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

RTW will go on forever! In perpetuity, doing random bonuses! And we are BACK, to quote the Romulans. This time, we’re making a big fun celebration to honor the anniversary of RTW host Kevin by taking part in a big ol’ DS9 character bracket! Kevin’s twin (whose birthday it also is) Paul Wall joins, along with his wife Jacalyn. In a fun twist on the standard tournament bracket, each choice is dictated by a unique question, hatched by the hosts themselves. While they wrestle with questions like “Who would you rather wake up next to after a night of drinking: Sisko or Damar”, they also get into tons of classic RTW tangents, silliness, and pedantry that you all know and love. Be on the lookout for three new very silly musical compositions by the team. And place your bets as to who will win the ultimate DS9 character bracket! You may be surprised at who ultimately takes it…. And keep your eyes peeled for our next random bonus episode! Coming soon to a podcast listening device near you!
