What do you think The Greatest Generation podcast is a reference to? Well, if you’re a fan of old-school TV shows, then you might have heard of this little gem called Star Trek. And with Benjamin Ahr Harrison and Adam Pranica by your side, they’ll take you on a journey through Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. That’s right folks, this is a review-based podcast that covers the greatest moments from this beloved TV show. From Captain Sisko and his brilliant plans to “shampoo holocausts,” Benjamin and Adam “trek” into every aspect of the Star Trek series. And even if you’re not a self-proclaimed “Trekkie,” this is a great way to immerse yourself in a brand new show!

The Hosts: Aside from The Greatest Generation, Adam also hosts Friendly Fire and The Greatest Discovery. He seems to love his 40-year-old “dad” haircut and used to be a filmmaker and videographer before moving on to the podcasting world. Benjamin also hosts Friendly Fire and The Greatest Discovery, but he’s also a video director for the Maximum Fun network. He currently lives in Los Angeles, but previously attempted a film-making career in Brooklyn, New York. 

The Guests: There doesn’t seem to be any guests on this science-fiction comedy podcast, but don’t let that stop you from boarding the USS Enterprise.

Why You Have to Listen: This Star Trek commentary podcast isn’t just for Trekkie fans, because it’s also filled with dark and dirty humor. And if you need some proof, just take a look at the titles of the following episodes: The Best Ass in Starfleet, This That Is My Dick, and Yeomans Are For F*****g. Each episode is over 1-hour in length and features lots of discussions, jokes, and references to smaller plot points. Longtime fans of the show may also reminisce over their favorite Star Trek episodes, so get ready for memories of the Gamma Quadrant, the Dominion, “sex vacations,” and Bajor. Oh, and there’s lots to choose from as well, about 300 episodes as a matter of fact.

About the author


Copywriter, content writer, photographer, and actress who enjoys being lazy through the magic of video games, Netflix, and hiking, though the latter of which requires a buried willpower.


Talin went to school for mathematics, but decided to switch to an acting career halfway through. Against her parents wishes, she then moved to California to pursue this pipe dream, and is still, as some would say, "climbing through the trenches." She's also self-taught in photography, writing, and graphic design, since she believes that school is a financial sinkhole that society loves to promote.

Work History

Talin is lazy and doesn't feel like bragging about each and every employment opportunity that came her way. Rather, she'll leave you with the following, "I've written so much for companies that I'm begrudgingly sprinting toward full-blown arthritis."
