Profile Information

Introduction
Good day, I am the host and creative director of Sounds of Steam, a weekly, Steampunk-themed, internet-radio show.

We have our usual weekly segments of Drink-Du-Jour, This Week In History, Opening and Closing Toasts, Upcoming Events, and Steampunk Music Hour. We discuss the influence of Steampunk in the world of movies, literature, music, gaming, and every other corner of culture we can find. We interview convention goers and hosts, artists, bands, writers, inventors, time travelers and craftsmen. We explore the hobbies, sub genres, geographic influences and fringe cultures that help shape Steampunk every day. All of this blended with wit, sarcasm and a pub-like atmosphere.

I have traveled long and far to reach others like myself. It began with expeditions into the Dark Continent, odd storms, study of these magnetic fluctuations, and the finding of portals! But wild ones that had no anchor or way back!

But my story begins a bit before that. I was raised to be torn between two lives, one the drunken Irish roots I adore, and the other the debates of court life. I decided to blend the two and try and make peace with both halves of my life. It didn't work. Out of rebellion I fled to do what I truly love, exploration and science.

I traveled far and wide, following the old spice and silk trade routes and visiting exotic lands. I studied with their scholars, scientists, religious heads and... well actually, I would talk to these people and glean what I could in quick fashion before moving on.

You see, I am much to eclectic and varied in my tastes and interests to stay anywhere too long. I love to meet a wide selection of people to learn from them and share with them. And that is what led me to that one fateful expedition in Africa I mentioned above.

I have traveled to the 16th century and worked aboard ships as a pirate, the 20th century to fight in their world wars (then deserted and went into gin joints and the jazz scene, met some interesting figures that liked cigars and guns), the 21st century to see their wonders as they finally begin to discover what I found centuries before, but they call it quantum physics! Been to a few other places too, but never seem to tan. I am looking into that phenomenon.

I have a Masters in Religion, a Doctorate in Metaphysics, and am a Professional Stand Up Philosopher.

Happy New Year to the Traveling Storyteller...

 

I trust you are doing well, though you did sound a bit under-the-weather during your end of the year Aether Podcast. Looking forward to another year of Sounds of Steam... Adventures, Gatherings, and all that is Steam.

Traveler Sivart,

 

Thank you, Good Sir, for an enjoyable evening recently on "Sounds-of-Steam". It was an adventurous and remarkable radio experience. I enjoyed speaking to your audience about Airships and Flying Machines... past, present, and future. It was quite fun and I look forward to future events...

 

Onward and Upward

Traveler Sivart,

 

Good Sir... It was my extreme pleasure to meet you recently at the steam gathering in Hampton. I look forward to continued camaraderie and mutual explorations of the Empire, the Aether, and Beyond.

I thank you, good Sir. My annual libations, which I was fortunate enough to celebrate heartily at MarsCon in Williamsburg, in the Commonwealth of Virginia, were a great success. Fortunately, I was sufficiently conservative with my consumption of roasted pheasant and absinthe that I shall likely survive to attend the event again next year. I shall be displaying daguerreotypes from the event on my S.E. page forthwith. Good day, Sir.

The Whistling Fire is online only, like many newer literary journals.  It requires no money and has a far wider audience than a print journal could ever reach.
