The Wonderful Billy Flynn brings the funny every day on Geek Radio Daily! His daytime alter ego is 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 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.
The Flynnstress brings a sultry, feminine voice to Mondays on 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 #LifeReady skills in the classroom with inspiring ed tech. 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.

In the mountains of central Appalachia, blood runs as deep as these hollers and just as dark. Since before our kind knew these hills, hearts of unknowable hunger and madness have slumbered beneath them. These are the oldest mountains in the world. How dare we think we can break the skin of a god and dig out its heart without bringing forth blood and darkness?
Old Gods of Appalachia is a horror-anthology podcast set in the shadows of an Alternate Appalachia, a place where digging too deep into the mines was just the first mistake.
Steve Shell is the creator and voice of Old Gods of Appalachia as well as a host for the Moth Story SLAM in Asheville, NC.
To 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 via podcast feed (Podcast 9). I was the force behind the official Troma Podcast and host/editor for the 501stCast. 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 (geekradiodaily.com) and a variety streamer (twitch.tv/richiemuenster).
You’ve probably seen me Emcee or panelling about Podcasting (I started podcasting in ’03). You may have seen my alter ego, Richie Muenster on stage for CooC, Boomstick Burlesque, the Succubus Sorority, The Riot Kittens and formerly of Nerd-Vana, NC Performers Society and Vaudevillain Revue. My turn-ons are metal bikinis, goth girls, and Nathan Fillion.
