He is the primary writer behind the book series "Faith & Fandom" and travels to dozens of comicons throughout the year with the books. He is married to a medical nerd named Danyelle and has helped co-create 3 small humans with her that resemble him in appearance and passions.

Matt Warmbier
Co-founder | Chief Outreach Nerd
Matt is the Chief Outreach Nerd and host of the Free Play podcast for Love Thy Nerd. When not bustin’ his rump for LTN, Matt can be found, more than likely, playing Gloomhaven. He and his wife Erin have something like a billion kids, and they all love to be in the woods all the time. If you follow him on Instagram, everything he posts is a day behind. You’ve been warned.
Megan "Mo" Oaks
Co-host of "The Back Row Morning Show", Mo has been an active part of LTN Radio (formerly Back Row Radio) since its inception. Mo is currently working towards her teaching degree. She and her husband Chris have three amazing kids and too many pets to count.
Jon Brady
Jon, who survived eight years of youth ministry before moving into an assistant pastor role, is uniquely gifted with the ability to recollect the most trivial information. However, this comes at the expense of recalling anything important. What he can remember is this: he loves his wife & sons, his tabletop game group, and anything made with po-ta-toes (boil ‘em, mash ‘em, stick ‘em in a stew).
