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.

A Podcast For My People

After so long in the wilderness of being the only person I’ve ever met who was a die-hard fan (or a fan at all!) of the Star Trek novels, finding this podcast was a breath of fresh air and a balm to (what little remains of) my soul. Thank you for showing me I’m not alone, and also thank you for taking the books seriously, but not too seriously that you cannot identify and call out the occasional stinker.
