Yuri in the Booth
LIVE Show Technical Producer
Our technical guru in the booth each week live on Realityradio101.com. He is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. He keeps the ship flying like McGuyver… all he needs is a bubble gum wrapper and a paper clip. Oh yeah, there is a rumour that he is from New York.
Back Issue Bloodbath Co-Host
Petula started blogging on In a TIFF about the Toronto International Film Festival because after sitting happily alone in the dark for a week and a half every September she found the number of daywalkers asking what movies were good when she got back to work overwhelming. Eventually, she started podcasting because she thought it would be easier than writing. It wasn’t.
When Andrew and Mr. Green need a fill-in co-host this is the man they call. The Tony Stark of Geek Hard, Kris Johnson is a writer, letterer, comic book creator, graphic designer, voice actor and impressionist based out of Pickering, Ontario, Canada. He cannot be slain by any weapon forged by man.
