STPC 018 – Patreon Call-in 8/1/2020
Patreon Call-in Show – Star Trek: Lower Decks & SDCC 2020 Virtual-Con
We’re back with another call-in show that discusses a lot of stuff, including Star Trek: Lower Decks, Star Trek: Picard, Star Trek: Discovery, SDCC 2020, and other streaming services. This call-in show held on August 1, 2020, for our Patreon subscribers. Joining Ruthie and me are Kyle McAdams from The Walking Dead Talk Through, Laurence Todd, Kim Voegele, Arend Mayes, Geoff Gentry, and Jim Matthews.
About Lower Decks… Welcome Kyle!!!
You may remember from our episode covering the two animated Short Treks, Ruthie is not a fan of animation, so she’s sitting out the episodes that cover Star Trek: Lower Decks. Kyle McAdams, who’s been hosting Fear the Walking Dead Talk Through since Season 3, will be taking over co-hosting duties for Lower Decks. Kyle’s been a Star Trek fan We may need to occasionally bring on guests, especially near the end of the season and the beginning of Discovery.
SDCC 2020 News
The big SDCC 2020 Virtual-Con was held last week, and we discuss everything mentioned. There wasn’t much from Discovery, which was disappointing, although the finale read through was interesting. Picard was entertaining. We got that the Nickelodeon show will be called Star Trek: Prodigy, but the biggest thing we got was Star Trek: Lower Decks. We met the actors for the first time, and got an extended scene.
Ruthie will return for Discovery Season 3!
Ruthie will be returning on The Star Trek Discovery Podcast for Season 3 Episode 1 when it airs October 15th. You may go through some Ruthie withdrawal until then.
