Books and Comics Positivity

This is a great show for discussion, interviews, news, and commentary about Star Trek books and comics. The hosts, while always giving their actual takes on the material, try to find the goodness in whatever they review and do not take pleasure in bashing anything. There is a good sense of humor present in the episodes, too.

Finally

I’ve been reading Trek books most of my life and I love that there’s finally a dedicated podcast that looks at both the new and older books from Trek’s history. They have a great format and sometimes we are lucky enough to hear from the authors themselves as they dive into their influences and reasons some of their stories go in the directions that they do. Check them out!

Good TOS and TNG books reviews.

This is a solid podcast with two guys the clearly like Trek and are enjoyable to listen too. My only main issue is they are heavily focused on ToS and TNG books/content. They hardly ever touch on other series like Voyager and DS9. Would be nice if they covered Trek books more broadly.
