A new weekly Star Trek podcast hosted by journalist/critic Jordan Hoffman will make its debut on June 15.
The podcast will be called Engage: The Official Star Trek Podcast.
The first two guests for the podcast will be “Weird Al” Yankovic and Adam Nimoy.
Engage will “celebrate one of the most iconic franchises in entertainment and pop culture history. Hoffman, who pens StarTrek.com‘s recurring One Trek Mind column, will interact with enthusiasts, interview guests and debate the minutiae of the fifty-year-old fictional universe.”
“Star Trek is more than just a collection of television shows, films, books, comics and toys for me,” said Hoffman. “It is one of the great loves of my life. It’s a relationship that has evolved over time and has created true, lasting connections. There’s nothing I like more than meeting someone who might be Trek-curious and guiding them toward full-fledged devotion. I want this show to ‘engage’ with the hardcore and the neophyte alike. It’s a big galaxy out there.”
