Brad Seal

Brad Seal once took a personality test and was informed that celebrities who shared his profile included Robin Williams, Bob Dylan, Mark Twain and Walt Disney. He still has no idea what this means but hopes it explains his love of the Muppets. Brad moonlights as an amateur chef, vegetable gardener, brewer of beer, fairly successful fantasy football player, podcast host, and not-so-professional adult kickball player. He has an M.S. in broadcast journalism from Syracuse University, and he is certified to teach in Texas. Brad is the proud papa of two terrier mixes, Noodle and Guinness.
