Sometimes you just want to have some fun and geek out with your friends and that’s precisely the motivation for this podcast about the music of Star Trek. It features four of my friends, each from different segments of the classical music field, getting together and geeking out about the music of Star Trek.
That’s really all there is to it and I couldn’t be happier with the result (technical difficulties and all). Everyone got along marvelously, and it felt like we had been friends for years. After listening, I hope you feel like one of the gang as well.
Before jumping into it, I have one request: if you enjoyed the program please take a moment to reach out and let us know on Facebook or Twitter and thank you in advance for sending your friends a link to the program.
The more positive feedback we get, the more likely we’ll be able to secure some funding to license the actual sound files to include in future episodes. It’s important to support the composers, musicians, audio engineers, and the related crew involved in creating the music of Star Trek we love so much.
Oh, and this is definitely NSFW so, you know, fair warning…
