Glenn is not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be. The Glenn that you know, they had some second thoughts. Glenn's come back to reclaim some infinitude of silence, the unspeaking of their name. At PTBN they're most often seen walking the web, covering the Star Trek beat, and podcasting about various manifestations of life and popular culture. Find him elsewhere on the Twitter, the Insta and/or the Tumblr. Tamp 'em up solid.
