As the holiday season comes to a close, we have a special gift for you: a chance to unwrap the new hosts of Earl Grey. We are more than just pretty paper and ribbons; we have a great passion for The Next Generation and Star Trek as a whole.
In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Lee Hutchison, Richard Marquez, and Amy Nelson open themselves up to questions posed in The Babel Conference, our listeners group on Facebook. How would we handle a reboot? What are our top three episodes? Who are our favorite secondary characters? Each question is like a gift waiting to be unwrapped.
We thank you for participating in The Babel Conference, and for making this episode possible. We believe our listeners are the ornaments on the tree that allow our fandom to shine. Enjoy this Q&A wonderland with another cup of Earl Grey.
