This Saturday, January 15th, Roddenberry Podcasts and the Trek Geeks Podcast Network is hosting a very special, star studded, six-hour Trek Talks charity telethon streamed live on YouTube. With COVID keeping us apart, this event promises to be a fun-filled evening that almost (but not quite) makes up for the lack of conventions for the last two years. Plus, it’s for a good cause. The event will raise money, in a Jerry Lewis-style telethon, for the Hollywood Food Coalition, which has been providing hot meals and other resources for those in need seven nights a week for 35 years.
Host John Billingsley (Dr. Phlox of Enterprise) promises a night of antics, giveaways, panels, and serious conversation. The event is meant to allow viewers to drop in and out as they please, so you can tune in any time on Saturday January 15th from 12-6pm Pacific. All the details, including links to the event when it goes live, can be found at the Trek Talks website.
The live event will stream here (you’ll also be able to find it on Roddenberry, Mission Log, and Trek Geeks social media platforms):
