Meet the hosts.
Welcome to The Edge, Trek.fm’s new podcast all about Star Trek: Discovery!
It’s been twelve years since Star Trek left television, but the wait for new voyages is almost over. As anticipation builds, we gather people from around the network—and elsewhere—to examine all things Discovery.
In the premiere episode of our dedicated Star Trek: Discovery podcast, The Edge, we introduce you to our four hosts, Aaron Harvey, Brandon-Shea Mutala, Amy Nelson, and Mike Schindler, who together with many guests, will bring you a wide range of voices that will change week to week. Find out how we became Trek fans, what expectations we have for Discovery, and what you can expect from The Edge.
