Tee Morris

Tee MorrisTee Morris has been writing science fiction, fantasy, horror, and non-fiction for over a decade. His first novel, Morevi: The Chronicles of Rafe & Askana, became the first novel to be podcast in its entirety, ushering in a new age for authors—podcasting. He went on with Evo Terra to write Podcasting for Dummies (as well as the 2nd Edition alongside Chuck Tomasi). His expertise reached deeper into social media when he penned on his own All a Twitter and Sams Teach Yourself Twitter in 10 Minutes.

In 2011, Tee returned to fiction with the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences series, penned with his wife, Pip Ballantine. The series and its short fiction podcast, Tales from the Archives, has won several awards including the 2014 Parsec Award for Best Science Fiction Anthology Podcast, the 2011 Airship Award for Best Steampunk Literature, and RT Reviews’ Choice Awards for Best Steampunk of 2014. In 2016, Tee and Pip released the fifth book in the series, The Ghost Rebellion; the first book in a new spin-off series, The Curse of the Silver Pharaoh; and the unexpected novella of erotic ridiculousness and hidden messages from Ministry Command, Countless Hues of Crimson. And somewhere in the middle of all that, Tee and Pip released with Writer’s Digest the go-to, how-to book, Social Media for Writers. In 2017, he reunites with Chuck Tomasi for the third edition of Podcasting for Dummies and brings his steampunk adventures to a close with Operation: Endgame.

Tee and Pip also host The Shared Desk, a podcast covering collaboration and other aspects of a writer’s lifestyle. He enjoys a writer’s life in Virginia alongside Pip, his daughter, and three cats. Explore the works of Tee Morris, and his occasional geek rants, at TeeMorris.com.

The Wonderful Billy Flynn brings the funny every day on Geek Radio Daily! His daytime alter ego is a mild-mannered (well, that part is a stretch) radio station personality at WREJ in Virginia. He actually gets paid to sit on his butt and run his mouth! His “edumacation” is from UNC-Wilmington, the Columbia School of Broadcasting, and University of Phoenix. When he is not gracing the podcasting airways with his comedic stylings, you can find Billy Flynn gaming on the Switch, watching movies, reading comics, and geeking out his little girl.

Flynnstress brings a sultry, feminine voice to GRDsWeekly and the Geek Radio Daily show. Flynnstress is originally from Maryland, and went to school at George Mason University and University of Phoenix. The Richmond, VA area is now her home. She helps teachers integrate 21st century skills in the classroom with inspiring ed tech.

Rich Sigfrit

Rich SigfritTo say that I enjoy podcasting and new media would be a gross understatement. My credits include mentions in high school and collegiate papers, newspapers, Podcasting for Dummies, and Advanced Podcasting Tricks. I have been called an innovator, having created the first fandom podcast (RotO), the first podcast for an Independent Wrestling Federation (Halo: Hardwired), and distributed the first comic book made available via podcast feed (Podcast 9). I was the force behind the official Troma Podcast and a former host/editor of the 501stCast, the official podcast of the 501st Stormtrooper Legion. I produced the long-running Amazing Pulp Adventures Radio Show starring Mister Adventure, serving as writer and primary voice actor for recorded and live stage versions. I served as the Technical Editor for the most recent (3rd) edition of Podcasting for Dummies. Currently, I am co-host on the long running Geek Radio Daily podcast.

I’m a Whovian, Star Wars fan, and am known to watch the occasional episode of the Handsome Brothers Ghostbusting Power Hour known as Supernatural. You’ve probably seen me at a con as the Master of Ceremonies or on a panel about podcasting (I started podcasting in ’03, for Pete’s sake!). You may have seen my alter ego, Richie Muenster on a burlesque stage as an emcee for Creativity Out Of Context (an art collective which I co-founded with Sarah Jynnx), the Succubus Sorority, or the Riot Kittens and formerly Nerd-Vana and Vaudevillain Revue (I keep my clothes on, I’ve read the petition). I am the current reigning 3rd place champion of SparkCon’s Pun Tournament, like long walks on the beach and my turn-ons are metal bikinis, goth girls, and Nathan Fillion.
