Timmie is a vocalist, pianist, and teacher that podcasts and writes about media in her spare time. She’s hoping to incorporate both of her passions in an endeavor she’s calling Lost: The Musical. Official release date TBD.


Michael, always thought to spend too much time watching TV, reading books, playing video games, and looking up random facts on the internet, has finally decided to put his plethora of seemingly useless information to good use in audio format. He co-hosted a very successful 10 episode run of a video game show called the Go!Cast and loves to get involved in long-winded and deep discussions on media. He lives alone with his turtle, Squirt, and they play Cranium every Thursday night. Michael always wins.


Ryan is a picture/sound editor. You can see some of his work over at Scruffy.TV as well as two documentaries in progress, We Breathe Again and American Communion. When he isn’t editing, Ryan enjoys watching films with his canine and feline sons, Ewan and Figaro. He becomes frustrated when they choose to screen Glee over Godard.
