On this week's show
Jerrica Lala started dabbling in terrestrial radio at the tender age of four as a guest star on her father's Christmas special. When she grew up, she became entrenched in the guts of the theatre (TEE-A-TA) and has directed multiple indie theatre projects that often explore the nature of identity and reality. She's also a massive (literally and figuratively) pop-culture freak. Favourites include Star Trek: TNG, Blade Runner, Avatar (the animated series), Star Wars IV, V, and VI, Jessica Jones, Jem and the Holograms, and Sailor Moon. You can hear Jerrica the first Tuesday of every month on the podcast The Popular Parallax.
