The People Behind the Podcasts

More likely than not we prefer to be behind the mic, but if you want to get to know who the voices you listen to really belong to, here are the awesome individuals that are part of Growler Media

Molly Bailen

A multi-creative at heart, Molly’s podcasting is informed by a professional background in screenwriting, video production, and graphic design. A fan of Sci-Fi, Cyberpunk, and learning languages, she can be found designing retrowave t-shirt art and studying Sanskrit. She is passionate about macaroni and cheese, Miatas, her hubby, and her Maine Coon cat, The Holy Meow.

Molly is a veteran Movie By Minutes podcaster, and co-hosts Escape from New York Minute and Cabin Minute Cast.

Tierney Steele Callaghan

Tierney Steele is a 3rd generation librarian and 1st generation pop culture junkie. When she isn’t analyzing movies and tv shows she keeps busy by running around after her son and writing YA novels.

Tierney is a co-host on The NeverEnding Minute and Joe versus the Minute.

You can check out her website ( ) for links to her other podcasts and guest appearances.

Eric Deutsch

Eric loves podcasting because it combines two of his passions – his former career as a news radio reporter and being a huge sci-fi fan. Some of his earliest memories are seeing Flash Gordon in a theater as a five-year old, and watching Escape From New York on HBO at probably too young of an age. He likes to hang out with his wife and two sons; brag about his alma mater, the University of Wisconsin-Madison; quote Seinfeld; and sing along to the Beatles.

Eric is a co-host and co-producer of Flash Gordon Minute and Escape From New York Minute.

Bobby Flores

Bobby is a serial entrepreneur, founder of Growler Media, podcasting host, and producer. Known to most as a “fixer”, you are just a likely to find him rebuilding a blown head gasket or remodeling a bathroom as you are to find him building a website or editing podcasts.  He and his wife Carri have 3 children and live in the Land of Enchantment.

Bobby is a co-host on Beauty and the Beastly Minute and the LDS Dating podcast.

Carri Flores

Carri has a Bachelors of Science degree in Family Studies from BYU. She has a passion for relationships that is rivaled only by Cookie Monster’s love for cookies (which she also loves). She spends most of her time taking care of her and Bobby’s 3 children, but you’ll often find her reading books and blogs, giving relationship advise, or trying her hand at a new confection.

Jarf Harden

Jarf is passionate about inclusive, positive geek culture. He started podcasting with his college radio partner Brad; mostly so their wives got a break from hearing their thoughts on every Marvel movie. 

By day Jarf helps people with cystic fibrosis (a rare genetic disease) share their stories, raise funds for research and advocate for affordable, accessible health care. Working with families across PA, NJ and DE means a LOT of time on the road; so he is eternally grateful there are so many fun podcasts to listen to. In his free time he enjoys kayaking with his wife, hiking with their pitbull Jack Bow-Wow, baseball on the radio and texting his friends about Star Wars.
