Really smart show

Love this podcast, glad to have found it. Really well done, they do their homework and have insights I never would’ve thought of.

Entertaining and well organized!

I like the way they give a detailed plot summary, and break things down and discuss them in a very organized manner. I also like the dynamic between the two hosts, with one being able to ask questions that more casual viewers might have, and one having a very detailed knowledge of not only Star Trek, but writing stories in general.

Best all-around Star Trek Discovery podcast!

When it comes to TV series which I especially care about (e.g. "Game of Thrones," "Westworld," "Twin Peaks") I like to find a companion podcast to add to my enjoyment from episode to episode. I hate network TV aftershows, I feel like those hosts/guests are glorified promo mouthpieces; so "AfterTrek" was a non-option for me. I'm a lifelong Trekker, and even if "Star Trek: Discovery" sucked (which is doesn't, thank the Prophets) I wanted honest discussion - from two or three hosts unconnected to the show's production who will hyperanalyze what we've all just watched, and do it in an entertaining way. After sampling a few STD podcasts, I found the one for me: LOWER DECKS! Glenn and Valerie are the perfect hosts for this. It's like having a cozy chat with your Trek nerd friends who also happen to know a helluva lot about story structure and the relevant pop culture which often inspires ST showrunners. And they make cocktails based on STD episodes. And they play Smooch/Marry/Kill with the characters. But mostly they discuss the show! - and they do it great :D
