The DenPod [September 2021, Part 1]

After experimenting with the format, I ultimately decided not to pursue the podcast or audio article format any further. As a result, you won’t find the episode(s) discussed below, nor will any of the links work.

Welcome or welcome back to the DenPod! If you’re new around these parts, the DenPod is my unscripted podcast. I talk about Star Trek, gaming, and other geekdom and entertainment topics, and this is the episode for the first half of September 2021.

After the last episode of the DenPod suffered from audio problems as a result of the microphone not being properly set up, I think I’ve managed to fix that particular issue. This episode sounds a lot better (to me, anyway!) and I’ll try to keep that in mind going forward so we don’t see a repeat of what happened last time.

Coming just 24 hours before Star Trek Day, and potentially a few big Star Trek news stories are up for discussion, it might seem odd timing. But I’m planning to keep the rest of the week clear for Star Trek Day news and my review of the next episode of Lower Decks – and having put off recording this episode for a few days already it was now or never!

Star Trek Day will soon be upon us… but listen to the DenPod first!

The DenPod is, disappointingly, still not available via Apple Podcasts – and I have no idea if or when that will change. Apple have said they’re “reviewing” my submission, but that was several weeks ago and I’ve had no further updates. I’d love to get on Apple Podcasts… but watch this space! You can, however, find the DenPod on the following apps and websites:

  • Anchor
  • Breaker
  • Google Podcasts
  • Pocket Casts
  • RadioPublic
  • Spotify
  • and YouTube!

Of course you can also listen right here on the website – just click or tap the embedded video below. If you do decide to listen via YouTube, feel free to subscribe to my YouTube channel as well – if you turn on notifications you’ll be alerted when future episodes go live.

Highlights of this edition of the DenPod include:

  • Star Trek Day predictions
  • Picard Season 2… and Season 3
  • Lower Decks Season 2
  • Prodigy and the USS Protostar
  • The Borg
  • The Burn
  • The PlayStation 5 downgrade controvery
  • Starfield
  • A rumoured Star Wars spin-off
  • …and much more!

So that’s about all I have to say, really. This episode clocks in just shy of the one-hour mark, so you might want to pour yourself a drink and grab a snack before you settle in.

Happy listening!
