Billy Flynn

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 Rejoice! Richmond 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 the University of Phoenix. When he is not gracing the podcasting airways with his comedic stylings, you can find Billy Flynn on Nintendo Switch (Friend Code: 4621 8841 4224), hosting Trivia Nights around the Richmond area, watching movies, reading comics, or just relaxing.

Flynnstress is originally from Maryland, and went to school at George Mason University and the University of Phoenix. The Richmond, VA area is now her home.

Flynnstress was not always a geek; husband, Billy Flynn, got her hooked on favorites like Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Doctor Who, and Firefly. Former Derby Girl, Thistle Hurt, now spends most of her time geeking out the next generation (her daughter MJ) or snuggled up with a book. Flynnstress also loves to travel, watches too much TV, admits to being addicted to Facebook, and is trying to save the earth, one recycled bottle of Coke at a time.
