The Star Trek Picard Cast is a new podcast on Talk Through Media. We will do in-depth discussions about Star Trek: Picard, the new CBS All Access series that is set to premiere on January 23, 2020. It will also be shown on Space and Crave TV in Canada, and Amazon Prime everywhere else. We’re Brian Meloche and Ruthie Rink; we’re two long-time Star Trek fans, especially of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Each episode, we will analyze the story, characters, and the show’s placement both within the Trek universe and the continuation of the life of legendary Federation Captain Jean-Luc Picard. Our listeners are very important to us. Your feedback will be an essential part of this podcast, just like it is on The Star Trek Discovery Podcast now! Thanks for listening!
For Patreon call-in show #5, Brian and Ruthie are joined by Kim Voegele, Laurence Todd, James Robbins, Brian Shiro, and Jim Matthews. We discuss Star Trek: Picard – The Last Best Hope and the Star Trek: Strange New Worlds announcement.
Ruthie & Brian sit down with Uma McCormack, author of Star Trek: Picard – The Last Best Hope and discuss writing the novel, finding the characters’ voices, and other story details from the novel.
