The Wonderful Billy Flynn brings the funny each week on Geek Radio Daily! His daytime alter ego is mild-mannered (well, that part is a stretch) radio station personality at WLEE 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 Xbox Live (flynn71), rockin’ out on Guitar Hero or Rock Band, watching movies, reading comics, working out, or posting on the forums at geekradiodaily.com (ding!). email

Flynnstress brings a sultry, feminine voice to GRDsWeekly and occasionally the Geek Radio Daily show. Flynnstress is originally from Maryland, and went to school at George Mason University and University of Phoenix. The Richmond, Virginia area is now her home. She helps teachers integrate 21st century 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. You can most likely find her playing roller derby with the River City Rollergirls 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 can of Coke at a time. email

Podcasting’s Rich Sigfrit has been there since the beginning, deep in the shadows. He’s a new Whovian, Star Wars fan, Whedonist and is known to watch the occasional episode of the Handsome Brothers Ghostbusting Power Hour known as Supernatural. You’ve probably seen him at a con as the Master of Ceremonies or on a panel about podcasting (he starting podcasting in ’03, for Pete’s sake!). You may have seen his alter ego, Richie Muenster on a burlesque stage as an emcee (he keeps his clothes on, he’s read the petition). PRS is also the current reigning 3rd place champion of SparkCon’s Pun Tournament, likes long walks on the beach and his turn-ons are metal bikinis, goth girls and Nathan Fillion. FACEBOOK or email.

The Cinemistress, Carol the Cat, hails from the mountains of Colorado (she doesn’t speak of her early years in New Jersey) where she grew up devouring all things Tolkien, Star Trek, Star Wars, Doctor Who (the old stuff, please) and lots of horror movies. After a brief time on the road (she swears she never picked up any questionable hitchhikers), she settled in North Carolina where she worked for the Carolina and Arizona Renaissance Festivals for a large chunk of her life. She also served for several years as the Programming Director for ConCarolinas, where she learned to herd geeks and guests. Besides doing movie reviews for GRD, you can find her on the Guardians of the Geekery podcast and doing her own stuff on her website – purplehairedpixie.com. If she’s not podcasting, crafting, eating fire or reading – you can probably find her at the movie theater. Her favorite film is Seven Samurai..no wait, it’s Alien..or maybe Psycho..or it could be The Shining. Look, she likes movies, don’t make her choose.

The Bell began its career in 1938 at the Ardmore Public Library in South Dakota when Miss Lydia Edmons acquired it for patrons to get her attention when she was in the back workroom. The Bell served this role faithfully until 1974 when the Library was closed due to the dwindling population in the town. Roger Edmons, Miss Lydia’s grand nephew, kept the Bell in her memory, and displayed it on his desk at his insurance agency office in Hot Springs, South Dakota, where his father had relocated when it became clear that Ardmore was in decline.

When Roger retired in 1998, fed up with the bleak winters, he moved with his wife Susan to Cave Creek, Arizona. They sold nearly everything they had, including the Bell, which was picked up by Ginny Albertson, an interior designer for bistros, diners, and boutique shops.

The Bell sat in a storage facility for several months, before eventually being placed on the counter of the Sloppy Joe’s Inn, located on US-301 near Port Royal, Virginia. It was still there on [redacted date] when Billy Flynn stopped in for a cup of coffee and a slice of pie. Some days later, a few regular patrons noticed the Bell was no longer on the counter. It wasn’t missed all that much, since no one bothered to use it.

The Bell has been happily ringing endorsements for Geek Radio Daily and other fine websites ever since.

Retired Hosts

Saucy joined the GRD Crew after having receiving an upgrade to full member from Intern status.  He likes Doctor Who, Western movies, binge watching shows on Netflix late at night, and cooking/experimenting in the kitchen…most of the time with delicious results.  Saucy now calls Richmond, VA home, but he originally hails from Roanoke.  He is also interested in fishing, foraging, and being outdoors.  You can find Saucy at conventions like Mysticon and Ravencon, and if you see him there you should buy him a drink…but not The Kraken.  And, yes, despite the baby face he is old enough to legally consume alcohol.  So, get to know Saucy and you’re in for seriously good times, with a side of some hilarious shenanigans.

The Bruce held the third chair on the weekend show, GRD Weekly. Bruce went to Virginia Commonwealth University studying Exercise Science with a minor in Physiology. When he isn’t at the gym, either working out himself or training a client, you can find him at home with The Wife and his three step-children. Bruce has been a geek for a long as he can remember.  He even still owns a Star Trek uniform from his misplaced youth. He is a big fan of television, movies, and music. Bruce tries to bring a little bit a sanity to the show and his knowledge of health and fitness to help keep all the geeks out there around and ready to take over the world.
