Meet the Hosts

Eryn Black

Eryn Black used to be a film student, the singer in a rock band, a slot machine technician, and a phlebotomist. It sounds like he used to have a really interesting life. Now, he lives in Manhattan with his family, and works for Jews for Jesus. He also really loves podcasts. Now he's on one.

Isaac Brickner

Isaac likes talking about himself — as he writes this, he realizes it is especially fun to write about himself in the third person. He also likes hearing himself talk, so it was only a matter of time until he recorded a podcast so he could listen to himself all the time. Speaking of recording, he was an audio engineer/producer in his past life in L.A. He still lives in L.A. with his wife and two kids. He works with Jews for Jesus and operates an art space across the street from UCLA called Upside Down.
