The Fancy Pants Gangsters are a collection of netcasters dedicated to the goal of providing quality audio entertainment in a shameless pursuit of wealth and power. While they have ambition and verve, it can not be said that they thought their brilliant plan all the way through.

Launched on April 1, 2008, has played host to hundreds of hours of quality audio entertainment, starting with the obligatory video game podcast as well as our currently running restaurant review show The Well Fed Guide To Life. Since that time, we have produced shows on film, comedy, and music of many varieties, becoming a sort of home for Radio K alumni including the long-running metal show Locust Lecture. In 2012 The Voice Behind was started as a way for fans of voice acting to hear what their heroes sound like when they aren’t fighting (or being) monsters. 2014 gave us the first comics show to bring pizza with Panels & Pizza, and the following year gave us its partner show Capes & Crepes as well as the latest music show Hot Song and science fiction radio drama series Redshift.

What’s in store for us now? Who can say? We have a lot planned and half the things we end up doing didn’t come from plans, so the only way to find out is subscribe, support, and spread the word about the best podcast network named after a semi-obscure George Carlin reference,


Adam Vermillion

Adam reads comics. Adam used to eat lots of pizza. He’s now located outside the Quad Cities where there isn’t as much pizza but still an abundance of comic shops for such a small metro area. If he’s not reading comics and talking about comics he can be found in the kitchen cooking lunch for his girlfriend or spending copious amounts of time on I-80. Honk if you love Daredevil!

Ashley Hay

Ashley’s life would be complete if she could just eat mini tacos and watch Disney movies everyday. She’d have to share said tacos with her dog and cat who still don’t have the power of the human language. This can only mean Ashley has a long way to go before becoming a real life Disney leading lady.

Dan Malmon

Dan is the comics editor for Crimespree Magazine. A comic book fanboy since the mid 1980’s, he still can’t believe that everyone in the mainstream knows who Thanos is.

Dave Bergen

The simple things in life have become more important to me. Things like where to find the best sushi, what a true good beer tastes like, and the fact that all we need in this world is not love, but a good meal.

Evan Pedersen

Owner and over-exposed host of this here netcast network. I’m here, and by extension all you see on the site is here, because I apparently have a desperate need to be liked and a fear of having extra money. So here’s hoping I’m not completely obnoxious.

Laurel Deneen

Laurel’s Disney obsession started with the films, then grew to what some may call an unhealthy level, after her first trip to Mecca Disney World as a child. It’s only gotten worse since then. (Don’t even ask about her vinylmation collection.) She looks forward to sharing her knowledge and love with the Babes of Wonderland audience.

Thomas Kwong

Local musician, DJ, writer, and nice guy.
