HTP Episode 100 – Larry Nemecek

8AAAB59F-17A8-4521-9BF9-5406DD8B4A7C

 

Larry Nemecek has been around the Star Trek fandom in so many capacities… as a writer, editor, podcaster, and even as McCoy himself in Star Trek Continues.  In this episode of Hungry Trilobyte, we’re excited for the premiere of the second season of Lower Decks and amused by the joke about the Tom Paris collector’s plate… which made us remember the Collectible Plate fad of the 80s and 90s.  

That spins into a slightly deeper discussion of how fan trends come and go, and how generations of fans sometimes look at the same concepts very differently.  

Be sure to tune in to Larry’s podcast Portal 47 .  You can also follow him on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube, and find all his info on his official website.

His most recent campaign has secured 1921’s Straight is the Way.

Peter David is an extremely talented author, writing for many great franchises such as Star Trek, X-Men, Superman, Babylon 5, and many other worlds he created.  Peter is also a long-time fan of science fiction, and has a great perspective on how fandom changed from the early days of conventions though today.  In this episode, he and I have a great talk that includes the transition between Star Trek: TOS and Star Trek: TNG, and how the Vietnam War made for a different perspective between the two shows.  We also reflect on rivalries between fandoms, how it’s often an illusion, but also ways in which those rivalries can be very real.

You may have started to get hungry during our discussion of ribs and rib parties… if so, the Atlanta-based rib place we were discussing is Fat Matt’s Rib Shack . Fried chicken can be found at The Colonnade.

If you’d like to check out some of his books, consider starting with Q-Squared, Imzadi, or Pulling Up Stakes.  You’d also do well to check out his independently-published books at Crazy 8 Press, a writing consortium.

HTP Episode 083 – Kieren McCarthy

 

Kieren McCarthy is a journalist on staff at The Register, and was one of the few writers to voice concerns over Atari’s latest console attempt.  Kieren’s skepticism escalated considerably when he met with the Atari team in person at GDC, and detailed his misgivings in the now-famous article ‘We sent a vulture to find the relaunced Atari Box – and all he got was this lousy baseball cap’.  Atari responded by claiming Kieren made up the story, despite there being a recording of the meeting.  

In this episode of Hungry Trilobyte, Kieren and I discuss why critical thinking seems to be lacking when it comes to video-game-centric discussion, and areas where Atari could have actually released a better product, had they had a mind to.

You can follow Kieren’s journalism on Twitter, or his personal account, if you’d like.  He also maintains a website, kierenmccarthy.com.  In addition to those, his main social media, Kieren maintains a Facebook account as well.
