Crushing Hard on Star Trek: Picard

And yes, that rhymed! Episode 4 of the Nerdy Romantics Podcast is all about #StarTrekPicard. In Part 1, I give some background on the moment I decided to watch and Easter Eggs she found cool from Episode 5 of the newest series in the Star Trek franchise. (Part 1 of 2) (SPOILERS)

Included in the podcast, I nerd out about:

  • the timing between Star Trek The Next Generation (TNG) and the Picard premiere
  • Easter Eggs from Episode 5 of STP
    • The appearance of Icheb (and Seven of Nine, episode 4 and Hugh, episode 3)
    • The Quark Easter Eggs
    • The connection between Seven of Nine and Jean-Luc Picard

Check out this episode and share your favorite Star Trek Picard Easter eggs!

You can find Star Trek Picard on CBS All Access (I’m not paid to endorse them or Star Trek: Picard. I just love the show).

My Journey into Romance audiobooks with Shayla Black and Christian Fox

Why did I want to start a podcast? The idea all started with my Friday Fun Review of More Than Crave You by Shayla Black. Episode 1 goes all in on romance audiobooks. (This episode may contain book spoilers.)

I break down that whole situation plus I talk about:

  • Shayla Black’s More Than Words series in general and this book in particular
  • Connection between Evan and Evan in the freeform TV series Good Trouble
  • The erotic romance audiobook experience
  • My crush on Christian Fox (should I call it that?)
