Nadav Carmel is from Hollywood, FL. He started "Phoning It In" in Providence, then took it to Boston, then took it to Davis, CA. He'll listen to almost anything if someone's taken the time to record it, but his favorite song will always be "Wicked Game" by Chris Isaak.
Elisa took over the KDVS franchise in January 2011, a few months after Nadav moved away. She was a KDVS DJ for five years, took a year off, felt like an incomplete whole, and then came back to reestablish "Phoning It In." She likes songs the best.

Carrie Hadler is from Ann Arbor, MI. She was the next Providence host until she inexplicably gave up a life of radio stardom to travel the world. She is neither an elephant nor a small Asian child, but she is the Alan Lomax or Harry Smith of this phone thing. Read about her current project here.
James Brandt is from Brookings, SD, and took the helm after Carrie. He’s the most mysterious but least awkward of the hosts.
