A podcast about Star Trek: The Next Generation for some reason

January 7, 2020

Episode 38 - An Android, Puffy and Painting

Megan and Charlie are back to put a bow on our TNG-centric format (for now). We wrap up all unfinished Next Gen business and boldly look forward to the January 23rd premiere of Picard. All that plus a TON of nonsense when you Set Phasers to Fun!

Episode 37 - Trade Your Bones For Dollars, Kids!

Megan and Charlie are back, just like Jean-Luc Picard. In this already outdated episode, your hosts discuss the Picard teaser trailer, but we recorded well before the newest trailer dropped. We sort of discuss the trailer, and so much more. All that and more corn nonsense from Megan when you Set Phasers to Fun!

Episode 36 - Igloo Iguana, Random Coincidence

Megan and Charlie return to the podwaves with another extremely well-informed, insightful, and elegant episode. Get your classic 3 C's of entertainment: childbirth, character arcs, and corn, only when you Set Phasers to Fun!

Episode 35 - Your Inner Super Nerd, Being Super Nerdy

After a bit of a break, your humble hosts return with a lot of cutting insights into mothers, yoga, nerds, Wesley Crusher, and a lot of other things. You might learn something about Star Trek the Next Generation, but you will definitely learn something about yourself when you Set Phasers to Fun!

Episode 34 - Picard and Riker, Hot & Husky


June 11, 2018

Episode 33 - The Enterprise: A Big Circle with a Porch

After a little break, your hosts are back in action and ready to entertain you, sort of. We get to hear a new episode of TNG thanks to the good folks at Botnik, we talk about deaths on the show, and Megan really ups the corn smut quotient on this episode's Corn Report. All that, listener mail, and more when you Set Phasers to Fun!

Episode 32 - Hal Holbrook, Asking For More Money.

We're back with a ton of surprises in store, including a distinct lack of ear-splitting Megan-cackles. We follow up on some unifinished Riker/Riker/Trombone Business, answer questions from the Admirals Club, and debut a new piece of fan art. All this and more when you Set Phasers to Fun!

Episode 31 - Deanna, with a Yak Trimmed Djembe Drum

We're back with very special guest and SPTF composer Tony Thaxton. We talk about music on TNG. If you'd like an indication of how this episode went, there's a six minute monologue about Mike Oldfield's prog rock masterpiece Amarok on the cutting room floor.

Episode 30 - Admiral Softpants, Gnawing on a Turkey Leg

We're back with the most disjointed and production value heavy epsiode yet! Our old pal Tony Thaxton has some surprises in store for us this week as we dive into corn bobbing, listener mail, and the Admiral's Club. All this and more when you Set Phasers to Fun!
