Welcome to the second bonus episode of re:Discovery! We recap all of season one – a huge undertaking – and discuss it in depth. We talk Klingon hair (or lack thereof), the identity politics and trauma of the Shenzou and Discovery crews, ponder if Good Lorca still exists and much more. In the second part of the episode we cover the four Short Trek episodes and talk what it all may mean for season two. This episode contains spoilers! So please make sure you watch all covered content before listening. We’ll be back on Tuesday the 22nd of January for our first season two recap! (Which, despite Ben’s mistake, will be after the January 18th premiere, not February 18th. 😂)
Welcome the first episode of re:Discovery – a Star Trek Discovery recapping podcast for people who don’t like recaps. Today we meet our hosts Carla Donnelly and Ben McKenzie and learn about their history of Star Trek and general sci-fi fandom – as well as what you, the listener, can expect from us with re:Discovery over the course of the show’s second season. Episodes will be released every Tuesday throughout Discovery season two.
Welcome to re:Discovery! At the edge of the universe, this podcast begins…on January 8! (That’s on Australian Eastern Daylight Time, so a day in the future for anyone listening on the other side of the international date line).
We’ll drop an episode every Tuesday; the first couple will cover what’s come before, and then we’ll start with the recaps from January 22. That means we’ll be coming out a couple of days before the next episode, so you’ll have plenty of time to make sure you’ve seen the episode we’ll be talking about.
While you’re waiting for us to start, you might be interested in our other podcasts! Carla Donnelly is co-host of Across the Aisle, a performing arts review and discussion podcast with teacher and writer Philip Thiel, which won Best Arts & Entertainment at the 2018 Australian Podcast Awards; and Club Soderbergh, in which she, Maggie Scott and Jessie Scott watch and the films of director Steven Soderbergh. Meanwhile Ben McKenzie co-founded Splendid Chaps Productions with the Doctor Who fiftieth anniversary podcast Splendid Chaps, and currently co-hosts the monthly Terry Pratchett book club podcast Pratchat with writer Elizabeth Flux.
Carla and Ben are hoping to bring the same irreverence, fun, passion and warmth to re:Discovery as they have their previous projects; we hope you’ll come along for the ride!
