Space Science on TV (with Dr. Ingrid Ockert) - Part 1 of 2

Introduction

In this episode I bring you part 1 of my conversation with the incredible Ingrid Ockert.

Dr Ingrid Ockert is a historian of science and media in the 20th century. She holds a PhD from the History of Science Program at Princeton University. Ingrid was the 2018-2019 NASA/HSS History Fellow and is currently serving as a post-doctoral fellow at the Science History Institute.

We had a great conversation about representations of science on TV, and the intersections between Star Trek, geopolitics, and society.
