At the recent American Humanist Association conference in Chicago, we spoke with John de Lancie, an actor best known for his portrayal of “Q” on Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Star Trek: Voyager.
De Lancie has also appeared on Breaking Bad and The West Wing. In September, he filmed a video for the Openly Secular campaign.
So what happens when two people who have never watched Star Trek get a chance to interview him on extremely short notice? We talk about the current golden age of television, what defines a great actor, and whether we need to use labels like “Humanist” at all.
We’d love to hear your thoughts on the podcast. If you have any suggestions for people we should chat with, please leave them in the comments, too.
