KS-16 Stephen D. Sullivan [LISTEN]  
Hi! My name is Stephen D. Sullivan, and I’ve been working professionally in fantasy publishing as an author, artist, and editor since 1980. I was a TSR editor and artist during the early days of Dungeons & Dragons, and I helped found Pacesetter Ltd., creators of CHILL and a bunch of other award-winning games. Over the years, I’ve written and created art for some of the best known properties in the world including Star Wars, The Simpsons, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Iron Man. For the past 25 years, I’ve been a freelancer most of the time (though I’ve occasionally taken a staff position to help pay the bills). I co-hosted Uncanny Radio — where I was known as “Manwolf” — with my friend Linda Godfrey, and nowadays I make occasional appearances on Vince Rotolo’s B-Movie Cast podcast.

KnowShitCast Team:

HOST: Matt Frazier

(Matt Frazier: Owner and Leading Host of KnoW-Shit)
I talk about stuff I think is interesting... I am an Automation Engineer, a Musician, and student of life. I love talking to people about unusual subjects and topics especially after a few adult beverages. There are no scripts and no limits - Just people talking honestly and openly about topics they care about. I never know what is going to happen! My name is Matt… This is my Podcast…

Co-Host: Eric Smith

(Eric D. Smith: Co-host & The Gray Wizard of History)
Resting assured of the long-term victory begun in 1969 in Columbus Ohio, Eric set out to further explore the outside world as well as the inside world. This however, proved to be very distracting. Somewhere in the mid-2010s another random decision was made. This resulted in a firm move from the former autodidact to, as of this writing, being a senior in good standing at Ohio University, majoring in History with a minor in Philosophy. When not concerned with his education or activating a Casting, he occasionally engages in producing music, or running various table-top games. It is rumored that in the distant past, Eric was a professional physic.

Curator / Producer: TangenT D. Noir

(TangenT D. Noir: Phantom Co-Host & Web Project Daemon)
I am behind the scenes making sure all of the web and team shiz works and is as well connected as can be. I am The Collaborative Project Manager for KnowShitCast and The Owner and Founder of it's parent site TheXFactory.com :: Creative Network. As the web host, developer, and supplementary promoter via this allied website "KnowShitCast.com", I represent the integral glue here.

Team Personal Notes

TangenT D. Noir personal notes:
To quote the character "John 'Hannibal' Smith" from the 1980's television show "The A-Team", "I love it when a plan comes together". I sincerely love taking something from humble beginnings to helping it grow in to well - SOMETHING. Honestly, I'm pretty sure that this is some kind of strange paternal mentoring thing left over from a previous life time. However, I won't get in to that. This "short" bio is going to be long enough. You should know that I tend to use way too many words to communicate simple concepts. However, I wouldn't have it any other way - as I find it necessary to reduce margins of error and the back and forth aspects of human digital communications. I also do this because I've found it necessary to try to understand as much about and idea which I have and how others will absorb it before I even present the idea from the start. I digress: This bio, however, was not one of these ideas. So it did require a lot of tweaking. Sorry for the divergence. Thus, hopefully decreasing the confusing and time consuming back and forth dialogue which tends to occur with human creatures in a digital world. I honestly don't have time for the confusion. Responses to my proposals or ideas are usually words and phrases such as... "Yes"(details follow), "No"(details follow), "I agree...", "I don't agree..."(tells me why), "let me think on it"(and they do think about it and get back to me), "I'll get back to you with an answer soon"(and they do), "Here are my ideas on what you've presented... What do you think.."(and I actually think about their contributions in full context with my previously stated ideas), "Sounds good!", and my personal favorite "That doesn't suck, let's do it man!!!!". I believe that this is why Matt Frazier, Eric D. Smith and I work so well together. In the end, it's worth the time that I put into creating the initial thoughts when communicating. They seem to understand this quirkly yet really important RESPECTFUL control issue within my character which I believe is required by at least one person within any group to get shiz done.

P.S: Sorry that this is so long. But honestly, I think you understand me from at least a work ethic perspective now. I'm sure it's because I took the time to type all of this out. So, I'm just a little less sorry than I would be if you didn't understand more about me before I started typing this long freakin' run on paragraph. HA!

Peace.
