Skid Maher is a founder of the The Glass Cannon Network and Game Master's two of the Patreon exclusive shows.


Skid has been nerding it up since 1982, when his uncle Sinclair gifted him the Basic D&D set (the Tom Moldvay edition) for his ninth birthday. A New York resident since 2001. It was all downhill from there, as he subsequently dabbled in such classic games as Champions, Gamma World, Judge Dredd RPG, Ghostbusters RPG, Robotech RPG, Top Secret, Tunnels and Trolls, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles RPG (before it was a stupid cartoon), Middle Earth Role-Playing, Beyond the Supernatural, Twilight 2000, Price of Freedom, Mechwarrior, and Traveller. Nowadays he spends most of his time acting, writing, spending time with his lovely girlfriend, taking pictures of their dog, and threatening Troy. He also had a letter read on Late Night with David Letterman, and was briefly a very minor celebrity on Japanese TV. Oh, and once he saw a blimp.[1]

In 2021, Skid with friends Tom Breyfogle and Andy Schmidt launched a podcast, Franchise Fan Guys, where they analyze film franchises.
