BHSLjw5CAAEQD3Z.jpg-largeThis isn’t one of those self- serving plugs, honestly. It’s just we don’t have that much to say today, otherwise this wouldn’t even be worth mentioning. When Alex, James and Andrew aren’t chatting on The Garbage Podcast they can occasionally be found talking Star Trek: The Next Generation on a podcast called First Contact. While it’s usually a TNG Introcast, they recently took the time out to talk about Star Trek Into Darkness for a spoiler filled review.
