Last week I participated in a recording of the first Secrets of Star Trek podcast for SQPN. Together with Father Roderick, Steve Nelson, Mike Kuypers and Maria Johnson, I spoke about such topics as leadership as depicted in the various Star Trek series. It’s a bit heavy on the original series and The Next Generation, of which I know a bit less than the other series, but it’s fun nonetheless.
The ‘Secrets of…’ format is an easy way to discuss and hear about various topics. Fr Roderick has used it successfully to go into the Harry Potter books, the Star Wars films, the Lord of the Rings et cetera.
While SQPN is a Catholic new media network, the podcasts in these series are not exclusively Catholic (whatever that would mean), but do go into topics which we also find in faith and the life of the Church. It’s a low threshold to get introduced to these topics and the TV series itself.
