I am Richard “Boomzilla” Pippen, the captain of the OZD ship. I live in South Louisiana with my wife, and two children who are just buckets full of awesome. We have three cats who are lucky I am not in charge of naming them. Once upon a time I was the Dungeons and Dragons kid in high school, and I still like to buy and read through RPG rule books when new editions come out even though I don’t really play anymore. I am also a writer. I started writing short fiction when I was still in junior high school and I am currently working on a series of SciFi espionage novels. Having always been passionate about science fiction, horror, and fantasy, I decided to launch this podcast to talk about those genres, and I hope you enjoy the show as much as I enjoy making it.
