About

The ‘Fans of’ mission is to share passion with our audience; what we care deeply about — an issue, hobby or lifestyle choice — those captivating zests that bring us joy. Welcome to the Fans of Podcast.

The Fans of Network began as a Facebook page in May of 2012, at the time it was simply a Meme page centered around the Cincinnati Rollergirls, and the sport of roller derby called “Fans of Cincinnati Rollergirls”

In August of 2017 the “Fans of Podcast” debuted with hosts Thadd Scott and Brandon Barb. Episode 1: Fans of Mama Crass was the beginning of our adventure. The mission was to catalog stories and events of roller derby players, officials, and staff mainly the Cincinnati Rollergirls

April 2018 brought a change to the hosting lineup. Brandon Barb stepped away to pursue other interests but has come back a time or two to talk. Cincinnati Rollergirl, and friend of Thadd’s ‘Royal T’ took over and hit the ground running co-hosting her first show “Episode 16: Fans of Quad Almighty”

The only certainty in life is change, and in September 2020 following Thadd and Royal T’s departure from roller derby, coupled with the COVID pandemic, we felt the need to take the show in a new direction. Our renewed purpose is to share passion with our audience, and through our guests, we experience what they love and champion.
