One of his first sci-fi memories was that of watching Star Trek the original series in reruns on Sunday mornings so, as you can imagine, that made quite the impression and was one of the inspirations for founding the Galactic Netcasts network in 2011.

You can hear Dave on The Alien Invasion, The SciFi Geeks Club and Weird World Weekly podcasts.
