Scott Hertzog – A teacher and lover of all things science fiction (well, most things anyway), he remembers three defining moments in his scifi career. When he was six, he remembers watching Jules Verne’s Mysterious Island on a little black and white TV and the big bees totally wigging him out. Later, he had a librarian at his middle school hand him a copy of Andre Norton’s Galactic Derelict; it radically changed his life. From then on he consumed all the science fiction he could get his hands on. And the third thing was, well, starting his first educational podcast under the tutelage of Charlie Reisinger. He later went on to create the long running SciFi Diner Podcast which he co-hosts with Miles P. McLoughlin and M. Sieiro Garcia. He is an avid Star Wars fan of both the films and the extended universe and also is infatuated with J.R.R. Tolkien, Terry Brooks, Robert Jordan, and George R. R. Martin. Being a family man, he watches and reads as much science fiction as that can allow, mostly when running.
David Moulton – Horticulturist by trade, florist by hobby, broadcast journalist by career, but above all a passionate conversationalist. David credits his Aunt Ronnie for getting him started as a science fiction lover before he knew any better. Having grown up on a heavy dose of Star Trek and similar shows and books, his enjoyment of the genera only continues to grow. Discovering the Dune series roughly 15 years ago he quickly read through the original series and has been reading the new releases as they come out almost without fail, citing the black sheep of the series God Emperor of Dune as his favorite book. No stranger to the world of podcasting he hosts and produces his own weekly show, The Lancast. Focusing on people making a difference in their community both locally and abroad the show has lead David to many interesting and fun people such as Scott and Jim.
