The Untold Story of “Am I Real?”, a Conversation about Star Trek Picard with SCSU Professor Mike Dando

In today’s Untold Story of Central Minnesota, Arts & Cultural Heritage Producer Jeff Carmack talks with SCSU English Professor Mike Dando about a recently published paper from him and some of his colleagues called “Am I Real?: Hybridity, Strategic Multiplicity, and Self-Actualization in Star Trek: Picard.” The paper offers an explanation of what it means to be inclusive, but it uses the age-old premise of science fiction that the best way to talk about something real is to use something unreal to do it.

For a chance to hear an extended interview between Mike and Jeff as they seriously go full nerd on the topic as well as to get a preview of other upcoming papers from Dando and the “Khan Lang Writing Collective” you can find it on our website at under the podcasts and Untold Stories of Central Minnesota tab.
