George Takei on Howard Stern, new Trek, and working with Shatner
Which is why I was so happy to hear him on the first week of Howard Stern's
Sirius show, and was even happier to hear that he'll be a permanent part of the show as an announcer and occasional
guest. After years of the crew making fun of him, George was able to take being in such a foreign environment in
stride, delving into private areas that he never talked about before and easily bantering with show wise-ass Artie Lange, who loved working with him despite his discomfort with George's
sexuality. Takei discusses his week on the Stern show in his blog.
Takei discusses his time with Howard and a few other choice subjects in this interview with Whitney Matheson of USAToday.com. He also discusses his time with Shatner as well as his appearance on the new Internet-based series The New Voyages, which are new stories based on the orignial Star Trek characters. It's a good read.
