This show is great! I love Trek but to hear the deep questions that arise in REAL life discussed and applied to the Star Trek universe is unique in my experience and really raises the level at which I can appreciate Trek. The guys also deliver the discussion in an engaging way that is fun to...Read full review »

Meta Treks is far from the most accessible podcast on the network, but there is a lot of interesting content to absorb here. My feeling is that those who have at least a smattering of Philosophy in their educational background will find it easier to get on board with than I did, but the...Read full review »

Just stumbled upon this podcast recently and now I am burning through them like Khan chasing Kirk around perdition's flames! Great insight into the concepts at work behind the many incarnations of ST (I especially appreciate the references to Enterprise...a very often overlooked series that...Read full review »

This is the way Star Trek is meant to be debated! The shows are really a commentary on sociological and philosophical issues of the day! This podcast nails it when talking about those issues in ways the average person understand complex theories! It will truly broaden your understanding and love...Read full review »

Meta Treks with Zachary and Mike is a fascinating show. I've had a range of experiences while listening to Meta Treks ranging from feeling immersed in the Trek universe, feeling as if I'm chatting with friends, and feeling like I'm back in my political philosophy classes at Kansas State...Read full review »
KCTrekieFM via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/17/16
This podcast has become a weekly cannot miss listening experience for me. Mike and Zach do an incredible job of using all fifty years of Trek to illustrate and illuminate philosophical concepts. One of the great appeals of Star Trek for me has always been that it makes me think. Meta Treks is a...Read full review »

Philosophy through the lens of Star Trek, what could be better? Fans of science-fiction enjoy pondering the questions of existence and you will find that here. Entertaining and friendly discussions on a variety of subjects. 50 years of Star Trek and millenias of philosophy go hand in hand and...Read full review »

Where was this show when I was in college taking philosophy. Discussion of philosophical topics using Star Trek as examples. They discuss the messages and meanings behind Star Trek, and specific episodes and films.

I'm in my first year teaching Philosophy and this podcast has provided me with all kinds of ways to work Star Trek into my courses. Additionally, the hosts have helped me to both think about some philisophical concepts and Star Trek characters/episodes in ways I hadn't before. Good for anyone...Read full review »

I love this show. Zac and Mike always give a fresh spin on the Star Trek Universe. Not only is it fun but it's very thought provoking aswell. Keep it up guys!
Irishtrekfan via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 01/13/16
During the first half of each episode of Meta Treks I'm thinking, "Wow! These guys are so smart! I can't believe how much I'm learning!" After the halfway mark my thoughts change to, "I have no idea what they're talking about. I'm a huge dolt." Jokes aside, I really apprecaite the...Read full review »

A show that takes all the deep questions in Trek and attempts to answer them with modern philosophy and breaks it down for the average person. Excellent Show!
Christopher Settle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/12/16
Being a Trek fan for a long time I've always known the show had many religious and philosophical implications. This show is an examination of a lot of those implications in a highly insightful way. Topics are discussed rationally, with many references to philosophical schools of thoughts, and...Read full review »
Oneksquared via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/11/16
This podcast is excellent. Philosophy and Star Trek, what a great combination. It looks at themes in the show and talks about the philosophy behind them. This may not be quite the casual Star Trek fan’s cup of tea, but anyone with an interest in the Philosophy, science, mathematics, and is also a...Read full review »

Star Trek has had philosophy incorporated in it almost from the beginning. The hosts of Meta Treks take real world philosophy and combine it with the Star Trek universe.
17Bryan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/04/16
I LOVE this show. Star Trek is so well known for presenting such interesting and complicated philosophical issues, so I'm so glad to have found a podcast that goes so in depth into them. The hosts are engaging, articulate, and clearly know their stuff. I feel like I've gained a better...Read full review »

Great show with neat topics. This is such a fertile ground for discussion. My favourite episode so far is the Starship of Thesius. Keep it up!
DJ Shea via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/22/15
Ok, it's just way too long. Good topics and all that but it's a little long winded.
ChiquitaBanana1984 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/17/15
I absolutely love this podcast! As an ardent Trekkie who is also a person of faith, I often have trouble explaining to people how I reconcile the two in my head. Zachary and Michael do an amazing job of framing this fandom in a way that makes it okay for anyone to "worship at the altar of...Read full review »
Rachel from STL via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/16/15
I was excited when I found out about Meta Treks. It's easy for discussions related to franchises to ignore the underlying messages and themes but MT doesn't do that. It does tend to be heavier on the philosophy than on the Trek, so those looking for a lot of Trek talk might be dissatisfied....Read full review »
Warpexe via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/16/15
I've been thoroughly enjoying the episodes so far, and can't wait each week for more. I usually get to listen on a morning run, when the stars are still out, and as I look up at them, I get insightful looks into episodes, characters, or ideas in Star Trek. Since I don't often get to talk things...Read full review »

Philosophy with a Star Trek twist. This is a really entertaining and informative show covering philosophical topics using trek to provide examples
cbspock via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/14/15
I love and listen religiously to everything on the network, but Meta Treks is a huge disappointment. They barely mention Star Trek in most instances, and their philosophical "discussions" amount to nothing more than spouting off philosophical theories and posing questions. Sure, there are...Read full review »
