101: Spotlight - The Real IT Crowd

John and Orenthal, the latter an IT professional in his daytime identity, discuss the IT life with two others from the field, Heidi Ellis and David Finnerty. † Please take a moment to comment on the episode in our forums or by calling our toll-free number 888-866-9010. † † † † Greetings everyone! I'm Heidi Ellis . When not preventing user meltdowns as a Tech Ninja at my day job, I'm spending a lot of time swearing at my laptop as I work on my current novel. I hope to be a published author when I grow up, and I hang out with other disreputable artist and writer types, hoping some of their sparkly genius will rub off on me. I'm a huge fangirl of vampire movies and genre television, both classic and new. You can also find me blasting a variety of obnoxious music genres. Probably accompanied by flaily Goth dancing. You have been warned. I'm a sucker for graphic novels (Gaiman, Moore, Miller, etc). I read constantly and usually will have my nose buried in something dark, scary or disturbing at any given time. Currently I live in Northwest Indiana with my stained glass artist husband, Brian & our two cats, Fern & Snoots. † † Hello all, I'm David Finnerty . †I am the webmaster, or code monkey for this endeavor. In my secret identity† I am the IT director for a company†in New Jersey, but at lunch and after hours I turn into Code Monkey!!!!† Able to build sites in a single "meh"!!!† I went to high school with† Judy ,† Keith , and† John . So basically I sit in an office, never see sunlight, and type until my fingers are raw so that you can have a site to go along with the podcast.† All I ask is that you wipe your feet before you come in, but no you have to track mud all over my beautiful site.† Sorry lack of sleep...

96: Roundtable - British SF TV

John and Judy co-chair this discussion on British science fiction television with fan Lisa Sullivan and British Invaders †co-host Brian Doob. †Please take a moment to comment on this episode in our forums or by calling us at 888-866-9010. † Lisa Sullivan† received her MA in Early Church History from the University of Georgia and completed several years of doctoral studies in the same subject at Union Theological Seminary in New York City. Prior to her one genre publication (as co-author of a story in the Star Trek New Frontier: No Limits anthology) she wrote for the academic journals Semeia and Studia Patristica , and presented papers at conferences in her field both nationally and internationally. She has no idea how she ended up writing for Star Trek, but figures if itís good enough for Dr. Marc Okrand, itís good enough for her. Lisa is a long-time fan of Doctor Who , which was her gateway drug into the fascinating world of British SF television. She currently works in the New York City office of a British Medical Communications company, and alternately impresses/frightens her colleagues by knowing whatís going to be on BBC Three before they do.† † Brian Doob lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and is the co-host of the British Invaders †podcast. He works as a software developer and technical support person for the Government of Canada. He enjoys singing in choirs and working with computers. He has been watching British Science Fiction Television since the late 1980s and insists that the Andromedans should have been the Daleks. † Podcast Promos † Sonic Newsdriver Podquiz British Invaders 60 Second Science - How to Pour Champagne Doctor Who Podshock
