Thank you all so much for the support I have received after sharing my Lyme story. On days where it hurts too much to move, it is heartening to know that something positive is coming from my experiences. To make sharing this simpler, I am re-posting both episodes in a single blog entry. Over the course of these two podcast episodes I detail 23 years of diagnostic confusion before discovering Lyme, the difficulty in receiving treatment, the controversy surrounding Lyme tests and what it is like to live with chronic pain.

This morning it was announced that CBS has filed a lawsuit against the Star Trek fan film Axanar, trying to force them to cease production. Up until this point, CBS has always turned a blind eye to fan productions, as they are usually produced via crowd funding and released for free. Fan films have become a thriving creative outlet, and it is extremely important that CBS not be allowed to curtail the artistic output of passionate individuals. This lawsuit has enormous implications for the future of fan films as a whole. I encourage you to sign this petition, showing our solidarity for fan films and ensuring they are not blasted into oblivion.

Here it is, folks! I’ve been working on this for months and I’m super pumped to bring you the first episode of SciFi on Trial. We are putting fan reaction to poorly received films on trial, to see if the hatred is justified. It features a panel discussion of whether Star Wars Episode 1 The Phantom Menace is a garbage movie or an unsung pioneer of cinema, hosted by myself, co-hosted by Daniel O’Connell, with Johnny Unicorn, Ryan Casey and Jennifer Krantz. This episode also features witness testimony to the quality of the film from Pete GeeKay, Lindsey Leonard, Albert Kirchner, Kyle Kennedy, Justin Minich, and a featured interview with Joshua Smith. This is only part one of this epic debate, as we try to determine if the film has been remembered fairly. I would love for you to check it out, and if you enjoy the show please subscribe and share.
