"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.
“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.”
