Disco Trek - L'Rell - Listen Now
I recently had the privilege and honour to appear on the Disco Trek
Podcast. Part of the Tricorder Transmissions network
which delivers thought provoking discussions on a variety of Star Trek topics.

If you don't follow Ted on twitter
already, you must. Not only Ted is a writer and supervising producer on Discovery he is a massive super fan of Star Trek. I was lucky enough to meet him and his companion #JasonGorn and exchanged a brief chat about Star Trek and it's like talking to any other fan at a convention that you've never met before but you share a common love of a show called Star Trek.

Here are our tweets summarising the panel.
