Those precious few of you who read this blog with any regularity know that I contribute material to the Sunday G&T Show, the weekly Trek-themed internet radio show and podcast hosted by friend and fellow Trek-fiends Nick Minecci and Terry Lynn Shull. The idea is simple: listeners of the show can submit questions, and each week Nick and Terry pick the best one to send to me so that I can provide an answer to be read on air during the next week’s show. This was an idea cooked up by Nick several months ago, and though I thought it had the potential to be a cute bit, I figured my brand of humor and that of the show’s audience might not have that much overlap. Therefore, I guessed the idea would go for a few weeks before dying a quiet death.
Apparently, I was quite wrong.
This coming Sunday will mark my 20th contribution to the show’s “Ask Dayton” segment. That’s right, folks: I’ve answered 19 separate queries, ranging from the benign to the bizarre; the serious (or somewhat serious) to the silly; the run-of-the-mill to the ridiculous. I actually enjoy the challenge of coming up with an answer to each week’s question that I hope is funny, and doing so in a short time frame, which is why I often will wait until the Saturday afternoon or evening prior to the show to sit down and compose said answer. I like to work with a bit of “pressure” to move things along.
Anyway, since I’ve done 19 of these things, I’m curious as to which answer might be people’s favorites. Therefore, I offer this shameless poll:
Maybe I’ll record a reading of the winning answer, or something.
Anyway, if you’re a fan of Star Trek, and in particular Star Trek Online, the Star Trek fiction from Pocket Books, and Star Trek fandom, give the G&T Show a listen, whydontcha?
