Jack becomes a man by doing a podcast all by himself about every single episode of Star Trek: Discovery, Short Treks, and Picard! Join him as he listens to some sweet tunes, cracks bad jokes and reviews each episode. Stick around until the end for sweet and spicy features!
 
Join Jack, Kevin and Sam as they journey through the wonderful world of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, one randomly selected episode at a time! Each week, they'll go over their notes on each episode, compare them with other iterations of Star Trek, complain about Voyager, talk about whatever the hell else comes to mind, and much, much more! Of course it wouldn't be Reopening the Wormhole without the requisite visit to Quark's to spin the Dabo wheel and determine next week's episode. So crack op ...

Barm is back from his whirlwind November tour of Castville, and joins Jack and Sam Stovold (Marvel Star Wars Explorers) to talk SCAVENGERS. That means you’ll be digging through the garbage to find gems like the story of the vagina-faces, a discussion of what working with people from a thousand years ago would REALLY be like and a show from Admiral …
 
As Luke and Lando return to Iskalon to deliver the news of Kiro's fate to his people, Geoff Clarke, our Canadian Correspondent, returns to the cast to give us his thoughts on the first 3 episodes of The Mandalorian, to explore an exciting new season of 1985 television premieres (including two infamous Star Wars cartoons), and to get hyped with us a…
 
A birthday just isn’t a birthday unless you spend it talking at length about Deep Space Nine characters with your buddies! (I guess most of our birthdays haven’t been birthdays… that’s gloomy…) Luckily for us, there are enough fascinating characters on Deep Space Nine that we could load two completely different brackets, and still have some left ov…
 
The ApeCast tackles Disco Season 3! For the first time in Season 3, Geoff Clarke (The ApeCast) brings his still SOMEWHAT unbiased Ape Peepers to Trek, and (mostly) likes what he sees, and it’s not just because master body-horror director and Canadian national treasure David Cronenberg is appearing in this episode for whatever reason (we’re not comp…
 
As Han Solo wrestles with his feelings for Princess Leia on a far, far away and technologically-deficient planet, we welcome Barm back to the podcast to dive into our hot takes on the first two episodes of the new season of The Mandalorian, to soak in the glorious return of Fenn Shysa (and debut of Bey!) and to consider the romantic inner-life of e…
 
TRILL POOLS! They’re back, and so are Sam Stovold (Marvel Star Wars Explorers, Reopening the Wormhole) and Sean Davis (After the Credits) to do the deepest dive (into a Trill pool) on Trills since Reopening the Wormhole! Recent events, and a delicious new Jaxilly drank have the guys in high spirits as they debate the relative merits of Trill advent…
 
It’s the first big Disco party of Season 3, as Jack, Sam and Kevin of RTW, Barm, and Ferengi expert and Golden Boy Kregg collide in orbit over Earth, and tensions are running HIGH when the group finds itself dividing into factions. (And this is even before George Lucas pops in to offer up his hot takes.) Sure, we can all agree on key issues like Bo…
 
It’s FIRST SEANTACT as Sean Davis (who somehow hasn’t been on to talk about a Discovery episode yet) joins Jack and Barm to talk about the wacky continuing adventures of Captain Saru, Jett Reno, Emperor Georgiou and other classic characters after Disco reopened the wormhole. Along the way, we’ll wax nostalgic for “boring Star Trek”, see how far we …
 
As All Hallow’s Eve approaches, the Reopening the Wormhole crew felt a swelling of the Spooky Spirit that could only be expressed by watching this classic(?) somewhat spooky episode of TNG and discussing it for the benefit of you, the listener. The trend continues of discussing a generally maligned episode from the final season of TNG: Sub Rosa. In…
 
As the New Republic faces its first major conflict against the combined forces of the Nagai and the Empire, the Marvel Star Wars Explorers celebrate the big 100th issue milestone by welcoming back two of our favorite Star Friends, Eric Ambler and Sean Davis! It's a double-sized issue and it warrants a double-sized discussion, in which we tackle ano…
 
Eat your heart out, Covid, because we’ve got DISCO FEVER! Jackshow mainstay Barm (he brought his own mic!) and Kevin (Reopening the Wormhole) join Jack to talk about the wacky and kind of wonderful opener to Season 3! We’ve got a LOT to discuss here, including a lengthy discussion on the history of vomit in Trek, FUN Burnham, Indian Desmond, the Te…
 
Jack’s Silly bids adieu to Lower Decks (and one of our favorite characters) for now, with a group of All Stars! Jack is joined by Barm, Kevin Young (Reopening the Wormhole), Geoff Clarke (The ApeCast), Ferengi expert Kregg Castillo (Golden Boy?) and Sean Davis (After the Credits) to talk SERIOUS Lower Decks, Peanut Hamper and Exo-comps, the return …
 
As the Star Warriors race across the galaxy to save a planet on the verge of death, Gensho Tasaka races back to our podcast studio to weigh in on whether or not J.J. Abrams successfully landed the plane, to ponder the absence of Asian actors in American cinema of the 80s, and to react to the ICONIC debut of the latest addition to these pages, Bey.…
 
Jack Stovold (Reopening the Wormhole, The ApeCast) directs! In this thrilling chapter of the Jack’s Silly Saga, Jack (JACK STOVOLD) and Barm (BARM) are discussing the 9th episode of STAR TREK: LOWER DECKS, when Richard (RICHARD DUNHAM) appears – and their lives are changed forever.

The trial of the Millenium of Aftermath/The Willenium is listening to Jaxilly’s coverage of VERITAS. Court is now in session, and Jack and witnesses Barm and Kevin Young (Reopening the Wormhole) swear to tell the veritas, the whole veritas, and nothing but the veritas about their feelings on… Veritas. Whether that means spilling the eels on Jack’s …
 
As Han Solo finds himself in the unexpected position of babysitting two children and escorting them on behalf of a mining guild, we find ourselves in the unexpected position of having Eric Wheeler take over the podcast for an episode to unleash his thoughts on The Rise of Skywalker and The Mandalorian, to school us on the art of Gymkata, and to mar…
 
Are you wearing your masks when you go out? We sure hope so! And we hope they’re more effective than the masks worn by Data & Picard in this infamous episode of TNG. Regarded by many as one of the worst episodes of the show, we felt the time was right to give it the RTW treatment. It’s got many of the hallmarks of fun TNG episodes: Brent Spiner act…
 
Jack, Sam and Barm reunite just to hang out and talk Trek, and it feels so good. And this seems to be the perfect episode for them to do just that! It’s really a hangout sesh, as the Boims talk about their love of Boimler, their admiration for the whole voice cast, the positive evolution of Mariner, and a buncha real nerdy shit, like reveling in th…
 
Geoff Clarke (Jack’s partner in crime on the ApeCast) joins Jack and Barm to share his thoughts on Lower Decks and TERMINAL PROVOCATIONS, specifically. But ESPECIALLY Badgey. But we’re also here to talk JG Hertzler, TNG again (a lot), Holodeck tomfoolery, that one Fletcher-type we all know, the future ascendance of Mexican food, Lethal Weapon, what…
 
As Luke and Kiro attempt to rescue Dani from the clutches of the Nagai, we welcome a new Star Friend, Ariel Quist-Sprawls, to the podcast to discuss New Coke's effect on our lives, to compare what we all had for dinner, to discuss our favorite and least favorite interpretations of the force, and to debate which Nagai has the best hair.…
 
Parasite-induced love is in the air, as Barm and Jack are joined for the first time on this podcast by What Were We Watching·s Cam Siemer, one of the Founding Fathers of Castville, to talk about Bradward in Love. We reflect on Lower Decks (and Mariner) finding their groove, the disturbing lack of Dr. Katz, Star Trek Lore (and Data), DEEP SPACE NINE…
 
As Kiro attempts a daring rescue of an injured Luke on the desolate world Kinooine, we welcome back two returning champions, Chris Lantz and Jack Stovold to talk about the shocking revelations regarding Lumiya's identity, the upcoming adventures of the Lego Star Warriors, and the states of the Star Wars world in 1985 and 2020.…
 
The inimitable Sean Davis joins Jack and Barm in making juvenile innuendos about the title “Moist Vessel”, and pulls off a “hi-third-oh” unknown feat on this show-- being the first guest to write an email into the show DURING his appearance, in case you’re wondering what all the keyboard clacking that could only be partially edited out is. They’re …
 
RTW will go on forever! In perpetuity, doing random bonuses! And we are BACK, to quote the Romulans. This time, we’re making a big fun celebration to honor the anniversary of RTW host Kevin by taking part in a big ol’ DS9 character bracket! Kevin’s twin (whose birthday it also is) Paul Wall joins, along with his wife Jacalyn. In a fun twist on the …
 
To talk about time, and crystals, (but not time crystals) Jack, Barm, and Kevin are joined by RTW email legend Jason Butze, making his JSLFNSTDSTPALDP debut! The gang has a blast diving into such diverse topics as the mistakes Jack has made, Butze’s take on Picard, Ben Franklin’s coolness, work-ruining changes from corporate overlords, Sliders, Gar…
 
It’s the second episode of Lower Decks, and the first appearance of a Ferengi in Star Trek in EIGHTEEN YEARS, so you know who Jack had to grab for this one! That’s right, it’s Space Merchant Ferengi expert Kregg Castillo, finally getting to talk about Ferengis on Jack’s Silly! In addition to waxing rhapsodic over their profound love of Quimp, the D…
 
As Luke finds himself on the hostile world of Kinooine, facing his most formidable foe since Darth Vader and the Emperor, we find ourselves facing some of our favorite Star Friends, Cam Siemer and Sean Davis, for a lengthy and spirited discussion covering such diverse topics as the rumored (and definitely real) Lucas Cut of Episode IX, the exciting…
 
Saddle up! Let’s lock, load, and LOOK at the newest member of the Star Trek Crew (of shows). To do that, Jack has brought back the P.D. Crew (himself, Barm, and Sam and Kevin from Reopening the Wormhole) to check out Second Contact, the first outing of Lower Decks. Is it good Star Trek? Is it funny? Does it have ENOUGH Star Trek/California referenc…
 
LOWER DECKS!? Never heard of it. At this podcast, all we know is DISCO, and we got DISCO BOOK FEVER. Jack and Barm, widely known as the two biggest Emperor Georgiou (and Section 31) fans in the world, have joined forces to discuss the OTHER crazy thing between the first and second seasons of Discovery that was happening, with crazy starfish people,…
 
As the Alliance grapples with a potential civil war between its two most adorable members, we welcome Eric Ambler, Dark Horse Star Wars Explorer and the original Star Friend, back to the pod to weigh in on the uncertain future of Star Wars in the mid-eighties and today, to hear his thoughts on the stunning cinema of January 1985, to celebrate the d…
 
We wouldn’t let you guys endure an ENTIRE worldwide pandemic without dropping in at some point, would we? Well we almost did…. But we’re finally here, performing for you! Recorded all the way back in the sweet, naive days of April 2020, we are back to update you all on how we’re doing, how the world is doing, share our thoughts on Star Trek: Picard…
 
The drunk speak! That’s right, like our beloved Sheev, DRUNK STAR WARS has arisen from the dead, but the only difference is that this makes sense! Or as much sense as any drunk Star Wars episode could make. Jack’s bottle of whiskey may have cost 80 dollars less than Kregg’s, but the end result is the same: another few fantastic hours of drunk assho…
 
Remember back when Jack, Barm, and Kregg discussed Saru’s origins, and promised you a Sober Last Jedi commentary track? Of course you do, and 18 or so months later, here it is, because Jack can’t get enough of doing Last Jedi podcasts. The Golden Boy, the guy who’s on like 70% of the episodes of this show, and your Jedi host are back to talk about …
 
As Luke, Han and Leia unravel a dastardly plot unfolding on Cantros 7, we're rejoined by Star Friend (and creator of our theme song!) Daren Sprawls to talk about whether or not cat-like aliens belong in the Star Wars universe, to find out which internet cat celebrities Sam follows on social media, and to dive into the dense mythology of Grimalkians…
 
It’s time to Discover Discovery all over again! This time, the robotic Jack and Kevin of last year’s ELO party are joined by a couple of daft punks, in the form of Sam Stovold and Daft Punk superfan Geoff Clarke of the ApeCast, to talk about 2001’s Discovery. Inevitably, as the alcohol flows freely, they’re gonna talk about Interstella 5555, and br…
 
As Luke struggles to understand the meaning of the dreams that have been plaguing him, Sean Davis makes Sam and Brian's dreams come true by returning to the podcast to discuss A Nightmare on Elm Street's release, the thematic reflections of Kylo Ren in this issue, and the triumphant and long-awaited return of Flint and Barney.…
 
Beloved moths, the only Discovery podcast that is distermined not to talk about Star Trek: Discovery is BACK with its 3rd annual Curb Your Enthusiasm episode! Lauren and Jack are ready to talk about asshole and swan killer Larry David, but HERE COMES A NEW CHALLENGER! Sam Stovold has discovered the cheat code to get on to podcasts, and that is maki…
 
As Han, Lando and Chewie uncover a sinister plot unfolding on Kazhyyyk, Sam and Brian welcome Eric Deutsch back to the pod to give their hot takes on Jedi Temple Challenge, to discuss the excitement of getting a post-Holiday Special glimpse at the Wookiee homeworld, and to examine just how much Wookiee "dialogue" is too much. They find that it's ne…
 
It may be the millennium of Aftermath, but Jack and Barm aren’t awarding any platinum plaques to Star Trek: Discovery’s lackluster third comic series. It’s Klingons again, and not even the combined powers of Pike, Spock, and a John Colicos looking Kor are enough to save this comic from an anemic story and dodgy artwork, plus shitty binding that has…
 
Trust the fungus, and trust Jack’s Silly to bring you the BEST random audio commentaries for movies in the podcast GAME! This ain’t no edited postgame discussion, it’s a commentating live as the movie plays thrill ride! Jack’s Silly must have swallowed a mushroom, because it’s this show’s biggest audio commentary yet!
