Alex Hirsch was born in Roanoke City, Virginia in 1987. Ever the hobbyist, he has maintained a passion for gaming throughout his entire life. He has also dabbled in: Magic tricks, Greco-Roman wrestling, mumblety peg, amateur comedy, combat fencing, web development, recreational summoning of otherworldly beings, tabletop gaming, podcasting, hip-hop, blacksmithing, and countless other subjects to waste varying lengths of time.

He first attempted podcasting and radio as a teenager using his band's equipment to produce a comedy show wherein he occasionally interviewed local guests, and more often yelled about Matt Lauer and his unprofessional conduct as a journalist. This project lived and died in his basement bedroom, but lead him to entertain a recurring daydream "What if I were a radio guy?"

Some years later - after college, wife, and kids - he was invited to join a budding game community and it's associated podcast. From there he has proceeded to guest and host several other shows. Currently he is a cohost of Geeksquatch Podcast and Projekt Cardinal.

His dedication, diverse skill set, and absurdist humor are points of pride. If you would like to get to know Alex, please find him on the following websites or contact by email directly.
