Fanaddicts is a weekly podcast that explores unique obsessions and those obsessed with them. Produced by Roddenberry Entertainment and hosted by Clare Kramer and David Magidoff, each week we follow a special guest down the rabbit hole of their favorite fixation – whether it’s woodworking, puppetry, baking bread, or zorbing (yep, it’s a real thing).
Understanding fans is baked into our DNA – it has forever been a part of Star Trek’s history and Roddenberry Entertainment has both nurtured and experienced its unifying power. In 1968, it was the fans that saved Star Trek from cancellation with a massive letter-writing campaign. In 1972, the first Star Trek fan convention was birthed in New York City. For over a half-century, our franchise has taught us what it means to be true enthusiasts and that desire to share such passions with others.
This is the podcast that understands everyone is a fanaddict about something.
