Learn Why Fans Love Star Trek

TrekProfiles is a greasy podcast. Each month (sometimes more frequently!) John hosts a Star Trek fan to discuss why they love the franchise. There have been loads of interesting stories from a lot of interesting people so far. It’ll make you think and it’ll also help deepen your own love and appreciation for the Star Trek franchise. Highly recommended!

Fantastic Format

I’ve loved this show since episode 1. Thought of a similar show years ago and just never went anywhere with it. So glad John had the same idea and is making it work far beyond what I ever could have done! Great interview skills that take it from just question and answer format to a conversation!
