    Charting the Course - Star Trek: Voyager Season 3

    It's time to turn the page and begin our fly over journey through season 3 of Star Trek: Voyager.  But which episodes will we stop and watch and which ones will we glide over?  That's what this episode is about.  And joining Brent this week, (cause Matt's not allowed to), is Phil Routh from the Nerd Trek Podcast.  Together they will venture out ahead to see what's to come on Beam Me Up.

    If you're watching with us, the next episode will be from Star Trek: Voyager Season Three: The Swarm (Brent changed his mind again.)

Engaging and Fun

This is one of the most engaging and fun podcasts I’ve ever heard. Love it.

High quality, fun, and dynamic podcast for all

This podcast is a main contributor to my interest in Star Trek. I had mental blocks against the show for decades. (I planted my flag on the Star Wars hill. 💁🏻‍♀️) Eventually, I opened my mind a bit and was interested in seeking out shows and podcasts that lead to reflection on the philosophy of morality, and just the different philosophical complexities of life. I ended up listening to one of the early episodes of this podcast, which then prompted me to watch the corresponding TOS episode. I realized Trek is the epitome of what I was looking for and I was a silly goose for pushing back against it for so long. But, would I have gotten there without this podcast? Well, maybe, but it probably would have taken a lot longer. Thanks a ton to Brent and Matt for giving free hours (and hours and hours) of their lives to put out a quality product. The production and sound quality is exceptional! Their chemistry on the show is great. And it’s fun to have the dynamic of Matt who, like me, is previously unfamiliar with Trek versus Brent who has seen all the episodes and shows multiple times. Regardless of where you are in your own Trek journey, this is *the* Trek podcast for you! Highly recommend, 5 out of 5 stars.

Great Quality, Great Content

I haven't seen most of the episodes they cover, but they make me want to go and watch them so I can feel a part of the conversation. The audio quality of this show is great, and the hosts are entertaining. They go so in-depth as to why each episode is so meaningful to the franchise and make a great case as to why this is such a cultural phenomenon. It's fun to hear the opinions and observations of a first-time watcher, too! Overall, a great podcast for Trekkies as well as new fans who want to watch each episode and follow along.
