Brandon is a terrific host and knowledgeable to boot. If you enjoy music and Trek, or even just music in general and the stories behind how those pieces came to life, this is absolutely a show you need to put in your regular rotation.

I've been a lifelong Star Trek fan, but Brandon has brought a whole new dimension (pardon the pun) to my fandom. In the past, I've paid little attention to the music, other than the iconic themes, of course. The tunes in the background were just that, background to the action. But through this...Read full review »

In the 50 years Star Trek has been around, it has brought us some very inconic soundtracks. Melodic Treks is dedicated to the music of Star Trek. You don't just get to hear great music, but learn some of the backstory behind the tracks as well.

Having been a music lover my whole life and also a Trekkie my whole life, this show is (pardon the pun)the best of both worlds! :P Right from my early days as a Trekkie, alot of the music always grabbed me, so when I could start affording them, I was getting as many of the soundtracks as I...Read full review »

Brandon does a great job researching Trek music and discussing it intelligently, despite not having a background in music. His episodes are always interesting and entertaining and he gets great guests! If you love Star Trek music, or even just music in general, this one's for you!

First up this series of podcasts gets an automatic five star review. Why? Beacuse it is original, fresh and downright great listening. Since Brandon Shea-Mutala took over as the main anchor on this fascinating(!) Star Trek podcast it has gone from strength to strength. Brandon does a terric job...Read full review »

It took me a while to get into Melodic Treks as the format is different from most of the podcasts, the best of which succeed on the strength of the relationships between co-hosts - complete with running jokes, friendly bickering and so on. Here we have just one host - albeit often joined...Read full review »

A great podcast about the music and composers of Star Trek. Some great interviews and insight. To an outsider it seems that this could only appeal to Trek fans, but I think anyone interested in orchestral music or soundtracks would enjoy it.
jscardina via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/03/16
I really do love this podcast about the music of Star Trek. I started listening when Colin was hosting but Brandon has now taken over the reigns and we have interviews with composers and other people involved with Star Treks music along with lots of clips of the music (which is what I love the...Read full review »

I recently discovered Melodic Treks on the network. Brandon-Hea Mutala does an outstanding job pulling together episodes that explore a particular theme or series.

Hi, just writing a quick line to thank Brandon for the amazing work he's done so far on Melodic Trek, my second favorite podcast on Trek.Fm. Brandon combines his deep knowledge of Trek & passion for film scoring with an "every day man" approach to the subject, which makes the content he creates...Read full review »

With the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek in 2016, I looked for new ways to expand and celebrate my fandom. I discovered the network a little late, but am now an avid listener.

What is fun about this show is that the show gets into the history of each individual score, the episode that the music was scored for, and all the other odd assorted tid bits. Even stuff from bad episodes--I'm looking at you, "The Way To Eden" and "Spock's Brain" sounds very nice when the music...Read full review »

As an amateur musician and life-long Trekkie, I look forward to this podcast every week! Fun trivia, fascinating guests, and of course incredible music from all five Star Trek series and all the movies! 🖖

This is a fantastic podcast for those who not only love Star Trek, but also those who love the music of Star Trek... Colin first introduced us to the music and different composers...

Great interviews, excellent music, intersting topics! Great stuff all around!

Melodic Treks discusses the aspects of music in Trek, and it is great! Brandon Mutala has taken the center seat (or first seat for you musicians), and has really gotten off to a strong start! I highly recommend that you give this a listen!
Coachd23 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/24/16
Glad to see this show back. Brandon is doing a great job. Hope to hear many more quality episodes!!
Irishtrekfan via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 04/12/16
Brandon-Shea Mutala has a great radio voice. This show has fantastic production value as well as pacing. Which you would want in a podcast about music. If you’re a Trek fan or even just a music fan, you need to listen.
triddell24 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/16
It's not everyday you discover a Star Trek podcast that focuses on the music. Music is one of the more underrated facets of any movie or TV show and this podcast has really done a terrific job introducing the creative minds behind the music and what their backstory was. I'm looking forward to...Read full review »

This show also has a new host, and the show has been rebooted. I really enjoy the discussion about the music of Star Trek. Also be sure to check out the interview with Ron Jones, one of the composers on Star Trek The Next Generation
cbspock via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/21/16
I enjoyed listening to this show when Colin was the host. But now that they have replaced him its not the same. I know Colin still podcasts, but not on Trek fm. I hope his returns to Star Trek podcasting soon. The new guy is "flat." and the small details that Colin used to add are simply not...Read full review »

DJ Shea via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/28/16
Terrific classical Star Trek music combined with a narrator with a soothing voice. I feel like I'm listening to my grandmother's favorite classical music station with Trek music. Great insight on the composers who help bring Star Trek characters to life. Keep it up!
Joshua Eves via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/14/14
I'm happy to have discovered Melodic Treks via my love for the To The Journey podcast. Can't wait to hear Charlynn and Tristan sing their way to a show!

Everything you wanted to know about music from Star Trek. I've always wondered about all that music, now I know. Thank you for a great podcast.

I've been listening to some of TrekFM's podcasts since early last year. I listen to them while I'm driving on my way to and from school. I find myself so engrossed in the conversation, and I wish I was there! The people who work on this podcast are real Trekkies/Trekkers too, making the...Read full review »

I think even my 3rd cousin's pet turtle does a Trek podcast now. However, thanks to Colin and for finally making a Trek podcast that is the definition of unique! Being a musician, I absolutely LOVE this podcast. It's one of the most well rounded shows I listen too. You not only get to...Read full review »

I have loved the music of Star Trek since I was a child. This show does a great job of not only sharing more of that music, but provides a lot of great insights into the music that I have not previously been exposed to. Really informative.
PhasersToWelsby via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/02/14

Colin does a wonderful job of making this podcast more than just a love letter to Trek music. His explores the origin of all Trek music, which can be a rabbit hole for all music lovers. This shows that Trek music is not composed in a vacuum (of space). Great job!
captsfufp via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/11/14
Not alot to say about this show except its Fracking awesome.
CaptmackSG1 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/08/14
Another great podcast from Colin exploring the much loved but often ignored music of Trek. Well researched and presented, I'm hoping there will be a podcast on the music of First Contact & the Motion Picture which both have great soundtracks
Marc Stamper via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/20/14
Thanks Colin so much for Melodic Treks. I’m not very musical but I’ve always loved the music of Star Trek.

I know there are some who...Read full review »

Colin really is a podcast legend. He sets the bar that everyone who wants to podcast should aim for. Music can either make or break a film or television show and this is the case with Star Trek.
