About Us

Elijah Fleming

Elijah is a PhD candidate in classical archaeology at the University of Texas at Austin, currently writing her dissertation on ancient famine. She has excavated across the world, from the US, the Netherlands, Sicily, and most recently, Romania. Currently, she is watching too many zombie movies, and spreading the good word that Chris Evans peaked in Scott Pilgrim vs the World.

Colin MacCormack

Prior to voicing his opinions on decades-old movies into the void, Colin received his PhD in Classics from the University of Texas at Austin. He now teaches ancient Greek, Latin and mythology, in the Department of Modern Languages & Classics at the University of Alabama. He primarily writes about Greek and Latin literature, namely its whacky, whacky stories about animals. Besides that, he’s an avid film nerd with some serious existential hangups over the Cars franchise and a deep distrust of Waluigi.

Christie Vogler

Christie’s love of Greek mythology goes back to the days of dial-up internet and PBS’s Wishbone. Her Ph.D. from the University of Iowa says Anthropology, but she considers herself an ancient Mediterranean archaeologist with special interest in ancient medicine and women’s lives. Christie serves as co-host, producer, and eternal optimist on the podcast. She tends to give bad films more credit than they deserve, but is quick to drop a few choice curses when warranted.
