The G & T Show is a podcast dedicated to storytelling, character, and Star Trek. However, we are so much more than just another Star Trek podcast. We are the premiere source for news from every quadrant of the Star Trek universe. We talk about everything from the products, books, comics, games, movies, tv shows, fan productions, conventions, and more. G & T Show invite you to check out Supplemental Logs, where we interview authors, game makers, writers, and celebrities. G &T Show is so much more than a Star Trek podcast, we are a community of fans with a wide range of interests and our show reflects that.

Our  website is the hub that all of our efforts revolve around. However, the G & T Show website has been experiencing technical issues due to the influx of new listeners. We are seeking funds to significantly expand our capabilities and bring back many of the features we had to pare down or remove in order to keep our site operational as the load on it increased. 

We have considered several options to help us resolve our website issues, including getting a sponsor to cover the cost in exchange for advertising on our show and our site. We decided against it, because we did not wish to compromise the integrity of our show. Therefore, we have decided to put our fate into the hands of those that appreciate our efforts in discussing Star Trek storytelling in all of its forms. We are asking our listeners, friends, and supporters to help us reach our current goal of $2200 (which includes the $1170 we already raised in previous fundraisers over the past four years)so that we can return stability, reliability, and the great features and capabilities to our website. So, for around $1000 we can continue to provide our family of friends, fans, and listeners with the quality shows you expect from the G & T Show.

If you can not help with financial support, please share this on your social media platforms and help us get the word out. If you can assist us financially, you can rest assured that your money will be used to continue delivering the shows, interviews, and other content that we have become known for. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Live Long And Prosper

We'd like to thank everyone that has contributed to our fundraiser. We have secured our new hosting service and have moved the current site over to it. Mike has since built a test site for the new theme and plugins. You can check it out at http://www.gandtshow.com/gnt_test/ . Last night we received a sizeable donation and should be able to secure the new theme and several of the plugins we require. There are a few others and the subscriptions we need, including a data back up service, podcast and social metrics, and more. If you can please continue to share and contribute to our fundraiser if you can. We are grateful to have such wonderfully generous listeners. Thank you!

It is my pleasure to announce that we have reached a milestone thanks to your generosity. We have secured the funds required for the new hosting server. THANK YOU! We couldn't have done it without you.

The new server has been purchased and set up. I'm still configuring it and backing up our files and databases in preparation of the big move. It will take a few more days before I'm ready to begin the actual move, but we are getting closer.

We are not done yet. The remainder of this fundraiser will go towards a new theme, plugins, subscriptions, domain renewals, and other licenses in order to make our websites in the Busy Little Beaver Productions network better, easier to use, and more functional.

Please continue to donate and share this fundraiser, we still have a lot of items to mark off our list. We couldn't have gotten this far without you, and together we can go even farther. Thank you!

I'd like to take a moment to thank everyone that has contributed to our GoFundMe Fundraiser for website upgrades. We couldn't have gotten this far without you.

We are drawing closer to the end of the year and the end of our fundraiser and still have quite a ways to go to be able to fund all of features we are looking to add to our site. A few hundred dollars and we'll be able to get our server covered, which is the most important. Everything else after that will go directly into the site and will check off items on our wish list, like a new theme, better plugins, more features and subscriptions.

If you can contribute, please do. We need your help. If you can't contribute, please continue to share our fundraiser and help get the word out. Every little bit helps. Thank you.

Our fundraiser is still ongoing. We have made some great progress so far, but we still have a long way to go. To everyone that has donated to our fundraiser, thank you sincerely. If you've shared our links, please continue to do so. We can't do this without your help.

We are hard at work over here. This week we recorded our bookclub with special guest Dayton Ward shedding some light into the writing process that went into From History's Shadow and some of the things that make this story different than most other Star Trek books. If you have not read the book yet, please do and don't forget to check out the interview when it gets released soon.

In other news, this weekend is Destination Star Trek, and our intrepid reporter Steve "Midnite Shadow" is in London, braving the throngs of cosplayers and celebrities for the G & T Show. Watch our Twitter ( https://twitter.com/SundayGandT) and Facebook ( https://www.facebook.com/SundayGandT) page for the latest news from DST3. Our convention coverage will continue throughout the weekend.

In other Busy Little Beaver Productions news, Starfinder's second episode ( http://www.ussstarfinder.com/?p=930) is out and work on episodes 3 and 4 is nearing completion and is slated to be released before the end of the year. Supplemental content in the form of a pair of crossover episodes with Gates of Sto'vo'kor is currently in production.

Speaking of Gates of Sto'vo'kor, we have finally returned from our hiatus ( http://www.gatesofstovokor.com/?p=1106). As mentioned above, production on a pair of crossover episodes are underway, but we're also gearing up to begin production on our long awaited third season which will feature nearly twenty episodes. We are excited to get back to work on this project.

Blood of the Neirrh, a Romulan focused audio drama is entering the final stages of pre-production. Our scripts are nearing completion and are currently working on our season finale. More information about this will be made available soon.

And finally, there is the Klingons of Long Island. We are about to start working on a pilot script for this series. We've had alot of fun talking about this during G & T Show and look forward to telling a fun story in this series.

A donation to or a share of this fundraiser, not only supports the G & T Show, but it helps support all of Busy Little Beaver Productions' shows as well. If you are a fan of Star Trek: Starfinder, Gates of Sto'vo'kor, or have heard us talk about Blood of the Neirrh (BON), or the Klingons of Long Island and are interested in them, then please consider throwing your support our way, since we all share resources and all of these projects will benefit from your efforts.

Donate if you can, Share if you can't. And THANK YOU listening.
