About Us

The Periodic Table of Awesome celebrates the elements of geek culture, fandom, and ‘genre’ content that make our universe awesome.  #TPToA began its life as a crowdfunded “love project” created by Dion Brooks, Felicity Blake and David Quinn, and has remained true to its community-led mission: independent, Australian-made, and accentuating the positive. The Periodic Table of Awesome is made by Geeks, for Geeks, bringing you the Best of Geek from Week to Week. #StayAwesome with us. 

The Producers of The Periodic Table of Awesome acknowledge and pay respect to the traditional owners of the land on which our show is made: the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation.

Fel

Fel

Executive Producer, Presenter

Felicity Blake is a factual storyteller for all media. She usually makes “serious” documentaries as The Dove Media, but after spending 13 years managing celebrity guests for one of the world’s leading pop-culture conventions, she still likes to keep an iron in the fires of geekdom. Also, someone has to manage Quinny and Dion, who can not be left unsupervised with sharp objects, Lego, or recording equipment.
