TrekRanks Episode 168: Abstract Counting

Originally released on October 13, 2023

Listen to the show :

We get abstract again on TrekRanks in one of our most popular recurring topics. This week it is "Abstract Counting" where our panel, featuring host Jim Moorhouse and guests Abby Sommer and Bryan, make a myriad of picks related to different counts in Trek. From big board numbers to the incredibly mundane and specific, no count is too abstract for this fun episode!

Episode Rundown:

Diagnostic Cycle: We recap the previous Abstract topics and breakdown what we mean specifically by "counting" for this topic.

Prime Directive: Each guest on this week's panel reveals exactly how they narrowed down their list and made their final choices.

The Order of Things: All the picks are revealed with the TrekRanks' original "Five words and a hashtag" summary, along with one episode that helps frame their choice.

Secondary Systems: For a few extra picks that just missed our final list.

Regeneration Cycle: The panel recaps their picks and we dissect some of the interesting statistical anomalies that arose from the discussion.

Temporal Inversion: We flashback to a previous episode of TrekRanks and relay some of the feedback received from listeners.

If you have your own picks you would like to relay to us, please hail us at 609-512-LLAP (5527) and record your own personal TrekRanks log to let us know your Abstract Counting picks. (Or you can record it yourself and just DM us @TrekRanks on Twitter.) Your comments could be used as part of a Temporal Inversion on an upcoming episode (and might get you a chance to be a guest on a future episode, too).
