Taekia Blackwell

She is a proud Ravenclaw and NYC resident, and is always willing to talk television, film, and fandom with anyone who will listen.

Leah Cornish

Leah Cornish is a big, big nerd. As a huge fan of podcasts and Supernatural, Extraneous is basically a dream come true. In her free time, you can find her in New York City searching desperately for a group of nerds to play DnD with. Leah is the Content Development Director for Mischief Management, so you can blame her for all the new content coming your way.

Will Redden

Host: His Dark Materials

Will Redden is a Ravenclaw who is psyched that Mischief Management is letting him sit with them. He is passionate about stories and how we tell them, and is excited to dive into His Dark Materials. Will lives in Brooklyn with Melissa and their pasta pup, George.
