An artist, historical costumer, and all-around talented individual, Cynthia’s narration for “Horus” is one of the big reasons it’s a fan-favorite episode. When she’s not doing something creative, she’s usually out hiking or canoeing.

Not About Lumberjacks episodes: “Horus.” Cynthia also provides the intro narration for every episode of Behind the Cut: The Not About Lumberjacks Companion.
You know that person who seems to be able to do everything? That’s Ergo Phizmiz (a.k.a. DW Robertson). Whether writing serious compositions or creating tiny avant garde masterpieces, you hear his music every episode during the introduction and outro of Not About Lumberjacks.
While the composer behind Phizmiz has laid the persona to rest, you can still follow what DW Robertson is up to at his website.
Razen provides the tune used as theme music for Behind the Cut: The Not About Lumberjacks Companion show. The song is called “Reaper.”

Chad Crouch (a.k.a. Poddington Bear):
Chad Crouch makes instrumental music that you very well may have heard, but not realized. Crouch realized podcasting would only get bigger, but that podcasters would need music. He provides the music used by many shows, including episodes of Not About Lumberjacks.
Kai Engel’s compositions are perfect for literary audio works, or really…pretty much anything. And he makes his music easy to use under a Creative Commons license, or simple agreement and pricing if using his compositions for more commercial endeavors.
You can learn more about Kai Engel at his website.
Not About Lumberjacks episodes: “Looking for Dogs.”
I’m not sure Not About Lumberjacks would exist without Rick Coste. Rick did a show called Evolution Talk — a show that inspired me to do more with the production quality of what I was doing. Not About Lumberjacks is the result.
Every week is do a podcast called Men in Gorilla Suits with my friend Shawn Kupfer. We pick a topic and talk about it. Really, it’s a good excuse to ensure that no matter how busy life gets, we have no choice but make time to see each other regularly.
Shawn does a weekly show for Idobi Radio called Metal DNA (Saturday nights at 8 ET) and has a blog right here. (He freely admits that Men in Gorilla Suits partially killed his blog, but there’s good stuff there.)
In addition to her narration skills mentioned above, Cynthia is a very patient person. I say that with confidence, having shared my life with her since 1992.
With each new upgrade in gear or “I’m almost done editing this episode!” moment (when I still have an hour of editing left), her support and understanding mean so much to me.
