Meet the team
Creator driven. That’s the first line in our tagline. You can’t move the bus until you have the right people on board. Here’s a family photo album of any time different members of The Scavengers Network have met up and hung out, whether they live in the same state/area or whether they travelled hours on end to hang out! There’s a lot of love in the ScavFam. Below this you’ll find bios for the different creators that make up the team of The Scavengers Network.
Colin M. Parker
Owner, CCO, Supervising Producer, Talent, and Producer
Colin M. Parker is a videographer, producer, editor, and podcaster in the state of Maryland. Colin is a founding member of The Scavengers Network, where he is the owner and Supervising Producer. As the Supervising Producer of The Scavengers Network, Colin has overseen many new projects, ranging from podcasts about band discographies to narrative storytelling/audio fiction podcasts. He also started the Podcast Outreach Program, where industry professionals visit local schools to teach podcasting to students and help them create their very own podcasts in a collaborative environment with fellow students.
Colin studied at Loyola University of New Orleans, where he graduated with a B.S. in Music Industry Studies, with a concentration on Digital Filmmaking. He ran Iggy Vision, and was the head of post-production and the film crew for EQ&A. He studied under mentors Billy O’Connell, Kendra Reed, and Jay Crutti, and is eternally grateful for their friendship and guidance.
Colin is the co-host of Journey Under 30, and a cast member and producer of both Myth Takes and Apotelesma. Outside of the network, Colin serves as the Director of Digital Media and Technology at Bass Works, playing video games with friends, playing bass in the pit for a local theater, and, most likely, talking nonstop about Spider-man.

Morgan is currently one half of The Broads and The Bees, a show about sex and sexuality, the host of Morgan Needs A Podcast, and a cast member of Myth Takes. When she’s not creating podcasts, she spends her time creating performance art pieces, teaching, collecting sex toys, volunteering, tying up naked yogis, costuming, baking, and sending pretty good tweets on the Internet.
Talent and Producer
Sam Greszes is a writer and podcaster currently based in Chicago. He has written for internationally distributed print publications such as ION Magazine and prominent websites like Polygon, Eater, UPROXX, Kill Screen, and Thrillist for over a decade. He is the host of State Your Case, co-host of Intentional Sounding, and a cast member of Myth Takes. He also thinks he can beat you in a thumb-wrestling match, but he's probably wrong.
To unlock him, you must first beat the game on Very Hard difficulty without losing a life. Then, he will challenge you. You must defeat him in this battle to unlock him for play in Arcade and Versus modes.

He likes being a guest on shows and likes music.
He used to be on a podcast called Unabashedly Obsessed and can tell you that episodes of that show are still on the internet and are still charming as hell.
He talks and laughs very loudly.
Promo Director, Engineer, Talent, and Producer
Mason is a huge nerd. We checked. 85% of his bodyweight is pure nerd energy. He handed us his "list of credentials" but it was just a drawing of several cats in a wicker basket. It wasn't even a great drawing. His hobbies include building electronic gadgets out of household waste and spending hours agonizing over audio edits that nobody will notice or care about.
Mason has been described as "Who let you in?" and "Dude, thanks for the baklava but I still don't understand why you're here."
Mason is a junior RF broadcast engineer and professional audio engineer, but those just look like meaningless buzzwords don't they? He produces the podcast iDunnoRadio and whatever else catches his attention for five minutes. He somet- OH. He's gone.
He just... left.
Talent and Producer
Elizabeth Nordenholt is a podcaster, beer sales lady, and general nerd currently living in Los Angeles. She is one half of FMK All Day on ScavNet as well as Your Fave Is Problematic which can be found elsewhere on the internet. Prior to her podcasting career, she was a professional stage manager working in and around LA and staying decidedly behind the scenes. When not playing high stakes FMK and smashing the patriarchy, she can be found playing TTRPGs, snuggling her cat, and probably working on another of her many projects.
