In this episode of The Web of Queer, we review the First Doctor story The Time Meddler, and have a discussion about intersex people.
For the first part, The Time Meddler! What does viewing this tell us about how stories were told 50 years ago? Mikayla finds a new way to cope with the pacing of First Doctor stories, Josh and Jessica debate something possibly overlooked, and Ian ponders the roles the Doctor takes on with his new group of companions.
For our second part, we talk about the “I” in LGBTQIA. Intersex people are often overlooked and misunderstood, and they are vastly more common than many believe. As always, we love to hear back from you, but we especially would like feedback from any intersex listeners on this discussion or how you would like to hear us discuss this topic in the future.
