We love Leonard Nimoy. This is a belated, though ever-relevant appreciation. We talk about his passing and how he moved us all powerfully for different reasons. As Star Trek and the Spock character feel like foundations from our youth, we consider people, media, and experiences that, when inevitably changed, have or will affect us deeply. BTW, Game of Thrones Spoiler Alert: If you are as behind in your viewing as is Audacious Mary, tune out from 16:30 to 17:45.

Anger can be a useful emotion – but when does it serve to undermine social progress and human connection? In this episode, we discuss how anger can hijack otherwise positive actions in the LGBT, racial justice, and other political movements. We consider ways white activists and concerned citizens can take part in #blacklivesmatter. We recognize the challenges in, yet importance of educating the ill-informed about the Pagan community. Can we avoid hurting each other, and our causes, when we are struggling on the same side of an issue? Can substantive social change occur without anger and violence boiling over?
