Star Trek Podcast, Part 1

So, due to my, some would say obsessive (I'd just call it unusual... or embarrassing), depth of knowledge on the subject of Star Trek I've been making the rounds on the intertubes. If you frequent some of the same blogs I do, then you've probably seen my name in the comments sections. But the sheer geeky fun of being a guest on the Monster Sci Fi Show podcast has been unmatched. My host, Monster, brings his fanboy perspective. His co-host, Mr. Gene, brought the business angle into the mix. So I served as counterpoint, bringing the Trek purist's viewpoint. Do I love this film? Yes, indeed I do. But I still find a lot to nitpick, as you'll soon hear... More Star Trek coverage: First Look: J.J. Abrams' Star Trek J.J.

Awesome. I very much enjoyed this podcast, and I'm glad you posted it for us to hear. It's also nice to get a new angle into your film criticism, which remains consistent between form but which flows nicely in a new format of a real-time conversation.

I did one of these back in February around the Oscars for a friend of mine, but things sort of derailed inside the hour and it was a little too ... shall we say ... profane for a professional blog. Oh well. Maybe I'll get something up and we'll all find out what we all sound like.

Thanks T.S.,

I was afraid no one had listened to it because of my Star Trek overindulgence in this forum.

I have been toying with the idea of doing my own podcast, and inviting some of my favorite critics and bloggers as guests. If I muster up the courage, you'll be first on my list.
