Luke Kondor started writing on his computer in his early teens and never looked back… and now he has very sore eyes. He runs and produces a short story podcast called The Other Stories, which has amassed over 10-million downloads. In 2015, he won the best Low-Budget Film Award at the London Short Film Festival for a film he made in 7 days with no camera and no money. Currently he works from a dining room table in the middle of Sherwood Forest and lives with his fiancée, Cat, their pet cat, Oscar, and their larger, angrier cat, Alaska, who is actually a dog.

Karl Hughes does all things audio. He has been responsible for what you hear in the hugely successful "The Other Stories" podcast since the early days, making sure every monster sounds scary but doesn't blow your ears off. When he isn't hunting down gun shot and stabbing SFX for podcasts he also composes podcast theme tunes – you can hear two of these on the "This Is Horror" and the "Great Writers Share" podcast.
