There’s no scarcity of fan-based Trekkie programs, yet Shereese Alexander and also Andrea Redmond stand apart from the group with The TNG Podcast

Referring to themselves as ” real-world geeks,” Andrea and also Shereese hold a number of levels in between them, consisting of aquatic biology, microbiology, immunology, and also molecular genes.

Yet their enthusiasm is sci-fi. These real-life buddies enjoy to geek out over Star Trek: The Next Generation (and also anything else sci-fi) while drinking warm Earl Grey tea.

They maintain audiences connected with their once a week episode-by-episode ” take apart” of the 7 periods of the greatly prominent television program.

Andrea described, ” After we came to be close friends, in a few of our discussions, we discussed just how much we liked enjoying Star Trek: The Next Generation while we were maturing. We would generally discover ourselves going crazy throughout those discussions, and also we assumed we should certainly bottle them and also transform them right into a podcast.”

The initial episode of The TNG Podcast was launched in May 2020 while Shereese and also Andrea were showing practically. They discovered that they had lots of added power, since they weren’t travelling, and also they funnelled that power right into beginning the podcast.

Shereese explained, ” Our podcast is distinct since we damage down the scientific research of the program. And also, as ladies that are BIPOC [Black, Indigenous, and People of Color], we bring a various point of view. We take a look at each episode with the lens of variety, equity, and also incorporation.

” We were privileged to speak with a star that got on Star Trek: The Next Generation as an added, and also we additionally talk about established style, personality advancement, and also enjoyable points that come to everyone.

” One of our audiences talked about the truth that we discussed a personality’s ‘ actually dope attire.’ She stated when she listened to that, she understood that our program was for her, as opposed to any one of the various other Star Trek podcasts.”

Andrea’s passion in Star Trek started with her papa. ” He was a designer and also had a deep love for Star Trek, Star Wars, anything Stars … the Captain Picard personality advises me of him. Considering that my papa died, I discover it calming to view the program, since it seems like I’m experiencing the memory of enjoying it with him.”

Like several audiences, Andrea’s preferred personality is Q. ” He is a charlatan and also scammer,” she stated.

Andrea connects since she suches as to play amusing tricks on family and friends. ” Hopefully, I do not create individuals the variety of frustrations that Q produces,” she chuckled.

” The star that plays Q, John de Lancie, does an unbelievable work. He makes me want I were a fly on the wall surface for the experiences aboard the ship. I would certainly like to ask John whether there was a great deal of stress, as I think of there was, to play the initial brand-new alien to be presented on The Next Generation I ask yourself just how much of himself he offered the personality and also what it resembled to produce a rascal personality from square one.”

Andrea is additionally one for journey. ” I invest my pause stand-up paddling, skate boarding, or treking and also camping with my eight-pound young puppy. I’m additionally enthusiastic concerning food preparation, enhancing, and also crafts. That’s why established design captures my interest when we view Star Trek episodes.

” On a normal Saturday or Sunday early morning, I get up and also ride my bike to the farmers’ market, go rock-climbing for two-and-a-half hrs, go searching at sundown, and also at the end of the day, I could make an alcoholic drink and also check out a publication or view a motion picture with close friends.”

Shereese defined herself as ” an autist that is the specific reverse of Andrea. When I am not showing or sci-fi-ing, I utilize my Oculus, an online truth headset, to exercise, view motion pictures, or play video games.

” I additionally invest a great deal of my time collaborating with customers in the online service globe.”

Shereese’s preferred personality is Data, played by Brent Spiner. ” Data wishes to end up being much more human, so all his communications are planned to assist us comprehend humankind far better. I constantly seemed like that as a child … like an outsider searching in. I really did not comprehend individuals’s feelings and also responses.

” Brent Spiner is really respected, and also obviously, he has actually acted in great deals of hit motion pictures in addition to little movies and also programs. If I had the opportunity to interview him, I would certainly ask him concerning his preferred personality. I’m interested which one he is most pleased with.

” Data is an extremely famous personality, and also Brent has a great deal of array as a star. The difficulty with a program like Star Trek is that a great deal of the personalities merely provide guidelines and also descriptions, so you do not actually reach see their acting chops. Every so often, something insane occurs on an episode, and also you reach see the stars’ skills. Information has no feeling or character, and also there’s absolutely nothing vibrant concerning the method he connects with others, so I ask yourself if that personality extended Brent one of the most.”

When Shereese and also Andrea asked a section of their target market why Star Trek: The Next Generation is very important to them, the agreement appeared to be that the program teems with expedition, appeal, and also development.

” Many individuals are still astounded by Star Trek today since it describes the human problem, and also there are numerous personalities in the franchise business, every follower can discover one to relate to,” Andrea kept in mind.

Shereese included, ” We proactively urge our audiences to involve with us on Instagram and also using e-mail. We constantly take pleasure in hearing their point of views, since it aids us have a fresh point of view and also enables every person to have their voices listened to.”

Shereese summarized the factor individuals are attracted to their program: ” I assume our audiences like us since we’re geeks and also Star Trek followers like they are, so it really feels a little bit like a kinship– a discussion with a number of close friends concerning Star Trek episodes we like. When somebody pays attention to our program, they’re welcomed right into our relationship.”

Anthony Evans Drops “Even If” Single




Anthony Evans, No.1 Billboard charting Gospel artist, producer, performer, author, and vocal contractor/arranger for some of music’s most popular icons, announces the release of his brand new single, “Even If.” Available today, the song is the lead track from Evans’ highly anticipated full length studio album “REVIVE” that will drop globally in early 2024. Listen to “Even If” here.

“Even If” follows on the heels of Evans’ 2020 album “Altared” – a project that marked his second consecutive #1 on the Billboard Gospel Album chart. After a brief intermission from making new music, Evans’ heartfelt 2024 album, true to its title “REVIVE,” powerfully reflects his painstaking return to a strong, enduring faith after a long season of personal loss, heartache, and doubt.

The project’s lead track, “Even If,” is a slow building tune that explodes in exultation, with a declaration to praise, even if everything doesn’t go as he planned.

Says Evans, “It’s a song about what it means to have hope when your circumstance seems hopeless. It was written for those of us who have ever been in a scenario where your feelings have been telling you that God has forgotten about you. It was also written for those of us who need a reminder that your emotions don’t have intellect and don’t always tell you truth. Even if what we are facing seems insurmountable, despite what you’re feeling, God is still good.”

While setting his personal music aside for a season to focus on his mental, spiritual, and personal health, Evans has spent the past couple of years producing artist vocals for live events. He has worked on projects for Grammy winning, multi-platinum artist DJ Khaled – the latest in a long line of legendary figures who have sought out his array of behind-the-scenes talents, including Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, 2Chainz, Tyler The Creator, Kirk Franklin and Tori Kelly.

Look for Evans this fall as the official spokesperson for the international relief, development, and advocacy organization, Food for the Hungry on “The Reunion Tour” alongside Kirk Franklin, Tye Tribbett, The Clark Sisters, David and Tamela Mann, and Israel Houghton. The nationwide arena tour kicks off on Sept. 28 in Bridgeport, Conn. vising major cities around the country before concluding on Nov. 24 in Fort Worth, Texas.

In the coming year, Evans will be promoting “REVIVE” in part on the 2024 version of “Fervent,” the touring event that he and his sister, NY Times bestselling author and actress Priscilla Shirer, host in multiple cities. He and his company, Sherman James Productions, have produced 40 sold-out events over the past few years. Also, in 2024, Evans will be bringing back “Kingdom Legacy Live,” an event inspired by the words of his mother, “All of you…together,” which features his father, Dr. Tony Evans, and siblings, Chrystal Evans Hurst, Priscilla Evans, and Jonathan Evans. The first “Kingdom Legacy Live” program in 2023 had over 6,000 attendees.
