The PUNcast crew…

JOE QUICKLE (Co-Host) got started in sci-fi fandom during the original theatrical run of Return of the Jedi. Then became fascinated with the syndicated run of Star Trek TOS. When not in front of the mic or working behind the scenes for Planetary Union Network, he loves to travel with his wife, Megan, and can also sometimes be found having deep philosophical conversations with her about Star Wars as it relates to life. Joe is also an accomplished musician and audiophile being a member of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.
MICHAEL MAY (Co-Host) is a prolific podcaster and a much less prolific writer of comics (and bios). He lives in Saint Paul, Minnesota with his wife, son, and a dog named after a Star Wars character.
