Happy 4th of July! To celebrate, the Fire & Water Network has arranged a study in imperialism, as Canadian Siskoid and American Cory Drew compare and contrast their two favorite shows, Star Trek and Doctor Who! Is each a product of its own specific empire? They go in deep, discussing the shows’ attitudes towards authority, individualism, professionalism, interventionism, and even the controversial chair agenda! Fireworks incoming!
