Welcome to TalkinTrek

The Podcast that goes boldly where we aren't quite sure!


Or any time we want for that matter...

The periodic podcast that may not break new ground where Star Trek folklore is concerned but we will have fun.

Standard disclaimer: 1 We are not doing this for fame or fortune just for fun. 2 We don't claim to be Star Trek experts, but we love talking about it.

"Oh my! I'm listening right now. This is podcast gold!"
