Last week, Star Trek: The Pod Directive brought Tig Notaro to the table to talk all things Trek, acting, and humor. This week, a  real life astronaut comes to mic as we welcome Samantha Cristoforetti to the Pod Directive studio.

This week, Tawny and Paul sit down with someone who's been closer to the stars than most people will ever get. You may know Samantha Cristoforetti from her famous Star Trek cosplay on the International Space Station. Calling in from Germany, she talks to our Pod Directive hosts about what it's like to be a fan of Star Trek while also working towards the future of space exploration the show so clearly envisions.
