STDP 040 – Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2 (S2E14, 2 of 3)

It’s episode 40 of The Star Trek Discovery Podcast, and Ruthie and Brian continue their analysis and discuss your feedback for Star Trek: Discovery – S2E14, which is titled Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2; this time, focussing on No’s and Hold Your Horses. This episode was written by Michelle Paradise & Jenny Lumet & Alex Kurtzman, and directed by Olatunde Osunsanmi.
