Nicole Wright
Super Geeked Up Host
Los Angeles

Nicole has always had a passion for entertainment. When she was in her early teens, she produced three annual back-to-school fashion shows for the neighborhood kids and during her senior year in High School she created an original character, "Bergetha the Bunny," for the School’s Spring production that got her notice for a college scholarship! She attended Chapman University's Dodge College of Film and Media Arts where she produced and directed numerous short films. Most recently Nicole has directed and produced season one of the award-winning web series "Progress" about a steam-powered Internet in the Victorian era. You can also catch Nicole on the weekly geek talk show "Super Geeked Up" where she tends to obsess over spin-kicks, The Matrix, Luna Lovegood, Lollipop Chainsaw and Unicorns.

Tonya Dodds
Super Geeked Up Host
Toronto

Tonya's metamorphosis into a geek began with Dana Scully. She quickly realized that some of the most creative storytelling came from the world of sci-fi and fantasy; that she too could play a vampire slayer, a Viper pilot, or skeptic doctor. As an actress, Tonya has always loved finding characters that challenge her. As a producer, she is working to bring stories and characters to life that excite her as much as her first introduction to sci-fi. She is currently co-producing her first feature film which combines some of her favourite things: vampires, strong characters, and lots of butt-kicking. She is passionate about film and TV and has a goal to bring film productions off the beaten path. You can see her in Asset, playing a slightly evil ex-spy, in various short films, and co-hosting Super Geeked Up, where she defends all things BSG and Joss Whedon.

Why Crazy TV Talk?
We love great content and some of the best content that is coming out these days was made for TV viewers. As we all know, you don't have to be a slave to the network's timing anymore because you can download almost anything (new or old) from services like Youtube, Amazon, Netflix and many more. The problem is finding great content without waist our precious time sifting trough the crap. SO that's why we created CTT and we're having a blast finding and watching some amazing shows and I hope you are getting a kick out of our podcast too.
