About Back of the Cereal Box

Hey there friends & foes! 
Thank you for dropping by to check out our shiny new Patreon page! 

And there came a day, unlike any other day when the question was asked: "Wouldn't be cool to get all your friends together on Saturday morning, eat big bowls of cereal and talk about cool pop culture stuff?"

The answer was yes, and the Back of the Cereal Box podcast was born!

We are about fun. Reliving the adventures of our youth and launching new adventures in our adulthood. The show is FUN. We eat breakfast cereal on the air and wear our pajamas! Imagine a Saturday morning show and tell after a friday night slumber party

It's the only podcast with 8 essential vitamins and minerals!

Let's open the box and see what's inside...

2021 Goals
Ready to take on new challenges and adventures, we have five main goals for 2021:

  1. To grow the Back of the Cereal Box network on YouTube, Apple Podcasts and Spotify and in the summer of 2021 launch our own streamin channel on Roku and Amazon Fire Stick platforms!
  2. To form and promote Cereal Box Comix which will publish the League of Impossibilists and Wytches and Wyrmholes web comics as well as find and promote other artists and web comic projects that align to the network's mission.
  3. Upgrade and maintain studio equipment to provide the best sound and audio production possible, and distribute across as many platforms as possible!
  4. Convention guesting as a podcast/artists/panelists at as many conventions as possible.  
  5. Pay our creators for their time and talent. Right now, creators have the option to secure direct sponsorship for their shows, but we want to remove some of that burden and offer them direct compensation from the network!
