ABOUT THE NARRATORS
Among the many hats that he wears, Joe "Lord Bruticus" Mignano is a voice over artist, and a familiar voice on many fan-produced STAR WARS podcasts.
An avid fan of STAR WARS since he first saw it on-screen at the age of four in 1977, "The Brutal One," as he has become known, is also an accomplished storyteller. His narrations of STAR WARS fan fiction stories have garnered a following of STAR WARS fans over the years to his podcast, Dark Empire Radio (classic version, when DER had fanfiction as part of its line up). Now, his best works and new recordings are presented here on HoloNet Audio Dramas, set to STAR WARS music, with occasional sound effects.
Joe has long had a desire to bring the fun of STAR WARS fanfiction to those that cannot see and / or cannot read, and to encourage an interest in literary development by using fanfiction as an entertaining and exciting means of doing so.
"Illiteracy is a disease, the cure for which is literacy. HNAD may sound like a disease in name, but it is in fact an effort to help bring about a much needed antidote to a growing global problem." - Joe Mignano
