A film critic for over a decade, Aaron has long enjoyed discussing film & television of any genre with fellow fans. In 2010, Aaron decided to venture into the world of podcasting and has been sucked into its vortex ever since. He formed The Hollywood Outsider podcast, which for several years has discussed varying film and TV topics on a weekly basis. He also was the host of the popular 24 Live Another Podcast, as well as a featured host of TV Talk’s Sleepy Hollow. In his new venture Aaron also produces Remake This Movie Right, a podcast that takes movies that have a remake in the works but crafts the story the way they want to see it happen.

Addi Darnell

Host of The Stranger Things Podcast
At age 14, Addi loves singing, shopping, photography, and traveling. She loves writing songs and scripts for movies and shows she probably won’t ever produce. She loves playing video games too. When she grows up she wants to be a singer/actress or maybe a photographer/world traveler but if all else fails, she would enjoy being a teacher.

Cammie Ray

Cammien Ray

Host of Arrow Squad
Cammien Ray has been an Arrow Squad podcast host for the past season and has been talking non-stop for far longer than that. With a background in live theater and villainy, Cammie is always excited to chat about all things superhero, villain, or storytelling in general. Assorted videos, articles, liveshows, interviews, convention adventures, etc. can be found on my social media, which is, surprisingly, /CammienRay on most sites that have been around since after we all killed MySpace.

Clint Golden Spiral Media

Clint Wichert

Co-Founder, Host of Gracepoint Podcast, The Fringe Podcast, Almost Human Podcast, dadhacker
Clint is a podcasting genus. You might say “What kind of Genius doesn’t know how to spell Genius?” But you’d be wrong.  Clint’s cunning combination of science, mumbling, and awkward silence had led the Podcast Speciation Society to create a new Genus of Podcaster:Mumbilius with the unique species Informaticus.  Clint is married to his wife Mandy, and is experimenting with fatherhood with his three test subjects , a.k.a. “his progeny.” Clint holds three degrees in sciency type stuff and regularly tricks people into believing that he knows what he is talking about at his sciency job.

Geoff Gentry

Host of Gotham Undercover, Castle Rock Zone, Stuff I Learned Yesterday
Geoff, aka @xforce11, has been a Whovian since he saw his first episode of the Fourth Doctor’s run on PBS as a kid. He loves helping and serving behind the scenes with technology. That led him to a degree in communications, four years of video work for a mission’s organization, and his current job doing computer work for a school. He enjoys running computer & sound at his church and working behind the scenes for a Christian arts studio. He has been participating in a variety podcasts since season 2 of LOST. Podcasting has connected him people from all over the world including many of in the GSM family. He looks forward to connecting with you.

Jada Wilkerson

Jada Wilkerson

Host of Central City Underground, Don’t Blink
I’ve been in love with science fiction and fantasy forever. When I was a child I just couldn’t stop reading books and comic books and anything that had a great story to tell. My two truest fandoms are Doctor Who and the X-Men, although anything comic and sci-fi related can grab my attention at the drop of a hat. As an unrepentant nerd, I eventually found my way into desktop role-playing games. Over the years and across America and back ,I’ve developed a love for storytelling and worldbuilding. I’m currently in school for computer sciences and hope to go on to be a part of many podcasts to come.

John McGrail

John McGrail

Host of Maid of Steel, Stuff I Learned Yesterday, Triplecast
A Financial Advisor by trade, John’s degree is in Radio, Television, and Motion Pictures so he finally gets the chance to use it correctly as a podcaster! He has been a North Carolinian for his whole life and is thrilled to be married to an amazing lady and they have four pretty awesome kids. His love of all things pop culture originated in 1977 with Star Wars and has only grown since then. A self-admitted superhero junkie, he is longing for the day when his own superpowers are discovered and he has his own part in saving the world. His Golden Spiral Media claim-to-fame is winning second place in the Cutting The Cable Podcast’s Mission Impossible contest, oh, and part-time hosting of Stuff I Learned Yesterday, of course.

Justina Shave

Host of Maid of Steel
Hi. I am Justina. By day I work in a Laboratory preparing specimens to aid in the diagnosis of disease. I began watching Superheroes on the CW. I learned more about these superheroes by listening to podcasts including Maid of Steel. Soon I made super friends. Two of them gave me a new name. I began fluttering from City to City leaving little messages. Now with my partner John aka Silver Vox I seek to bring you all the stories Supergirl has to offer. I aim to uphold the legacy set before me by Karen and Emilee. My mission is to bring laughter and hope to wherever you are. Who am I? I am your eye in the sky Green Butterfly 🙂

Martin Donison

Host of Arrow Squad
Coming to you from the small town of Airdrie, Alberta, just north of Calgary, Martin the Flash started his podcasting journey as a frequent feedbacker to Arrow Squad and a few other podcasts back in the TV Talk days. Teaming up with another feedbacker, Jess aka Harley Quinn, they created the new podcast Tomorrow’s Legends, covering the DC show Legends of Tomorrow, and then later also teaming up with yet another villainess, Cammie, to take over as hosts of Arrow Squad here on GSM. Martin dubs himself an athletic nerd, or sporty geek, which means he equally loves sci-fi, fantasy, superheroes, and tech gear, while also staying in shape playing football, baseball, dodgeball and badminton. He also recently took up disc golf with the love of his life, Patty Spivot (no Iris in the picture for this Flash!) Martin’s favorite shows? Firefly, Spartacus, Magnum P.I., Game of Thrones, Legend of the Seeker, Last Ship and Survivor. And that’s just a few from the list! He knows it makes no sense, it’s all over the map, but loves to talk about any of them, so reach out to the speedster if you’re fast enough.
