About the Author:

Host and senior producer Dale McGladdery began his co-op journey in 2014 when he joined the show. He came from the podcasting world to explore an interest in radio and happily discovered the world of co-ops hiding in plain sight. Dale’s day-job in the technology sector also means he’s the most likely one to be updating WordPress plugins. When he’s not working on the show you might find him playing board games, watching B-Movies, or attending live storytelling events around town.
