    2020 is coming to a close and that means it’s time for a long standing tradition here on Trek Geeks! In 2015, we started to include our pre/post-show banter as a little clip after the end theme of the podcast and, since then, it’s really taken on a life of its own. It provides a tiny glimpse into our friendship and typically has us laughing quite a bit. This week we conclude our two part 2020 Outtakes Special, featuring all of the “Bing Bong” moments from throughout the year. We hope you all have a safe, happy, and healthy New Year!
