Close-up of the second Gallifreyan Embassy (of Long Island) banner. Painted by Louis Trapani (acrylic on canvas) in 1986. The banner traveled with the Embassy at all its public appearances in the early years. This slide of the Embassy logo was used on screen at PBS stations such as WLIW during pledge drives when we volunteered. Photo and artwork by Louis Trapani.
James Naughton has been a sci-fi fan for as long as he can remember. Growing up in the UK, he spent most of his early years cowering behind the sofa to the Daleks.
Always interested in technology, in early 2005 he started his own podcast, about everything and anything. This lead to involvement in various other shows, such as Rough, Ready and Raw and Doctor Who: Podshock. These days though, he prefers to invest his time podcasting solely about science fiction.
Louis Trapani founded the Gallifreyan Embassy (GE) in June of 1985 to serve the growing fandom centered around Doctor Who and other British science fiction during the mid-80s in the US. Originally a local organization with local meetings, today it is international, serving the global community.
In 1989, Louis graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree from the School of Visual Arts in New York where he majored in the media arts department.
Ken Deep comes to podcasting from the traditional broadcasting medium. Having honed his skills in professional radio and television broadcasting, he applies the same vigor and enthusiasm to our podcasts.
He, along with Louis Trapani were there from the beginning of the Gallifreyan Embassy and helped to bring it to where it is today. His extensive knowledge of science fiction is evident in all our shows.
Ken continues his work in traditional broadcasting whilst also being one of the pioneers in new media. His experience interviewing people from a wide range of backgrounds is vast. From his work hosting a national show on Air America to being a voice-over talent, Ken has mastered it all and brings that experience to our podcasts.
Once again, the Gallifreyan Embassy website has regenerated. This is sort of the Jon Pertwee version of our site (give or take), as it is essentially our third incarnation of the website.
This new site is still being developed while our previous site remains operating and functioning as it had been since the last regeneration (2005). Eventually, we will migrate here as our default site while keeping the previous site as-is for archival purposes.
NOTE: If you have an existing account from our previous site, it will need to be re-created here.
While content is being moved to and being developed here on our website 3.0, please access our previous site for the past four years worth content.
