Episode 54: The Podcast is Reborn

When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the bands which have connected them with another, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. So in this first episode under the Non-Toxic Fanboys banner, Glenn & Scott talk about why the show is under a new banner, why they've decided to strike out on their own, what exactly the show’s gender is, and what their plans are for the next 8 years of the show.

You can support the show on Patreon at patreon.com/nontoxicfanboys or by shopping at Amazon using our Associates link https://amzn.to/2MLZaJ9.

The theme song for the podcast is Discovery by Alexander Nakarada.

Relaunch Update

Non-Toxic Fanboys is officially available on more than a dozen different podcast platforms, including Apple and Google. All of our old Spectacular episodes can be found on any of those platforms. We're also @nontoxicfanboys on a ton of social media sites, most of which I have no idea what to do with. But if you'd be interested in hearing from us on any of them then follow us and let us know! New episodes of the podcast should be cross-posted to our accounts on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Youtube, and this blog, as well as the podcast feed wherever you choose to subscribe, so there should nearly nowhere where you can't find our show. 

In terms of new episodes, we have several we're working on. The next episode will probably be a short one explaining why we rebranded and why we struck out on our own. We're also going to review Star Trek: Picard, Lower Decks, and Discovery Season 3, of course. We're also starting prep for this year's Oscar Preview, and probably something for National Film Score Day as well. Some day we'll watch The Mandalorian and I'm sure we'll have things to say about that. We may also start covering Marvel and DC movies now that we're not sharing a feed with 6 different comics-focused podcasts and won't be stepping on the toes of people way more knowledgeable than us. If there's a topic you'd like to see us cover, let us know on one of those social media sites, or you can email the show directly. 

So that's the plan for now. Subscribe and follow us wherever and however you wish, and watch out in the coming weeks for our first episodes under the new banner. Hopefully you'll be hearing from us soon.

Progress

So the show is starting to roll out to various podcast directories. I've added a list to the right of this page of all the places I know the show is available so far. Some sites post the feed within minutes of when I submit it, while others have a "review period" of up to 60 (!) days, so when the show shows up on more sites is out of my hands now. 

Like I said before, if there's an app or directory you want to make sure we try to get the show onto, email us or comment on this post to let us know.

The podcast is reborn!

What was once known as The Glenn Butler Podcast Hour Spectacular is now the Non-Toxic Fanboys! We're striking out on our own, starting our own feed with a catchier name and very little idea what we're doing. 

All of our old episodes are now re-posted on the new feed, which you can find at nontoxicfanboys.podbean.com or the RSS link https://feed.podbean.com/nontoxicfanboys/feed.xml. We're slowly rolling out to Apple and Google et al as I manage to navigate their various submission guidelines, but if there's one we missed that you wish we were on you can let us know! We're @nontoxicfanboys on Twitter, or you can email us at nontoxicfanboys@gmail.com. Note: We probably won't be available on Spotify. They're still primarily a music platform, and so they have very specific language in their submission guidelines about music licenses. Since we use a lot of unlicensed fair use music excerpts in our score reviews, for the time being we're staying off that platform to avoid any conflicts.

New episodes should resume soon, probably starting with us catching up on the various Star Trek shows we haven't reviewed yet. So if you've ever thought, "I like listening to these guys, but I wish their podcast had a title that was easier to shorten into a social media handle," now's the time to jump on board!

Hello old friends. It's been a while.

Hey all! So I know we've been AWOL for a while, but we've been doing a lot of work behind the scenes. The biggest news should be obvious if you've found this site - we've changed the name of the podcast and decided to start posting it to its own separate feed. The new feed is a little punchier, a little more Googleable, and a little more suited to being shortened into a social media handle. We're @nontoxicfanboys on a ton of platforms now, follow us to see if we ever post anything! 

Over the next little while we'll be reposting all our old episodes to the new feed. (Can I back-date them to the original pub date? I don't know! I'm still new at this!) Depending on when you read this, you should be able to subscribe to Non-Toxic Fanboys on most podcast apps, or just check this site for when new episodes are posted.
