Brian Brushwood puts the "BB" in the "BBpedia". Starting out as a stage magician touring around the country, Brian gained a large internet following through his podcasts. He now hosts a half-dozen podcasts including Scam School, NSFW, Weird Things, Frame Rate and more.
Justin got his start in the newspaper business and eventually transitioned to the internet. He currently runs the one of the largest magic blogs on the internet, iTricks.com, as well as WeirdThings.com. He interviewed Brian for iTricks and quickly became friends and co-hosts.
Tom Merritt is nothing less than a podcasting legend. He started out as a producer for TechTV's "The Screen Savers" and now hosts a bevy of tech and geek-oriented podcasts including Tech News Today, Sword and Laser, FSL Tonight and Frame Rate.
Brett made a name for himself through the "Amtrekker" project. He came up with a list of 50 things he had always wanted to do and then left his home and job to accomplish everything on the list. Even though it wasn't on his list, he also became good friends with Brian and Justin and is the most frequent guest in the BBverse podcasts.
Andrew Mayne is considered one of magic's most prolific creators. He, along with Justin Robert Young, runs iTricks.com and WeirdThings.com and is the host of the Weird Things Podcast. On top of all this he still finds time to write sci-fi novels.
