  • Love this podcast and its positive vibes

    What a wonderful way to engage so many talented people. The podcast is inclusive of all topics Star Trek, and individuals of different backgrounds, scientists and non-scientists alike. Listening to it conjures up images of a fertile garden (Star Trek) with thriving plants (host and invited guests) sharing their beautiful colors (thoughts) and reciprocating one another with their delicious fruits (stories). Look forward to many more episodes. 🖖

  • The El-Aurian science listener

    I have listened to more Star Trek podcast episodes than there are Star Trek episodes. This podcast is one of the most positive and definitely the most informative of them all. I managed to catch up with all the episodes (78 + bonus episode) in just over a month, it's that much fun to listen to. Also in every episode you learn something new and interesting about the universe, from the smallest atoms to cells to complex lifeforms to planets, stars and black holes (and Star Trek of course)! more
