"Fifty years ago today, Star Trek launched its first “five year mission” on televisions across the country. The Starship Enterprise’s goal, “to explore new worlds… to boldly go where no man has gone before” gave viewers the opportunity to explore new realms; space, time, and the far reaches of human condition. The future, as envisioned by creator Gene Roddenberry, was portrayed as a place of great unity and equality, progress and diversity. According to author and nerd-culture critic Ethan Gilsdorf, that message is needed more than ever in 2016."

D&D 40th anniversary media week continues! I appeared on WGBH twice this week to talk about the importance and impact of Dungeons & Dragons. Once on radio, once on TV.
Um, how terrifying is TV? Not so bad, once you're on camera. And the time just flies.
I'm late to posting this, but I appeared before Xmas on WGBH's Greater Boston back in December.
