Dan Decker (last seen in Episode 60) comes back to swap some ideas about why fandom affects different people in different ways– starting with very young kids and up through all stages of life. He and I pull from examples such as Ghostbusters, Star Wars: Episode I, Transformers, and of course, Star Trek.
If you’d like the full context for this conversation, here are the earlier installments:
Paige Feldman is a screenwriter, filmmaker, podcaster, and movie aficionado. She has been making a promising effort to bring back the genre of romantic comedy. In this episode, we get to talk about her podcast comedy How to Fall in Love the Hard Way, as well as her upcoming film, Kaleidoscope.
Megan Lloyd is an animation professional and a veteran of Season 2 of Star Trek: Lower Decks. She joins me for this episode of Hungry Trilobyte to talk about how much fun it was to work on Star Trek and how fandom has affected her throughout her life. She and I swap impressions of early seasons of Voyager as well as Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Nick Taber is the head honcho over at NickTaberFitness.com, but also the host of Movie Theater Time Machine. He’s a guy who can use both side of his brain at the exact same time… he’s an expert on how to help average people increase their health, but he’s also a major movie buff. He and I have a great talk about both these topics, and the weird ways in which they intersect.

Kennedy Phillips is a professional Sound Designer, as well as an enthusiast of vintage audio drama and online content creator. He has worked on projects such as Spiders and Arctic. His own projects include the audio drama Magus Elgar, as well as the series Hazbin Hotel and Helluva Boss. In this episode, Kennedy and I discuss the impact that sound engineering has on the dramatic experience, and the different ways that can be presented in film, audio drama, podcasts, and even in real life.
That conversation takes an unexpected turn, when we jump from talking about audio drama to our various feelings on Star Trek: Voyager.
Jeff Dwoskin is a successful stand-up comic and the host of his own podcast, The Jeff Dwoskin Show. In this episode, Jeff and I discuss the concept of writing humor, how stand-up has changed in recent years, and the differences between being creative on stage compared to being creative in a studio.
Tina Marie Trimpert is the host of The Psyche-Delic podcast, a show built on second-guessing our assumptions about the world. Tina and her “panel of non-experts” look at pop psychology, philosophy, and the paranormal with a wide range of perspectives. During our chat, Tina and I compare notes on the differences between discussing science and philosophy, the different tools needed for each, and the motivations someone could have for looking at the intersections between the two. We also start a great chat on where the boundaries lie between the material world and the paranormal.
Jerry Bennett, the first guest everon HungryTrilobyte, returns for episode #50! Jerry and I discuss the challenges of being creative in 2020 and the unique opportunities still around for artists. Jerry has been on an incredible self-improvement regimen, and I make the point that the ‘starving artist’ myth does more harm than good. Speaking of thriving, we discuss how Jerry was a guest at the OK Art Crawl, an art show for the socially distanced. I brag on some awesome open-source creative apps like GIMP, LibreOffice, and Ubuntu Studio. Jerry sings the praises of Procreate.
Michael Ehmcke and Derrick Nadeau are a dynamic duo in the realm of podcasting. Basing their series of shows off their site webegeeks.net, the two crank out episodes of Wookiee Radio and Mighty Marvel Geeks, with a great team of other podcasters joining them. We Be Geeks also offers their own Podcast Collective, pooling the resources of other like-minded shows. In this episode, we talk about how podcasts help connect people who otherwise might not have a conduit to friends with the same interests.
