If-then-else ,

I don’t even watch regular Star Trek but I…

Fun show, have me laughing the whole time. Quirky and did say funny? Yes, that and silly, the perfect invention!

This show is my best friend

I’ve listened to the Sisyphus at least seven times all the way through. I discovered on stitcher. Planning to do my next listen along on this app y’all. Improvised Star Trek is like the greatest show. I cannot find anything better, well... “there is no such thing as better, only different”

Micr0chasm ,

Just fun

I found improvised Startrek from Magic Tavern. It’s similarly just a good natured and fun experience to listen to. Its nice, funny background to your day.
