LBR presents Center Seat, a Star Trek podcast

Direct Download (57:08)

Stardate 2020.190. Star Trek was my first fandom, way before comic books, and while I have included Star Trek related material in the podcast feed before, I decided to rebrand those shows as Center Seat, my new Star Trek podcast. This episode I talk about why I love Star Trek and why it matters to me.

Future episodes will include movie and tv series commentary, as well as other topics. I hope you will join me on this strange new adventure. If you like Star Trek, please tell others about this new imprint of the Longbox Review podcast.

2020 is the 10th anniversary of the Longbox Review podcast, and to celebrate, I am spotlighting 10 episodes from the archive. This final retrosode is a rebroadcast of episode 169 from 2019 where I talked with MJ from the Nerd Goggles podcast about her show and then we start discussing the Birds of Prey trade Of Like Minds (the rest of the conversation about this trade is in episode 170, linked below).

Thank you for supporting the podcast over these 10 years.
