About Us

Elijah Fleming

Elijah got her PhD in classical archaeology at the University of Texas at Austin, and is currently an assistant professor in the Academic Writing and Learning Center at the University of Minnesota, Duluth. She wrote her dissertation on ancient famine and excavated across the world, from the US, the Netherlands, Sicily, and most recently, Romania. She watches too many zombie movies, and continues to spread 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 classical languages and literature at Smith College in Northampton, MA. He primarily writes about animals in ancient literature, along with pop-culture receptions of antiquity. 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.
