't find much representation in Science Fiction, which I took slight issue with.  While there could always be more, I thought it would be a disservice to the brave souls who have blazed a trail before us.  Star Trek is not the waters' edge when it comes to SciFi and I wanted the listening public to know.  Evidently the producers at Dinner Party Download did too.  They were gracious enough to contact me and ask me to say a few words on this weeks upcoming broadcast!  The original email can be read here.  For those of you who do not live in the US, I will be posting a link to the url where the broadcast is streamed live, as well as the url where the broadcast is available to listen to after it airs.  Below is their response.
