What’s this all about?
Random Trek is a podcast where Scott McNulty and a guest discuss a randomly picked episode of Star Trek.
Random Trek is part of the Incomparable Radio Network.
How do you pick the episodes?
The process begins with the spreadsheet. Included on the spreadsheet are all the live action series (TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY, ENT) and movies (no Animated Series, sorry). Two part episodes count as one entry.
When Scott invites someone onto the show he goes to Random.org and enters a number between 1 and 681. That is the episode to be discussed.
Why do you hate the Animated Series?
I don’t hate it, but it isn’t readily available for streaming, unlike the other 681 entries on the spreadsheet.
How come there’s so much Voyager? Huh? TELL ME!
Because the Universe loves Voyager? Actually, there are just a lot of Voyager episodes. The show did run for 7 seasons, so chances are pretty good that Voyager episodes will turn up often.
How do I get to be a guest on the show?
I’m flattered that people want to be on my little old podcast. I figured no one would want to be on, so having people express an interest without me asking is great!
Generally, I have people on the show who:
- I know, either personally or through their work.
- Are referred to me by people I know.
The things I look for in a guest: someone who is entertaining, has something interesting to say, and has a pretty good mic and can record their end of the conversation. Previous Star Trek knowledge is not required.
Who the heck is Scott McNulty?
He’s the host of the podcast and the “I” in previous answers (plus he typed these very words himself!). For more information about Scott check out his website Blankbaby or follow him on Twitter @blankbaby.
