Humberto Castañeda

Humberto Castañeda is said to provide the "layperson's" voice on the podcast.  But the truth is much darker.  Also, he has never, ever, even once held a job, at least not that he remembers.  On the other hand, he also has five fingers.  Some say he is a reincarnated Colombian werewolf, from 500 years ago.  Others say Humberto is not alive at all; they believe he is an actual Nosferatu (Greek for "Frankenstein's Doctor").  Still, the most alive he ever feels is in front of that Psychology in Seattle microphone, letting it ALL out.   He loves, loves, loves podcasting, and he absolutely tolerates almost all of his co-hosts.  Psychology is terribly fascinating to him because of his sordid past, and he is on a mind-altering mission to put an end to it, once and for all.  Humberto's secret weapon is his SSV, and his favorite color is the one he prefers over all other colors.  The end?
