Enjoyed the David R George III interview, just needed to listen in two sittings as it was a 2hr 6min show. It was nice to hear that DRG III enjoyes reading trek as much as writing it. I would say it does enhance the quality of his work as a result. Looking forward to his entry of The Fall
, and the debut of the new DS9. Great show guys
I think it really does enhance his writing, PoN and RtD are great examples of how his love of the ongoing story really helps him get all the details right. You can also tell he loves characters and that his stories are motivated by them first. I think he should be given DS9, the same way Beyer has been given Voyager.
