|Podcastings’s RICH SIGFRIT
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 Star Wars podcast (RotO), the first podcast for an Independent Wrestling Federation (Halo: Hardwired), and distributed the first comicbook made available via podcast feed (Podcast 9). I was the force behind the official Troma Podcast and a former host/editor of the 501stCast, the official podcast of the 501st Stormtrooper Legion. I co-wrote, with Davey Beauchamp, the Amazing Pulp Adventures Radio Show starring Mister Adventure Script book, with its second volume debuting soon. Along with his writing talents, Davey and I have been doing Mister Adventure via podcast and live on stage for the past 5 years. I have also done commercial voice work as the voice of CRASH and SWE Wrestling, Volaris phone systems, and Howards RV. I have MC’d numerous events at various cons, and am a host for Wise Entertainment, a traveling Trivia company. Between the podcasts, requested voices from other shows, and father of 3, various audio sketches and dramas have been heard on ChronoRadio, Star Wars and Beyond, SwitchedOn Show, the Geeklabel Podcast and Dragon Pages’ Wingin’ It syndicated show, (plus countless guest appearances on other shows) of which I am very proud.
In my spare time, I sleep. I can be heard regularly on Geek Radio Daily.

|EARL NEWTON I am the former co-host of Requiem of the Outcast. Here’s what I did before that: I started life as a writer, writing a weekly column called “Pre-Natal Post-Script”. Then I was born. Beat that, Orson Welles. When I was 16, I moved into audio dramas, and by 17 I was writing for the screen. At 18, I started directing my own films. At 23, I went on my first film tour around the country, which is where I met Rich Sigfrit. Rich and I became fast friends, swapping advice and ideas about the Internet Multimedia Experience (patent pending). He got hooked on my work, I got hooked on Requiem of the Outcast. (We are, in the end, mutual enablers) When Ron and Janine Garner, beloved co-hosts of RotO, had to move on to other adventures in a galaxy far, far away, Rich invited me to step in as the new co-host, and I jumped at it. So, to recap: here’s what I do now: Now I have my own production company, I am the delighted host of Requiem of the Outcast, and I write comic books for Particle9 Productions.
I am also one of the writers/producers/directors/creators of Stranger
Things. The only Sci Fi Podcast filmed in HD. Check out all of his awesome work at edwardearlnewton.com
