The Team


Fitten 'Bubba' Goldsmith


Atlanta’s own Fitten ‘Bubba’ Goldsmith created the Double P Network after 3 years as a guest on the popular Podcast Winterfell Game of Thrones podcast. Bubba is a writer and veteran improviser from Chicago’s ImprovOlympic where he was directed by the legend Del Close in Night of the Mutant Harolds.  Bubba’s first writing credit was the poorly seen and as poorly reviewed film “Cut Throat / Scared.” Bubba hopes to continue to grow his list of popular characters such as Bailiff Rusty, Grand Maester Senile Pycelle, the Vincent D’Onofrio’ed Wizard of Oz, and JubJub the silent podcaster.




Christopher ‘Catfish’ Gehrman grew up awkwardly in California, Virginia, Rhode Island, and Hawaii.   He began his professional acting career as an alien named Flaximentariddlybixaporpoise for a library tour in Hawaii, where he wore a spray-painted silver visor along with matching spray-painted silver boots.  Since that time, he has been hugged by Orlando Bloom, attacked By Val Kilmer, and ignored by Ethan Embry, all for that sweet sweet cash and fame that comes to a guy who acts one or two lines at a time. He started podcasting so that he could speak in full paragraphs.
