    Isn't that Mary Kish, formerly from Gamespot? She was on Giant Bomb a bunch of times in the olden days.

    Kish does a podcast with Dan called fire escape

    Yeah Game Mess is their own thing

    That said, Jeff Grubb and Mike Minotti may as well be like 75% of Giant Bomb's output, and Minotti doesn't even technically work there

    Did anyone else find the Extra Life this year for Giant Bomb to be kind of...anemic? Only guests were Rorie and Tam that I recognized, TurboShawn with Grubb, and only Grubb and Jan seemed to be involded.

  • Undead ScottsmanUndead Scottsman Registered User regular
    Isn't Giant Bomb like 4 guys now? (Jan, Jeff B., Grubb and Dan)

    There’s also another stream at Dan’s house this weekend with Grubb and Minotti, but yeah I miss the big 24 hour streams.

    Alex’s epic 16 hour drum stream is a highlight.

    Didn’t he work his way up to a full 24 hour one? I really hope that now that he’s not in an apartment he can start doing drum streams again.

    Shut your mouth, Steal my Sunshine was only...6 years ago.

  • LanzLanz ...Za?Registered User regular
    If you’re like me and turn Giant Bomb Infinite on as your background noise generator, Steal My Sunshine is, effectively… Forever.


    Also occasionally you trap Dan, Jeff, Drew and Brad in an eternally recurring series of Mario Parties.

    THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO, BEFORE PODCASTS AS WE KNEW THEM, THERE WAS SIR GERST… OF MAN; AN APE-LIKE CREATURE MAKING CRUDE AUDIO RECORDINGS OUT OF VIDEO GAME CARTRIDGES… AND HIS OWN WASTE.

    So at this point, is Jan the only full-time GB person?

    Jan, Dan, Jeff Grubb, Jeff Bakalar is I think it

    Nominally Tam and Lucy, but they are GameSpot and that takes up a great deal of their time

    And Mike Minotti basically may as well be, although he is officially still employed elsewhere

    Jan, Grubb, Bakalar and Dan, basically

    Tam and Lucy are split between it and their main jobs at GameSpot, and then they’re supplementing with Minotti and… I keep forgetting her name, the one who’s been on frequently but I presume is technically employed in another division of Fandom

    Bailey Meyers is Fandom, yeah, she's been on a lot of their podcasts lately

  • DiarmuidDiarmuid Amazing Meatball Registered User regular
    Y'know, I'd completely forgotten Bakalar existed.

    I know Dan still does the Fire Escape podcast and his own stuff on Twitch, so I wasn't sure if him or Grubb were full-time.

    I forget grubb’s position but Dan is a (the?) creative director for the site, which I understood essentially means the role that develops segments, manages the logistics for setting them up, etc.

    My other impression is outside the regular features that we actually see they’re probably in meetings all day.

    that's the tiniest bathtub I've ever seen

    there's a lot of weird stuff going on in that pic, but strangely that's the first thing that jumped out at me

    That seems relatively normal by Dan Ryckert's standards.

    My first guess was bidet, maybe?
