Brooklyn, NY, April 12, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- The Rules of Acquisition has launched, providing a different kind of geek podcast to listeners by asking “Is Star Trek: Deep Space Nine a long lost prequel to the current Golden Age of prestige television?” Every week instead of focusing on geek news and events or technical minutiae, hosts Wade Bowen, James Nolen, and Hugh Crawford delve into a new episode of the 90s series, not as trekkies, but as television fans who just happen to be into Star Trek, thank you very much.
Each show ranges from 40 minutes to an hour. After a brief synopsis the hosts delve into the scenes, themes and characters of each episode with jokes and behind the scenes trivia about the production.
Episodes are explored within the context of the entire DS9 series arc, 90’s tv, Star Trek, and also where the show stands in comparison to the television of today. Each podcast ends with the question “What would you fix about this episode?” where the hosts can imagine how to repair egregious “bad 90s scifi” problems or address any minor quibbles they might have.
Wade Bowen, from the Rules of Acquisition Podcast says, “There’s a lot of serious trek podcasts out there, a few not so serious ones, and we’re … both? As much as I love Trek, some it’s … not so good. I don’t think we have it in us to be a calm, NPR style podcast.”
Wade Bowen is a comedian and improviser in Brooklyn, New York. He can be seen every third Saturday in No Feelings Presents at QED in Astoria, Queens.
James Nolen is a writer and stay-at-home father. He lives in St Louis, Missouri with his wife and two children.
Hugh Crawford draws the weekly comic strip Crimes Against Hugh's Manatees. He lives in Joplin, MO with his wife and their three children.
The Rules of Acquisition can be found on itunes, soundcloud, stitcher, and most other podcast aggregators.
