BIG CHANGES ARE COMING TO THE G&T SHOW!
Hey all, Terry here! I have some pretty big announcements about The G&T Show!
As many of our listeners are already aware, the upcoming Annual 24 Hours of G&T Show is scheduled to air October 28th and 29th, 2017. This will also be our 300th episode!
300 is pretty insane, right? To think, Mike, Nick and I have been gathering every Sunday morning to talk about Star Trek for well over six whole years!
What may surprise many of you though, is that our 300th episode will also be our last show in its current format.
We’ve been doing a lot of talking lately about the future of the show and where it’s going in conjunction with our love for Busy Little Beaver Productions. The fact is, with the premier of Star Trek Discovery, we’re seeing an explosion of new Star Trek-focused podcasts and after shows. And while we’ve never believed we’re in competition with any podcast, the fact is, we think the topic will be pretty hashed-out by the time we get to talking about it.
Combine that with the fact that all three of us have grown and have new and wonderful interests that we still want to talk about. So, after 24 hour Episode 300 show airs, we going to be taking a nice, long vacation and come back after the first of the year with a whole new G&T Show!
300 is a damned-fine number to start a new endeavor, don’t you think?
A PERFECT END AND A PERFECT BEGINNING
To celebrate this amazing milestone and change in our show’s focus, we’re going to do something a bit different than we have in the past: We’re not asking for any money for our server/production costs during our 24-hr show. Instead, we’re going to ask all our listeners to donate to one of our favorite charities: Pop Culture Hero Coalition.
Pop Culture Hero Coalition was Founded in 2013 and is the first 501(c)3 organization to use stories from TV, film & comics to make a stand for real-life heroism over bullying, racism, misogyny, LGBTQ-bullying, cyber-bullying, and other forms of hate.
Being the fans of well-told stories that we are, The G&T Show feels strongly that we need to find avenues of non-violent resolutions to our problems, and that education is the key to breaking the seemingly endless cycle-of-abuse/bullying in our world.
Please join us for our 24-hour show over the last weekend of October. We will have some nice prizes and giveaways for those who donate to PCHC. (Don’t worry, I’m not the one responsible for mailing them out – Mike is doing it this year. He’s much more reliable than me in that regard.)
We already have some amazing guests lined up, along with games and other tomfoolery on the 24-hour show, and we’re thrilled to be able to do something for Pop Culture Hero Coalition.
POP CULTURE HERO COALITION
But you don’t have to wait for our 24-hour show to donate to PCHC! We encourage all our fans and listeners to make their own voices heard by supporting PCHC now. Head over to Pop Culture Hero Coalition and donate! Anyone who donates to PCHC during the month of October until our 24-hour show, and provides us with proof of their donation during the 24-hour show on October 28th and 29th will be eligible for that time-period’s giveaway!
That’s right! If you’ve got money in your pocket now, or tend to have more at the beginning of the month than at the end, then you have no excuse! Give a little, get a tax-write off, and maybe- just maybe – catch an autographed Star Trek novel, a t-shirt, cool toy, or game!
Join The G&T Show in support of Pop Culture Hero Coalition and help us get the stories of real heroes out to everyone and help stop bullying and hate in all its forms.
We could not have come so far without our amazing listeners and we’re totally excited to bring a new and revamped G&T Show in 2018. Join us throughout October as we tie the bow on 300 episodes of Star Trek-focused love and prepare to begin a totally new adventure celebrating ALL of our Pup Culture Heroes!
Remember – above all…
