Scott Cooper - Humorist
Scott is a British national and Brooklynite currently studying for his BFA at Brooklyn College. From 2003-2004 he starred on British television as Jordan Fishwick on the dramady, At Home With the Braithwaites. Scott holds a degree in acting from The American Academy of Dramatic Arts where he studied the Meisner technique, which said Scott, "Didn't' help me an iota on the radio, so I can't see why it's relevant to this bio."
Contributor Scott Cooper
Among Scott's aspirations are to produce his own scripts for cross-media productions, pet a lion, go to the moon, and to solve the Goldbach Conjecture.
Scott is a frequent contributor to Sex and Politics Radio productions, typically with a satyric presence who insists, "Sex and Politics has been uniquely useful to me as an outlet for my creative thoughts and bizarre political views. I've enjoyed collaborating with the cast and crew, and am very much enjoying watching the maturation of the productions."
Joseph Wade - Poet
Joseph Wade began his education in the military at the tender age of seventeen. He’s never been tender since. After 3 years in the Army National Guard and five years in the Navy, Joseph tried the corporate world. Joseph ditched all that to go to community college where he fell in love with writing. With a lot of hard work, Joseph has found some measure of success and hopes it continues now that he is here at Brooklyn College. His writing background includes art magazines, newspapers, books that will never see daylight and some that may, short stories and most successfully, poems. Joseph’s poems are not tender poems. Not ever. Refer to the second sentence. That’s all about Joseph for now.
From Joseph Wade directly:
The crew at Sex and Politics has been great. I really couldn’t be happier to be involved with such a group of professionals. They’ve taken me in and they make me feel included even though my role in the show is relatively small, for the time being. What I find really exciting about working on this show is that I never have a clue what is going to happen next. These people are innovators. Innovators that rock.
One more thing, to those of you that listen, thank you. It means a lot to me. Without someone listening, communication is dead
