About Us

Adam Loyal is the author of the Wondering Through The Forest blog featured on Grimerica where he gave readers a very personal look into life with synesthesia. In this condition, the senses intermingle, creating a singular experience of the world.

His unique perspective drove him to become the heart and soul of the beloved Friends To Know podcast, an on air, free form conversation with various guests. Two of these guests, Napoleon Doom and Jestin Sallas, would later be asked by Adam to join him as cohosts.

Each week, the group mentally palpitates a slew of diverse subjects, playing devils advocate or just examining social morays, politics, religion, basically any and all subjects you’ve been told are impolite to discuss. Its the kind of unapologetic, penetrative repartee that UMG is hoping to fuel in its listeners.

Adam doesn’t see the harm in adding a little grease to people’s mental gears. Let him slap your cerebrum around as cohost of UMG’s “The Untitled Podcast” which he runs with celebrated blogger and research fiend, Jestin Sallas.

Jestin Sallas   gained notoriety for is blog “Fortean Mindset” featured on Grimerica, where he delves into the arcane. Knowledgeable on subjects from superstition to sasquatch, Jestin has an unquenchable curiousity about the world around him.

While people have come to count on Jestin’s  well researched exploration of all things fringe, here on UMG, Jestin applies that same scrutiny to contemporary media. When Jestin’s on the case, expect that no stone will be left unturned.

Jestin has the unique ability to combine humor and knowledge into a very palatable mix, sure to nourish your hungry mind. His vigilant brand of investigation will thrill you on “The Untitled Podcast” which he cohosts with popular podcaster Adam Loyal.

Napoleon Doom Napoleon first came to public attention through the web comic series “Lost Bread“, originally featured on Grimerica. Napoleon serves as both writer and illustrator on the series, which is a visual chronicle of the author’s lucid dreams. “Lost Bread” is now a published graphic novel, with a second edition in the works. Volume I is available at Napoleon’s personal website www.lostbreadcomic.com

Napoleon’s self effacing, tongue in cheek style  of social commentary began to bubble over into other projects. An armchair historian, Napoleon set sites on examining the real motivations of conquered and maligned armies throughout history. Traveling to reenactments, historic state parks and living history retreats, Napoleon takes a hands on approach to uncovering the stories of people history has painted as “the bad guys” in the UMG podcast series “The Defeated.”

For more lighthearted fare, Napoleon is also the writer for the up and coming Pod Drama “Creeping Wave” a fictional behind the scenes exploration of the bizarre, esoteric adventures that find the UMG crew when the mics go dead.
