It is truly a pleasure to see you again Trolley riders, I have been remiss in my blogging, and hope you aren’t too upset at the delay. But today we are rolling down the tracks again, and I have great news to share. As you can see, I am involved in a new adventure – I am co-host of “The G&T Show” – an internet radio show focusing on the world of Star Trek, with an emphasis on the novels.
My co-host is one of the most wonderful ladies it has been my pleasure to have grace my life, Terri Lynn Shull. Teri and I share a mutual love of Trek lit, and Trek itself, as well as comics and film. We also are as opposite as two people can be when it comes to so many topics I cannot begin to explain, but never once in a debate or conversation with her have I ever ended the day remotely mad or upset with her, and I can dare say, the same is true for her.
That is what makes us teaming for this venture such a great fit, we are alike and different, and we share a mutual love and respect that the audience will hear. So here is where you come in Trolley riders! Tune in! As you listen, play the G&T home game…every time Teri or I snort with laughter, take a drink. Keep a tally of any double entendrie you hear, see how many obscure film references you can identify!
Join our family and enjoy Sunday mornings with two people who will make you laugh, entertain you, and maybe even bring you some views on Trek lit, Trek in general and sci-fi that you hadn’t thought of. I KNOW that when we have our discussion about the Star Trek – Deep Space Nine finale many of you will be scratching your head and saying, “Oh wow. Hadn’t thought of that!”
Some more good news, we will have the ability to take calls from listeners, interact and really get some good talk going.
I would totally be remiss if I did not thank young Oliver V. Smith, known by those of us on Twitter as @cerberusfilms, without whom this would not be possible. He is not only one of the most mature and dynamic young people I have ever met, but I am convinced he will be a ruler of the entertainment world one day.
So at 9 a.m. EST June 19, boot up, log on, and share breakfast with Teri and me. I think it will be a wonderful Sunday morning addiction for you.
Thanks for reading. And as always, thanks for riding the Bitter Trolley, and please, remember us for your future travels.
