MARCUS BERKMANN PODCAST NOTES
Series 2, episode 8
As well as being a journalist and author, Marcus was the pop music columnist for The Spectator magazine for over 28 years.
His latest book, Set Phasers to Stun: 50 Years of Star Trek, is all about...well, Star Trek.
Co-host duties this week fell to Mark Newbold, he of Series 1, Episode 5 fame.
Running time: 27.42
We recorded the podcast in The Wellington, real ale pub in Birmingham. If you're ever in the area, it's a 'proper pub'. I've not been paid to say that, though it screams 'Product Placement', it just really is a great pub.
We watched Marcus give a talk about his latest book, Set Phasers to Stun: 50 Years of Star Trek, at Birmingham Waterstones before we interviewed him.
