Caleb

Caleb

"Big Kahuna" / Unbuttoned History Cast

Caleb wants you to know that this is all his fault. See, when he graduated from Film School he wanted to make web shows and things like that–but had no money to buy cameras. So he thought, audio is cheap let’s do that. He got the idea to do a podcast. Surely someone will want to hear him explain history with silly characters and liberal use of four letter words. That podcast became somewhat successful. Then other people wanted to make podcasts so he thought, why not make a network. And here we all are. During the day he works in the A/V department of a local Medical School. In his spare time he’s a pretty mean guitar player, a passable lover and bottom-shelf demagogue. He wants it known that none of this would be possible without his paramour: Rebecca.


Rebecca

Rebecca

"Queen Regent" / BroadCast Host

Rebecca is a general do-er of creative (and handy!) things. She strongly believes in: photoshopping poorly as a comedic device, messy hair, managing people’s expectations as a way of life, and absurdist culture. If you have a question, she probably has an answer. And if she doesn’t have an answer she’ll definitely get you in the right ballpark of where to look for said answer and probably continue to secretly research it for you anyways mostly because she can not help herself. She loves ignorant hip hop and animal based puns.


Ashlee

Ashlee

Small Council Member

Ashlee’s into loudly singing her own renditions of 90s pop songs, telling poorly timed jokes, binge watching documentaries, and hanging out with her cat, Ms. Lydia Deetz. She works in finance but would rather get paid to eat ice cream and read all day.


Chelsea

Chelsea

Small Council Member / BroadCast Host

Chelsea was writing a bio in google docs, but Mike H. deemed it stupid so he wrote up some talking points for her. Chelsea has many jobs. She dresses in colonial garb and gives tours of Boston, she plays DW (a dream role, to be sure) at the local Children’s Museum, and she teaches impressionable youths. Some deem her unkillable because she survived an insanely rare lung injury, but please don’t test this theory. Her current goal is to become a teacher full time. She is a fetch servant to a neurotic corgi named Maestro and she has broken into ancient ruins before.


Conor

Conor

Small Council Member / Staff Photographer

Conor has NO idea on how to write a witty or interesting bio, like at all. This isn’t the first time he’s done bio’s before either, he just has no idea what is funny, entertaining or good enough information to put in these things. So instead he will just list off the things he is good at: Video games, Reading comics, Shooting and editing videos, Taking way too many photos of his dog Nina and putting them on the internet, Being the first person to like someone’s Facebook post, Listening to podcasts, Helping friends make podcasts or other fun projects they want to do, and well um that’s really it probably…..is this a good yet?….No?….Oh ok well maybe next time.


Emma

Emma

Small Council Member / BroadCast Host

Emma does NOT like sharks. She DOES like sushi, dogs, naps, books, history, and women. Men are ok too. Jewelry is the tops. Emma’s dream job is being a professional siren–singing sea shanties to strapping sailors in order to lure them to their watery demises. Until then, she is the only historical tour guide in downtown Boston who sings colonial era protest songs to her tourists. It’s not protecting the President, but it’s pretty fun.


Gabriel

Gabriel

Small Council Member

Noted bon-vivant and known homosexual Gabriel seeks nothing less than the overthrow of the racist, heteronormative, consumerist, colonial patriarchy. He also puts on funny clothes and prances around on stages throughout the Boston area. By day he can often be seen roaming the streets dressed as an 18th century gentleman, gently terrifying visiting tourists. Passions include: researching etymology, watching terrible reality cooking shows, reading the works of Mallory Ortberg, sampling obscure cheeses, and saying hello to dogs. His cat, Margot, is a massive bitch, and his personal hero.


Julia

Julia

Small Council Member / BroadCast Host

Julia is human woman who spends most of her time as a professional colonial lady. When she is not busy convincing tourists to the Boston area that she looks really good for a 258-year-old, she enjoys reading, goat whispering, and being angry about the small things in life.


Michael A.

Michael A.

Small Council Member / Unbuttoned History Cast

Michael is an enigmatic cyberpunk employed by the U.S. Government. When not, according to Emma, protecting the President, Mike enjoys reading Russian history, ogling over the latest tabletop roleplaying game, and building bridges. He absolutely does not live with any cats hell-bent on world domination.


Michael H.

Michael H.

Small Council Member / Unbuttoned History Cast

Michael works as the development associate for a grassroots education nonprofit based in Cambridge, although his main claim to fame is once getting a comment he left on the website of WBUR’s local news show Radio Boston read on air. He always knows exactly whom to blame.


Bird

Bird

Director of Shipping & Complaints

Bird has been a bunny for 6 years and Director of Shipping & Complaints for Rox Labs since day 1. He will happily rip open anything you send us and toss it to the side (filing). He will also listen to your issues but don’t surprised if the response you get is a series of thumps and grunts for your own interpretation.

His interests include: sneaking into rooms when he thinks no one is looking and then running out when they see him, burrowing into blankets, pretending he doesn’t love being pet and kissed but really loving it, leafy greens, hay (timothy), flopping on his side, and sniffing tan dogs.
