Mike Faber is the guy behind the ever-growing ESO Network. After years of listening to various comic book, sci-fi, music, and interview-based podcasts he figured why the heck couldn't he do it also? Hence Earth Station One was born April 2010. Mike has been hosting The Earth Station One Podcast for the past eleven years with writer Michael Gordon, and exploring the worlds of “All Things Geek.” In 2012 Mike started the ESO Network, and is the Chief Creative Officer. ESO has expanded into a multimedia network spanning blogs, videos, and the addition of over 28 individual podcasts, web-videos, live-events, and three books of short stories based off the network. Mike teaches and mentors new podcasters on starting and producing new projects, and recently has started studying himself to become a voice actor. Mike Faber is a man of many concepts; constantly coming up with new hare-brained ideas and never really knows when to stop, until his wife puts her foot down.
