Episode 13: Star Trek's The City on the Edge of Forever

Podcast's Log, Pod-date Episode 13, the hosts of Alternative History Podcast are endeavoring on a journey back to 1967, to a time when Beatles ruled the landscape, a King was leading the charge for equality, and a Vulcan graced the small screen. Star Trek's seminal episode, The City on the Edge of Forever, was first broadcast on April 6, 1967 on NBC, long before Star Wars, borderline incestuous sibling relationships, or "Last" Jedi. In this episode Captain Kirk is faced with an unfathomable dilemma, save the woman you love (that he just met like 30 minutes ago) and allow the Nazi's to take over the world, or let her die and leave history intact. We know what Spock would do, but what would you? Brian explains why you shouldn't leave it up to the democratic process when naming a child, and Rodrigo flexes his Star Trek nerd muscles. All this and more in lucky number 13!
