And you won't want to miss their bonus episodes about all the other great ape-based entertainment out there.

In a very special episode, cohost Jack’s other project, Star Trek: DS9 Podcast Reopening the Wormhole joins forces with The ApeCast (a podcast crossover!) to talk about a nutty comics crossover!  That’s right, two dream teams come together, as we finally delve into our hitherto endlessly  teased episode about Star Trek / Planet of the Apes: The Primate Directive!  In more ways than one, two great flavors are coming together as Kirk and the Enterprise crew meet with Taylor, Zira, Cornelius and the rest of the Planet of the Apes!  It’s not all fun and games though, especially when Kor, the most devilish Klingon of them all, and treacherous gorilla General Marius have their sights set on world domination.  (Apes) Jack and Geoff join (Trek) Jack, Sam and Kevin for a huge free-wheeling conversation about, among other things, comic art, what happens when apes and aliens meet, the differing approaches of Japanese and American comic storytelling, how Star Trek and Apes handle the aftermath of nuclear devastation, the appropriate level of fan service, the enduring appeal of kooky crossovers, and, most improbably, the relative merits of the works of Andrew Lloyd Webber!  Beam up to this MADHOUSE to experience what is possibly the geekiest thing you will ever hear!
