Creator, producer, writer and host of HiSciFi is Irma Arkus. Over the years, she noticed that the idea of sitting by herself in a studio is unappealing, and potentially dangerously unfunny too. So, Irma had quite a few lovely co-hosts over the years: Andrew Yang, Jevon Ryan, Gregory Milne, and Tarek Suliman. Irma is evidently a man-eater.
BROADCASTING OF HISCIFI
HiSciFi is taped and broadcast live, every Friday at 5:00-6:00 p.m. on CJSF 90.1FM in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada. Currently, HiSciFi is evaluated for syndication.

ABOUT Tarek Suliman
Tarek, on the other hand, is striving for a full scientician position. He is currently researching genetics at Simon Fraser University as a graduate student in biological sciences so you’ll probably get to read a paper or two about DNA analysis of some creature (read: rainbow trout) sooner or later with his name on it. Tarek is also an avid athlete, and a movie-buff.
