00b. Programming Note - Binti

There’s a actor’s and writer’s strike going on in Hollywood, and SAG-AFTRA recently clarified their guidelines on fan podcasts. We support the strike, and while the unions have not called for a general boycott, they’ve requested that folks not promote “struck work.” That includes Star Trek, and we want to abide by that request.

Lucy and Melissa have been out of town for the end of July, so only Gregory was available to record a replacement episode. As a result, we’re delaying our already-recorded-and-edited premiere episode discussing Star Trek: First Contact and we’ll instead be reading and discussing the novella Binti by Nnedi Okorafor on our first released episode at the start of September.

You don’t have to read the book to listen, but if you want to, you can get either the novella Binti or the omnibus Binti: The Complete Trilogy wherever you want to get books. Note that Binti: Home and Binti: The Night Masquerade are sequel books; those are included in the trilogy, but make sure not to get one of them alone instead of the first book, which is just Binti.

If you have any questions, you can hail us at onscreen@beforethefuture.space, contact us on social media, or comment on our website at beforethefuture.space.
