I was about to get upset that they skipped a week for episode 103 of this FREE podcast until I realized that Matt and his wife just welcomed their baby into the world! Congratulations! Also, this is one of my most favorite podcasts. I love how Matt and Andy just have fun with Star Trek, the sloppiness of the show and with each other. When they have fun I have fun.

GEEK REPLY RE: Transporter Chiefs. My guess is there's probably about 3 shifts per earth day. Chief O'Brian maybe home playing the bag pipes. Was O'Brian even in the show yet?

I love this podcast. Matt and Andy make me laugh so hard, and I'm loving going through tng again with them, even the first two seasons, which when watched alone are painful, but with them are greatly looked forward to.
