Cody is the kind of guy who knows a little bit about a lot of things, bouncing between fandoms with reckless abandon. But video games have always been his true love. He is a retired competitive Smash Brothers: Melee player, knows the names of all original 150 Pokemon by heart (in rap form), and has a VHS tape of him beating Castlevania: Symphony of the Night... which he has actually watched with friends. At parties.

When he's not gaming, Cody dabbles in cosplay, most memorably Booker DeWitt (Bioshock Infinite) and Dr. Horrible (both the white and red lab coat versions). As an occasional actor in Chicago, he also takes on nerdy projects at every opportunity, most notably his lead role in the no-budget YouTube feature film "Dance Dance Revolution: The Warrior's Path," the Troll 2 of video game movies.

If Cody is a jack-of-all trades Jonathan is a jack of few. He's been gaming since he was 5 years old starting on the original NES and fell in love with the medium upon the discovery of the JRPG. As a 5 time world smash bros. champion (of Rockford, IL), he grew up on Nintendo systems but branched out when all the best RPGs appeared on the Playstation.

Jonathan is a jack of few trades because he's basically good at playing video games and being a pharmacist. With his true love being board games of epic scope (Twilight Imperium, Through the Ages, etc), Jonathan turns to video games because it's hard to get a group together for those board games. An avid bowler as well, he basically did all the most unpopular things in school. If Cody is the talent of the podcast, Jonathan is the face, as Cody is hideous.
