Literary Treks 122: Foibles of Human Nature

The Autobiography of James T. Kirk
Interview with David A. Goodman, Kirk's editor!







There are very few characters from television, film or literature that loom as large as Captain Kirk, he’s become a part of the cultural zeitgeist alongside Bond, Superman, and Darth Vader, but never before has he been presented to the world in his own words.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther are joined by David A. Goodman, the "editor" of The Autobiography of James T. Kirk. We discuss where the idea came from for the book, the small clues, merging canon, Star Trek V, the people Kirk bumps into, more books, the artwork and footnotes, wrapping up with our final thoughts.

In the news segment, we remind everyone that Titan: Sight Unseen is out.
