The Benview Network

The Benview Network is a collection of podcasts started by Emily Schmemily and Andrew Linde in 2013 when they decided to combine forces and fight evil. The first Benview production was shut up, leonard. Since then Radio BrendoMan, The Pillagecast, and Comic Nerds Unite have gone from unincorporated to part of the Benview Network. Midnight Marinara is also a Benview original featuring David King's adaptations of creepypastas. Pick Your Path is the first "choose your own adventure" style podcast and a Benview production. We at Benview are always looking for the next big thing in podcasts. All of our podcasts are free to download and are also available in the iTunes Store.

Dinner Party Small Talk

Dinner Party Small Talk is a comedy and review podcast written, produced, and performed by Matt Graham and Nyssa Hamilton.
Matt Graham was born in 1986 to two middle-class white folk in the city of Brisbane, QLD, Australia. He WAS bullied as a child, but prefers to think that his sense of humour developed not as a coping mechanism, but as a natural by-product of reasonably high intelligence and a general awareness of the world's inherent absurdity. He is a voice actor, body actor, musician, singer, writer, and avid masturbator. If you are Matt's parents and are reading this, then ignore that last sentence.
Nyssa Hamilton is an actor and writer who can't seem to stay in any one single country. She enjoys lactose free chocolate milk and baking to relieve anxiety. She rarely, but sometimes, will post her thoughts at and tumbles often at

Grissom on the Run

Grissom on the Run is the Atlanta Braves from a fans perspective. The show, hosted by Matthew Esposito, is a display of adoration for the Atlanta Braves but also is a means to develop his broadcast journalism skills. GOTR deems that no topic is unimportant and thus dissects all facets of the Braves: from Julio Tehran praise—analysis of Freddie Freeman’s dancing skills—to the continual Fredi Gonzalez hotseat rumors. Grissom on the Run is always here to chop!

Radio Brendoman

Brendo likes to talk a lot. He started recording himself talking when he was living in China in 2004 and he put it on the internet and for some reason people liked it. He then invited some of his friends from his website,, to join him. Then he stopped for awhile. Then he joined the show Bagged & Boarded as a co-host and he liked doing that a lot. Then he and Derick Armijo got their own show called Pop Sickles. That was cool too but Brendo always wanted to do a show with his best friend Phil. So he brought back Radio BrendoMan and now you are here reading this when you should be listening to the show. So go do that. Thanks.
