GUEST HOSTS:  THE BLACK TRIBBLES (@blacktribbles) Sci-fi, comic books, movies, video games, cartoons; it all gets tossed around by the 5-headed hairy hoard of Black Tribbles—creator/producer Len Webb aka BatTribble, co-producer Kennedy Allen aka Storm Tribble, Erik Darden aka Master Tribble, Randy Green aka SuperTribble and Jason Richardson aka Spider-Tribble. The team reveals untold stories of geek history, showcases new and upcoming projects, and engages in thought-provoking conversation and provides critical insight into a culture often devoid of a black influence, all with an irreverent tone that delights as it educates.

A hot item on G-town Radio, 900am WURD, iTunes, and Soundcloud since 2011 and doubly honored at the 2014 Philadelphia Geek Awards, taking home Streaming Media Project of the Year honors while Richardson was named the Geek of the Year, Black Tribbles Prime - the flagship of the Black Tribbles Podcast Network - made the historic leap to terrestrial radio in 2016 moving to WPPM-LP 106.5FM PhillyCAM People Powered Media in Philadelphia & Camden. This crew now brings their unusual brand of comedy, insight and audacity to a listener base 800,000 strong every Thursday night LIVE 9pm-11pm EST. They also find time to lend their critical expertise to with weekly reviews of the best of geekcentric television and more.

The crew regularly invites their guests and fans to find their own ‘Tribble Designation’ and take the Tribbles’ whimsical oath of allegiance into the Tribble Nation, where everyone is ‘Too Cool to be Geeks, Too Cute to be Nerds; we are all Black Tribbles”.
