    The Hydra Radio - Episode 3

    in Hobbies

    This next broadcast of Hydra Radio will feature saltwater topics. I get to meet over the air with our moderator Marko, and Naomi Skinner, co-owner of Gulf Coast Reef and Aquaculture.


    Marko, a pre-veterinary student, has a variety of tanks. Marko has been in the hobby for over a decade, half of the time being involved with reef aquaria. His primary focus with his saltwater tank is in keeping SPS corals, though he also has soft corals and has kept LPS corals as well. In addition to these, he also keeps a freshwater planted community tank as well as a variety of smaller freshwater tanks and his 2 leopard geckos.


    Naomi has her bachelors in Marine Science and she tries to use her degree to help promote a more sustainable way of reef keeping. Naomi has been in the hobby for a number of years and has a passion for educating the public about making responsible choices. In her store, they do coral propagation and some onsite breeding as well. Naomi is joined in ownership of the store by our fellow admin Chelsea, AKA Urbanelements09.

    Hydra Radio - Rachel O'Leary

    in Hobbies

    I am pleased to announce that I will have the opportunity to speak with Rachel O'Leary, many of us also know her as Msjinkzd, on a special night next week. Of course, I am super excited about this, as I have been hoping that we could nail down Rachel before her schedule gets too busy. Our topics will include inverts and nano fish, and a few other passions that Rachel has in the hobby, her love of primitive fish and fish conservation efforts, and hear about her new article she has written for Amazonas. There will be much to discuss, but we will also get to know the Rachel that loves being a parent above all things, work on old cars with her husband and garden.

     As always, we will have the chat up for any questions our listeners would like to ask throughout the show.

    Hydra M Star and David Lipscomb

    in Books

    A native of North Carolina, Hydra M. Star is a Southern Belle straight from Hell. At a very early age she developed a deep interest in demonology, the paranormal, and the occult. A long time member of the Church of Satan, wherein she holds the rank and title of Witch, Hydra has never lost her passion for things that go bump in the night. Instead she has used this passion to fuel her many creative endeavors.

    Hydra is a writer of dark fiction and erotica, a former columnist, and editor. She also owns and publishes, along with her artistic partner Dave Lipscomb, Infernal Ink Magazine, a literary magazine focused on bringing readers stories that embody evil in all it’s gory, humorous, and carnal glory.


    Dave Lipscomb is the artist, a columnist, and the co-owner (along with Hydra M. Star), of INFERNAL INK MAGAZINE. Past collaborations have included BELIALIAN WOMAN: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION, NO ONE MAKES IT OUT ALIVE: AN END OF THE WORLD ANTHOLOGY, and the story "Candy, Blood, and Sex" for THE LADIES AND GENTLEMEN OF HORROR ANTHOLOGY (which is presently being expanded into a fully-illustrated novella). He recently provided the cover for author Rick Powell's MY SOUL STAINED, MY SEED SOUR.


    We will be premiering two poems written by Robert Leuthold and performed by Viktor Aurelius, "The Beast Unveiled" and "The Maiden of the Black Earth". But be warned... These poems and this show are for Adults only!
