DAN FERLITO (Host, Shoulder of Orion) has been obsessed with Blade Runner ever since he was introduced to the film by his father when he was young. Since then, he has always fostered a nerdy passion for his favorite film but never knew what to do with it...until he discovered the Shoulder of Orion podcast and called in to comment. Since that moment he developed a friendship with the SoO team and was invited to be a host on the show.
The mix of philosophy, science fiction, and existentialism that the film explores lines right up with Dan's favorite things to talk about, and he couldn't be happier to be contributing to the Blade Runner universe!
Dan grew up in Italy and California, spent five years in the US Marines where he learned to work as an air traffic controller. He is currently a controller at San Francisco Tower.
MICAH GREENE (Contributing Host, Shoulder of Orion) has wanted to be Princess Leia since before she can remember. Growing up where family get-togethers almost always involved a viewing of the original Star Wars trilogy, sci-fi became a major influence in her life. Micah is attracted to the creative and daring storytelling in sci-fi films and literature that bring us to confront the most puzzling and challenging aspects of human nature.
Micah is a Nursing student with plans on becoming an RN, and has had a professional acting career for six years in Boston, MA. She is wife to Patrick, who has always inspired her to be curious and adventurous, and mother to Jude and Henry, their little space cadets. She is very proud to be a part of the Shoulder of Orion team.
PATRICK GREENE (Host, Perfect Organism and Shoulder of Orion) fell in love with the Kenner Gorilla Alien as a seven-year-old and hasn't looked back since. He believes in the transformative power of science fiction as a tool for allegory and reflection, and he believes the original Alien film is one of the few truly perfect films ever made. He's also a lifelong Blade Runner nut, and is thrilled to have excuses to talk about his two favorite film franchises on a regular basis.
Outside of podcasting, Patrick is an award-winning composer. He's also a dad, and currently in the process of introducing his two young sons to the sci-fi universes he's loved since childhood. His wife, Micah, is a Contributing Host on Shoulder of Orion; she co-stars with Patrick on JM Prater's Alien: Proximity. For more on Patrick and his music, please visit www.patrickgreenemusic.com.
