Hosted by author Duncan Barrett, Primitive Culture is a Star Trek history and culture podcast we co-created in 2017 on the Trek FM networking, looking at the 50+ year old franchise through the lens of our world today.
In this episode, Duncan and I tackle fan service in Star Trek and indeed beyond, how Star Trek: Discovery was compromised by fans finding it difficult to detach from their passion, and the growing idea of fandom losing perspective.
In many ways, this serves as a ‘sequel’ episode to my Discovery discussion last month with Zach Moore on Standard Orbit, so it might be worth heading over and checking that out, then having this for dessert!
You can listen to the episode on Apple Podcasts, your podcast player of choice, or via Soundcloud below.
