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 

Feb 26, 2020

Will the self-indulgence never end???? That’s right, Sam, Jack, and Kevin are back to indulge themselves in even more wistful nostalgia and self-congratulation in PART 2 of their Reopening the Wormhole retrospective! Like all awards shows, they saved the really big awards for last here, including their favorites and least favorites of both RTW and DS9, more listener email, a discussion about the music on the show, and more! These three have been through so much over the course of this podcast’s existence, and this episode sees them finally acknowledging the significant role it’s played in their lives. They may be done covering all the Deep Space Nine episodes, but the impact that Reopening the Wormhole has had on these podcasters will leave a lifelong beauty mark on all of their souls.
