Fan podcast pages[edit]

I am not so sure I agree with fan podcasts getting their own full-fledged wiki pages, when other fan-made projects are simply listed as links on the TMBG Websites page. Seems inconsistent and without real cause. --Self Called Nowhere (talk) 01:41, 18 November 2020 (EST)

There's precedent for it; Theynow has had a TMBW page since 2005. Considering the two most prevalent fan podcasts now (DLS and TMBP) have had multiple interviews with current and past band members and other individuals in TMBG's orbit, I personally think they're well-deserving of pages. DLS episodes/interviews have been a primary source of information for TMBW song page trivia multiple times at this point. -CapitalQtalk ♪ 09:57, 18 November 2020 (EST)
personally i'm not sure they need entire pages (and i include theynow in this). i feel like meaty sections on a [[Fan Podcasts]] page would be sufficient. just my 2¢. --ant 12:27, 18 November 2020 (EST)
As I'm the one who created the pages, I do think they merit having their own pages, especially as this enables them to show up linked from this very page. I was unaware of the existence of two of these podcasts until fairly recently, and I can't be the only one. That said, I think also listing the podcasts on the TMBG Websites page might be good, as well as perhaps making a more general [[Podcasts]] page with separate sections for Official and Fan podcasts. This may also be a good page to link to TMBG appearances on other podcasts, like on Marc Maron, after they scroll off the front page. Mongoose (talk) 01:22, 19 November 2020 (EST)
