A Musical AMA.
Host Brandon-Shea Mutala loves music in all forms. The sounds of Star Trek are great, but this love was making him antsy. He wanted to play different kinds of music on Melodic Treks.
Inspired by Reddit's popular "Ask Me Anything," Brandon-Shea opened the floodgates on Twitter, Facebook, and in The Babel Conference. He hoped listeners would ask him to play some other music. They responded admirably.
In this episode of Melodic Treks, we take a more intimate look at the man behind the mic. So listen on and discover Brandon-Shea's favorite composer, his favorite summer tunes, the music that changed his life, his five favorite scores, his happy song, and his three favorite albums of all time. He also talks about his faith journey, his favorite character in each Star Trek series, and who he thinks was the best Batman!
