    NIMOY'S PREVIOUS FRONTIER

    Now that we've talked about Leonard Nimoy as host of IN SEARCH OF..., it's finally time for the IMMP to discuss the dramatic action-adventure series whose ensemble included Leonard Nimoy, years earlier. It premiered in 1966, and while it had fans from the very start it exploded in popularity in the years that followed. It came back in the 1980s with a revival series, and also gave rise to a long-running movie franchise.

DubVSon ,

Great podcast

I stumbled across this podcast and saw the Stop Making Sense episodes. Talking Heads are one of my favorite bands, and that album/movie both went through hundreds of replays during college for me too. It was very cool to hear someone familiar remember the aspects that he loved, and someone new explain the things that resonated for the first time. Matt and Ian’s back and forth is both humorous and informative while always entertaining. Looking forward to diving into more episodes!

It's alright; I'm a doctor. ,

Ok but gaps in audio

Please adjust the noise gate or other automatic ducking. The first word from each speaker is sometimes missing. Listen to one of your recordings to hear this.
