We present an overview of the GOTHAM (GBT Observations of TMC-1: Hunting Aromatic Molecules) Large Program on the Green Bank Telescope. This and a related program were launched to explore the depth and breadth of aromatic chemistry in the interstellar medium at the earliest stages of star formation, following our earlier detection of benzonitrile ($c$-C$_6$H$_5$CN) in TMC-1. In this work, details of the observations, use of archival data, and data reduction strategies are provided. Using these… Expand
