Great new Star Trek Podcast
This is a great show. I have had no issues with audio quality. I would not let one okay review stop you from checking out their podcast.
Horrible Audio Quality
The show itself is decent but the audio quality is terrible, especially the most recent episode as of this review.
Exactly What I Was Looking For!
Went looking for a podcast for coverage of the upcoming series. 100% satisfied! Listening to all the past episodes and can't wait for more!
