There won’t be a new episode of the podcast this month, as Casey and Mike are taking a short break for the holidays…but they want you to join them!
That’s right! We’re hosting what we hope will be a new annual holiday tradition by the 24th Century! We’re hosting a little holiday get-together in honor of Captain Picard Day!
If you’re in the Seattle-Tacoma area, come meet the Radio vs. the Martians! guys and join us in raising our glasses to one of Starfleet’s finest commanding officers, the player of one mean flute, and role model to children everywhere!
We’ll eat! We’ll drink! We’ll use salty language! We’ll talk endlessly about nerdy stuff and do Patrick Stewart impressions!
Mike and Casey reserve a table in Ten Forward and share a pot of “tea, early grey, hot” with Greg Hatcher of Comic Book Resources’ Comics Should Be Good! blog and game designer Ryan Chaddock. Our continuing mission: to launch a class-5 probe into the Neutral Zone, and to discuss the classic science fiction series, Star Trek: the Next Generation.
We discuss how it added to the Trek mythos, the tug of war over the show’s themes and writing, and how the classic series stands the test of times as a piece of optimistic science fiction in a current age of popular dystopias and the “grim and gritty” storytelling in genre film and television.
