So here are the main players in the Escape Artists org chart.  I'm sure I have overlooked, mis-spelt, or otherwise messed things up, but it seemed like a good place to start.  Please provide any corrections or additional info.




Edited: made corrections as of 04/07/11

Podcastle also has a sound editor who has remained unnamed, and you have Bdoomed moderating the wrong board.

I Twitter. I also occasionally blog on the Escape Pod blog, which if you're here you shouldn't have much trouble finding.

I've been trying to get that Sound Editor gig for a while now. *grin* Not the only one, but one of the people on staff.

So, where does Jeremiah Tolbert fit in as "Managing Editor of Escape Pod" (Ep:190)? Somewhere near the top of the left root? (It forks down, so it's not a "branch")

I feed The Pod.

Inara works for Escape Artists generally, not just Escape Pod.

Also, Matt Arnold works for Escape Artists generally. I might put them on their own separate branch.

And yeah, as I understand it, Jeremy would "rank" under Steve.

Matt came onboard to do administrative stuff for the podcasts, but I think he's moved more specifically into mailings and working with the CDs... I'm not totally sure what his duties are now, to be honest. Maybe he'll poke in and tell us. :)

EA also has an official tech person now, though come to think of it, I don't know his name.

I looked up the Pseudopod slush reader's name, though, and it's Ellen Allen.

Inara has a general exotic feel, and Deluna could mean "of the moon". 

Cat Rambo is John's sister Kate.

Ezerebet Yellowboy sounds like an insult for some mixed race Asian kid.

Matt Arnold mainly runs poddisc.com, so you can purchase archive discs of EA podcasts (and increasingly many other podcasts as well).  "Inara De Luna" is three names, technically.  Other spellings: Jeremiah Tolbert and Ben Phillips (two L's).  Pseudopod as of fairly recently has a second slush reader, Shawn Garrett.  Also on the administrative wing is Paul Haring, accountant, and Rob Wynne, system administrator.  Steve Eley, as president and owner, probably goes beside me or something since you can't really outrank the guy who owns the place.

I would have just modified the post for you but it was too hard to get my text editor to cooperate properly.  :(  And anyway I don't know how all that will fit.  All the administrative-wing crew (Inara, Paul, Rob, and Matt) are all directly under me with no real relative ranking -- although you're more than welcome to make one up if it's easier that way.

Are you sure? Didn't that happen in The Ant King?

Uh oh.  Jeremiah is spelled "Jerimiah" on the org chart.  Can you please tell me if the spelling in the org chart is correct or a typo?  I just sent a submission to him, and if the org chart spelling is correct, I need to a) send an apology to him for my misspelling and b) ask ralan.com to fix the spelling error in his submission listing.

Hmm

OK, Ive finally updated this thing.  Again, if I got something wrong, let me know.  Yes, I know there was an announcment about Jeremiah stepping down from EP, but I'm still in denial.

Yeah, I've been meaning to get to that.  Thanks for the boot.  It is nice to know somebody looks at this once in a while.

Is Norm Sherman still officially a co-host?  He's done a few lately, and I hope that continues.
