J.P. Black

J.P. Black here. I’m from Chicago (Bear Down!) and spent time in Michigan and Colorado before settling down here in Des Moines. 

Thanks to older brothers and a dad who kept it cranked to 11, I learned how to headbang before I learned to walk. 

Beatles and Zeppelin are my jams, and as you can tell by the photo, I’m the guy talking about all the nerdery from Star Wars to pro rasslin to comics and toys. 

My wife Heather and cat Rizzo let me play on the radio Sundays from 12-7. You should listen.

Take a break from the TPS Reports and join me in the House of Black on KGGO. If your nerd cred needs some work, this show will turn you into the social outcast you’ve always wanted to be. Subscribe to the House of Black on KGGO podcast for your weekly dork fix.

Bonus points if you recognize me as the out-of-focus Homeland Security Agent from S3E19 of Chicago Fire.
