The Secrets of Stargate is a fan podcast about the hit 1994 movie and the TV series that followed, including SG-1, Atlantis, and Universe, plus whatever comes next. The show goes beyond the surface to look at the deeper layers and themes found in Stargate, while enjoying the mythologies explored, the fun science fiction elements, and the trademark humor. Whether you’re new to Stargate and watching it for the first time, like our host Jack Baruzzini, or a longtime fan like Lisa Jones, Victor Lams, and Fr. Cory Sticha (who also brings his expertise as a US Air Force veteran), you will be sure to enjoy the Secrets of Stargate.

Here’s how to listen to or follow the podcast. (Don’t worry: It doesn’t cost anything to follow.)
Meridian - Goodbye Daniel. Jack Baruzzini, Lisa Jones, and Fr. Cory Sticha discuss the departure of a main character and addition of a new one; the cast's affective performances; atomic accidents; the nature of ascension in the show; and the value of life.
The Sentinel - What happens when humans meddle in other worlds for selfish reasons rather than altruistic ones? Jack Baruzzini, Lisa Jones, Fr. Cory Sticha, and Victor Lams discuss 'Sentinel,' including its many good ideas that don't all fit well in the story.
Menace - Replicator origin story! Jack Baruzzini, Lisa Jones, Fr. Cory Sticha, and Victor Lams discuss another story where Daniel's optimism wars with Jack's realism over whether someone responsible for great evil can be saved and even whether it is a person at all.
The Warrior - When Teal'c finds his people's George Washington, SG1 may fracture. Jack Baruzzini, Lisa Jones, Fr. Cory Sticha, and Victor Lams discuss the themes of loyalty, redemption, honor and betrayal in this story, as well as the missed opportunities to bring up challenges and obstacles.
Fail Safe - Apocalypse, Deep Impact, and now Fail Safe. Jack Baruzzini, Lisa Jones, Fr. Cory Sticha, and Victor Lams discuss this asteroid disaster movie and they have a split judgment on its quality. Is it a fun romp or is it too cringey?
