I concur that Gene’s long involvement in the field is of tremendous value and interest. His relationships with old school researchers and “characters” in the field are impressive and are of exceptional value to the quality of the show. The perspective and context this gives him, and that he subsequently shares on the show, separate him from every other radio/podcast host out there.Personally, I like sci-fi and pop-culture parallels and references. It can be fun so long as it's appropriately inserted and relevant to the topic at hand rather than derailing the discussion. I also like the fact that you have personal history dating back to the Early Modern Era. It's not something everyone, particularly the next generation can offer. I don't even mind your sense of humor. So take all that criticism with a meteoroid sized grain of salt. But I do like the idea of putting together some value added content though. Let's talk about that again when we get a chance.
I provide my comments as constructive criticism only. I consider Gene a friend and have mad respect for him. It’s because of this, I feel comfortable breaking his balls over his corny quips and predictable Star Trek references.
