The Journey through TOS
 
Kay Shaw joins Ken Tripp this week to discuss her recent journey through the original series. Kay grew up with TNG, VOY, and Enterprise. Over the last few months she has been viewing TOS for the first time. A fresh perspective on the foundational series.

Ken and Kay discuss the interesting aspect of going from the "modern" series back to where it all began. What was it like seeing the show for the very first time and does it hold up after all these years? Kay brings a great and fun perspective to the show. We hope you enjoy the journey through the series and movies strengths and opportunities as well as the great conversation with one of Trek.FM' s favorite podcasters.
