"Weird Al" Yankovic and Adam Nimoy will serve as the first two guests on Engage: The Official Star Trek Podcast, which will be hosted by noted journalist/critic Jordan Hoffman and is set to debut June 15 on the podcast platform Play.it. The first three episodes of the hour-long podcast -- from CBS Radio, CBS Local Digital Media and CBS Consumer Products -- will be available on the 15th via Play.it/StarTrek, iTunes and StarTrek.com, with new episodes to be released weekly starting on June 22.

Engage: The Official Star Trek Podcast, created with both longtime and new fans in mind, will celebrate one of the most iconic franchises in entertainment and pop culture history. Hoffman, who pens StarTrek.com's recurring One Trek Mind column, will interact with enthusiasts, interview guests and debate the minutiae of the 50-year-old fictional universe.

“Star Trek is more than just a collection of television shows, films, books, comics and toys for me – it is one of the great loves of my life.  It’s a relationship that has evolved over time and has created true, lasting connections,” Hoffman said in a statement. “There’s nothing I like more than meeting someone who might be Trek-curious and guiding them toward full-fledged devotion. I want this show to 'engage' with the hardcore and the neophyte alike. It’s a big galaxy out there.”
Listeners can engage with Hoffman on the official Facebook page of the podcast and on Twitter @jhoffman.
