Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQcast
About This Show
Excited about a new Star Trek series appearing on the horizon after 12 long years? So were wildly dissimilar Star Trek fans Anita Sarkeesian and Ebony Aster, until they actually sat down and watched the show. Listen to them crack wise every Monday about new episodes of Star Trek Discovery, the latest entry in the long-running franchise. The hosts dissect everything from Vulcan hair decrees to Tribble stunt casting, and try to come up with a compelling reason why the Klingons can’t stay the same from one series to the next. Week by week, Anita will try to sneak in an attempt to convince Ebony to reassess her ranking of Voyager as the 4th most interesting Star Trek property, while Ebony gets distracted by Discovery’s many shiny surfaces.

Two gals talk about Discovery
They analyze and think through the show in a way that's similar to how I do, which I enjoy. They really need some sort of sound mixing, some episodes are difficult to listen to with huge differences in volume. I have to keep adjusting my speakers through the whole episode, and still miss quiet parts. They recap the show Discovery, and explore the story by comparing it to real world situations, analyze production and costuming, talk about the show's consistencies. They don't necessarily dig deeper explore how Discovery fits in the established Star Trek universe, they admit that they're not hardcore fans.
