Frankie Franco, III


Frankie Franco III, or “frak,” as he is sometimes called,  is a storyboard artist based in Vancouver British Columbia. When he isn’t drawing quirky things or admiring all the puns the world has to offer, you can find him being an overly enthusiastic Cat dad on the hunt for a cafe that does a good pour-over.

John Noe


John hasn’t given us a bio yet. Be sure to bother him about it.

He also hasn’t given us a photo, so this is the one he gets for now until he does.

Adam Molina


Adam is a Boston-based writer you can usually find drooling over new gadgets on the internet or re-reading the Harry Potter series.

That dude in the iPhone on the right came with the template. We’ll be changing it as soon as we think of something better. Check out that fancy colorful chart of nothing, though.

This map was on our template, frankly

And we’re not 100% sure what we should do to replace it! Do we really need a map? Is that what podcasts do now?

If you have ideas of what we should do in this space, send them to staff@pottercast.com!
