In the ongoing effort to resist the resistance, KMO talks with Doug, a long-time friend of the C-Realm and someone who works in tech and is gay. Doug spends most of his time in Bellows Falls, VT but travels back to NYC multiple times a year. Moving between these two worlds gives him an interesting perspective. Doug was a passionate supporter of Bernie Sanders in the 2016 presidential election, and his lack of enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton has cost him a few friendships. KMO talks a bit about how Amazon.com is using the marketing of their show, The Man in the High Castle, to present themselves as the defenders of America against literal Nazis. And what is the new animated Star Wars TV show called? Resistance. Groan.
KMO and Doug Lain talk about the cultural and political struggle on display in the drama around the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation process. Doug argues the pro-Democrat side pretty effectively but fears that his efforts would be judged wanting by his leftist superego. Later, the topic turns to Star Trek: Enterprise, a show that met an early demise in 2005 but which KMO remembers fondly and Doug is currently enjoying on Netflix.
