SciFiFX began in what would have been one man’s basement, if that man could have afforded a basement. From such humble beginnings, a small group of incredibly loud-mouthed geeks assembled, their egos spinning wildly out of control, causing a fracture in cyberspace that allowed toxic amounts of their thoughts and opinions to spew forth to their fans… both of them. Now armed with a website, a podcast, a titanium spork, and a deluded sense of self-importance, the crew of SciFiFX is dedicated to bringing you their closest approximation of the best of science fiction / fantasy news, information, and commentary from across the interwebs… and offering their two dollars whether you like it or not.
Name: Matt McIntosh
Function: Fearless Leader / Podcast Host / Web Wizard/ Producer / Writer
Matt is a recent addition to the world of sci-fi fandom, but as with so many other endeavors he’s stumbled upon by accident, he’s become addicted. As near as anyone can tell, his obsession began with Babylon 5 , followed by trips through Stargate SG-1 and Farscape . It was all downhill from there. It is feared electroshock may be needed after The Cape and Arrow.
Name: Carl Goad
Function: Group Mediator / Podcast Host / Web Wizard
In these uncertain times of reboots, remakes, and re-imaginings, Carl boldly goes forth where purists fear to tread. He freely admits to watching nearly anything sci-fi, even if only to mock it with a sinister grin. A fan of MST3K and Highlander , he has burned through nearly every sci-fi classic you can name. His loyalties, however, belong first and foremost to Doctor Who .
Name: Jeremy “Big Dog” Scott
Codename: Black Adam
Function: Graphic Artist / Podcast Host / Writer Extraordinaire
It’s said that with great power comes great responsibility. Big Dog wields neither, but he smiles about it all the same. Triumphantly claiming a face for radio and a voice for silent movies, he offers his unique perspective to round out the group and polish up our visuals. “Epic” is the name of the game in his world, whether he’s supporting Superman, Supernatural , or any one of the “Star” franchises.
Name: Troy Rodgers
Function: Production Coordinator / Editor / Podcaster / Writer
This fanboy’s first memory of life was Star Wars — on the big screen, opening day. Thus irrevocably twisted by the hand of Darth Lucas himself, he marches forth into the world accompanied by the themes of John Williams, spreading random acts of fandom in his wake. Strong in the Force is this one, if only he could pick a side.
