about the narrators…
Originally born in Texas, Tren eventually escaped and wound his way through a mystical series of jobs in the San Francisco Bay Area where he has worked as a software QA Tester for both graphics drivers and video games, a freelance mascot performer, and several jobs on a PBS kids’ show.

But since being a werewolf phone sex operator can get boring, he decided to use his powers to entertain a broader audience.
