Reopening the Wormhole is a weekly podcast in which three Deep Space Nine obsessives tackle a randomly selected episode from the series and analyze all the things they love and hate about it. Each week, they'll try to determine the funniest lines out of context, deliver their very official review scores and much more! Make sure to stick around until the end, so you don't miss it when they spin the Dabo wheel to reveal next week's episode! 

Featuring Jack Stovold, Sam Stovold and Kevin Young

2020 was a lot of things, but if there’s one thing it’ll be remembered as, it’s that it’s the year of 3 Star Trek shows. It was just too significant for the RTW boys to not share their thoughts with listeners, so they geared up to have a brief look down memory lane about the Year in Trek of 2020, and the year in general. What they got instead of over four hours of chit chat, including a ton of talk about Picard, Lower Decks, and Discovery, as well as a series of recommendations from all three hosts, as well as a high level of navel-gazing. It wouldn’t be a post-DS9 episode of RTW if there wasn’t a high level of self-congratulatory banter about our favorite episodes of our own shows, and our favorite songs that WE wrote. Spirits flow as spirits run high. Listeners who want general discussions about the three Trek seasons of 2020 won’t want to miss this episode. And if you’re looking for recommendations outside of Star Trek…. You’ve come to the right place!
