Podcast Catch-Up, Pt 3: Starmageddon
I don't think I've actually mentioned this on the blog, but I'm the co-host of a weekly Star Wars/Star Trek podcast called Starmageddon. It's the brainchild of writer Dan Taylor (Hero Happy Hour) who also used to edit Star Trek comics for IDW before returning to writing full time. Dan's a huge nerd for both series and knew that I am too, so we decided to start talking about them regular-like.
I won't be giving updates on when new episodes come out, because... every week. But we've got three episodes up so far and the next one's being edited. You can find them all on the website or through your usual way of listening to podcasts.
After an episode 00 where Dan and I just talked about our history with the shows, we've settled into a format where we use recent news to springboard into other discussions. Should we be getting our hopes up about Star Trek Beyond? Would it be cool to see a live action Ahsoka appear in The Force Awakens? What should a new Star Trek TV series be like? What does "canon" even mean in the Star Wars universe? I'm having a blast hashing this stuff out.
Starting with our next episode, we're also adding guests to the format. Some will be other passionate fans and some will be actual Trek and Wars newsmakers. And sometimes we'll have both in the same episode. I hope you'll give it a try.
