Star Trek: Discovery – Season 4 Episode 2 – Anomaly

We’re back!!! Ruthie and Brian talk through Star Trek: Discovery, Season 4 Episode 2, titled Anomaly. This episode was written by Anne Cofell Saunders & Glenise Mullins, and it was directed by executive producer Olatunde Osunsanmi.

We’re sorry that this episode came out so late for regular listeners. Unfortunately, I did not get much time to edit the episode during the week, and there were several edits that were necessary for this one, due to a few connectivity glitches and several interruptions during the course of the recording that I had to fix. Thankfully, the next episode, which is already recorded, had no such issues so, hopefully, that episode will come out sooner.


If you haven’t seen this episode of Star Trek: Discovery, stop right now!!! Go watch it, then come back!!! We’ll be here for you!
