The Cast of Characters
These are in alphabetical order by our last names (because Meredith is obsessed with popularity, so we do it purposely to make her crazy).
After earning his BA in Communication from the University of Toledo, Matt began his career in radio. A ten year radio veteran, Matt is currently the Assistant Program Director and Sports Director at 1370 WSPD. He’s sort of a big deal.
Matt enjoys producing kick-ass shows (like ours!), listening to mash-ups, doing voice-overs, and taking long walks on the beach. Okay, he hates beaches. Look how WHITE that guy is!
He also has a weird fetish for the following redheads: Alyson Hannigan, Rose McGowan, Mean Girls-era Lindsay Lohan, and Karen Gillan & Catherine Tate (for our friends in the United Kingdom). Watch out, gingers. He might try to Bill Clinton you with his cigar.
Matt raises his daughter to be awesome and frequently fondles his wife in Toledo, Ohio. He’s 30 years-old and is super smart about radio-y stuff.

Brittany Gibbons is a writer, humorist, and catalyst.
Mostly known for her satirical wit and self deprecation, Brittany first gained recognition authoring the award winning humor blog, Barefoot Foodie, in which she overshares bits of her life between phonetically spelled sound effects and excessive ellipses. She’s also super good at drinking wine and coming up with phone apps that sound like sex positions.
In 2010, Brittany traded in her author hat for one of media maven, launching Mouth Media with partner Heather Spohr, the nationally recognized online women’s magazine Curvy Girl Guide, as well as several other big projects being launched this year. She is a 2011 TED speaker, addressing body image in women. Brittany is also the voice of the popular humor podcast, Brittany & Meredith Live, and can be found contributing to the new ABC show, Rebecca Regnier’s Full Plate.

Meredith was supposed to be a famous country singer, but my parents made me go to college and major in something “real.” She graduated with a B.S. in business, and landed a gig as a Human Resources Director at a mega car dealership in Toledo, Ohio.
When she’s not reasoning with Used Car Salesmen, or her super hot husband, she’s hollering at one of her three gorgeous children (who are most likely wiping boogers on the suit she had laid out for work the next day).
She began writing my humor blog, Life’s Crazy Joke , in 2009. I guess it doesn’t suck since she’s now the Relationship Editor over at Curvy Girl Guide (which totally proves all of that serial dating before marriage has finally paid off). In 2011, HR Managers began laughing at her work when she began writing for Fistful of Talent.
After all of this career ADD, she has finally figured out what she wants to be when she grows up. She wants to be a famous radio DJ. Brittany & Meredith, LIVE! is the most fun she’s ever had at work. So take that, Meredith’s Mom and Dad! She’s going to be famous and business-y all at the same time.
