About the Miskatonic University Podcast and its Faculty.
Jon is a life-long fan of all things science fiction, fantasy, and horror on television, at the movies, in literature, and in games. He is an avid comic book collector, and has written several comic short stories for independent comics Digital Webbing Presents, Western Tales of Terror, and Dark Horrors. He’s also an avid gamer, starting with the original D&D red box.
Jon has participated in some of Chaosium’s short adventure writing contests, and has had winning entries in both their Cthulhuesque Halloween Contest and BRP Adventure Contest. His winning adventures are “The Faculty Party” in the Plan ’09 From Halloween monograph, “The Lock-In” soon to be published in Chaosium’s 2011 Halloween Contest monograph, “Blood & Badges” in the Blood & Badges monograph (titled after his adventure), and “OPERATION: Mind Storm” in The River of Terror monograph.
Jon also has a full-length Call of Cthulhu adventure soon to be announced and published by a company currently producing licensed adventures. Once the announcement has been made, this biography will be updated with that information.
Jon resides in Shawnee, Kansas, which is part of the Kansas City metropolis. When not spending time with his wife and son, you can find him either at the comic shop or at the table playing games.
Dan has been a fan of science fiction for as long as he can remember. He fell in love with roleplaying games in the summer of 1991 with Call of Cthulhu. That same year, he also was introduced to Amtgard, a live action combat game that has been another passion since that time.
Since discovering podcasts, starting with Yog Radio, Dan has been listening to far too many hours of content. Now he’s decided to cast himself into the audient void by producing the MU Podcast.
Dan resides in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, where he’s usually found in his work room in front of the computer working on this show, or playing Star Wars: The Old Republic while surrounded by shelves with books, DVDs, astromech figures and Transformers.
Murph has been gaming for over twenty years, starting out on AD&D and later 3.5, with a large dose of White Wolf’s Vampire the Masquerade. He was introduced to H.P. Lovecraft and the Cthulhu Mythos along the way which led to The Call of Cthulhu game.
Murph lives in the Piney Woods of East Texas, which is almost entirely devoid of a gaming community, so he plays via Skype of Google Hangouts. He spends his time working from home for a software company and chasing after his four children. You can visit his website at www.edifying-nous.com.
