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 nyssahamilton.blogspot.com and tumbles often at nyssahamilton.tumblr.com.

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!
