Welcome, new listeners!

The Post Atomic Horror podcast has taken on a monumental task: to review every official contribution to Star Trek canon, from the original pilot (“The Cage”) to the series finale of Enterprise, then into the as-yet-forthcoming Discovery. As of this writing (fall 2016), we’re past the halfway point of Voyager, putting us at about three quarters of the way to our overall goal. The show releases every week, typically covering two episodes. Often, there are guests. Between seasons, we do “supplemental” episodes to discuss various topics and answer our mail.

Tone-wise, we try to set up camp somewhere between “adoring fanboys” and “relentless hecklers.” We do love Trek, but we’re not afraid to mock it. You’re much more likely to hear a terrible impression of a tertiary character who caught our attention or a lengthy diatribe about shovels and mullets than you are an impassioned discussion about… I don’t know, canon or stardates or whatever. We’re comedians, first and foremost — albeit comedians who love Star Trek.

If you’d like to try a sample episode, we’d recommend this one, covering the TOS episodes “The Doomsday Machine” and “The Apple.” Or this one, covering “The Inner Light” and “Time’s Arrow part 1” (recorded live at the Emerald City Comicon — there’s also video.) These installments both cover one episode we loved and another that we weren’t so fond of. They represent pretty much everything our show is about.

Beyond that… start from the beginning, or jump in with current episodes. And even if you’re not all that into Trek, give us a try. The biggest compliment we’ve received from listeners is that we actually made the series sound fun enough for them to start watching.

Drunken Time Travel – final episode


For several of the past many years, our friends at the Drunken Time Travel podcast (English Gav and Irish Gav) have been reviewing Doctor Who episodes with the same “mocking-yet-loving” approach that we take with Star Trek. Perhaps you remember their appearances in our annual crossover episodes, or perhaps you have listened to their fine show yourownself. God knows we’ve told you to do that enough over the years.

Anywho (get it?), it would seem that our Anglo compadres have been overcome by events and, consequently, have decided to cease production of their fine program. But they’re going out on a high note, and very graciously invited us to join them in a glorious celebration of Doctors 4-8. Enjoy, won’t you? We did.
