151. Star Trek (with John Hunter)

August 22nd, 2016

It's been 50 years since Star Trek first entered the public consciousness, and five decades later, Gene Roddenberry's vision of the future is in surprisingly rude health. With the recent cinematic release of Justin Lin's Star Trek Beyond and slow drip of news about the forthcoming TV show Star Trek: Discovery, Ed sits down to discuss the series' various incarnations with writer and playwright John Hunter. In addition to discussing the strengths and weaknesses of the franchises and the reason for its longevity, they reminisce about drunken conversations about The West Wing, John's work with Slung Low Theatre, and Ed's paralysing fear of being challenged to a rap battle.
