Taken while recording Irrational Passions Podcast 100
Irrational Passions is just a group of gamers that eat, sleep, breath, and most importantly, play video games. We all love games, so much so it is a little crazy. We are the future faces of the video game industry, so it all starts here!
We may be young and somewhat less experienced then most, but this group is truly the embodiment of our beginning. From this site and this podcast, we enter the gaming industry, and will be broadcasting out to hundreds, even thousands of gamers who just want to hear about the latest in their Irrational Passions.
A website not so much for news, but reviews, opinion and well thought out ideas. We bring you our unique and one-track style as well as a great podcast for your enjoyment, which is always full of crazy antics, guest hosts, and segments you’ve never heard before.
The team at Irrational Passions is currently composed of podcasters, which varies from week to week, and writers for the site:
Editor-in-Chief & Founder
Alex is the leading voice on Irrational Passions Podcast, as well as the producer. He is pushing the site hard to get feedback on his writing, as he intends to continue into the industry as a video game critic. He is the founder to Irrational Passions and was the genesis to its creation, along with Evan and Scott.

Podcast Host and Founder
Evan is a very special member of the team. He came to Alex with the intention of starting a podcast, and so Scott came in for the mix. He is a little goofy, can be childish, but he is serious about the gaming industry. Along with Scott, Evan will be designing and coding the games you will be playing.

Previous Podcast Host
Joe joined way back on Episode 13, and then stepped off of the podcast for a while. He still loves Irrational Passions, and has committed to coming on the show more often. He currently writes for PlaystationLifestyle and edits podcasts about science in his free time.
Podcast Host (Sometimes)
Tony is the sixth to join up with the Irrational Guys, joining up May 10th 2011, with Episode 43. If you want to know a bit about Tony, know that he loves the free-to-play PC game League of Legends, was an X-Bot but is warming to PS3, and thinks hard mode is the only way to play games. Tony is hardcore, but he loves playing with new people, so email him and get in on those games!

Brian Jackson, aka Nabeshin, was a fan of the podcast who later became a full member. He is working to becoming the Japanese coverage of Irrational Passions by going to events and coverages in the Land of the Rising Sun. Known for his creative genius on the podcast, he self-appointed himself to help keep the podcast fresh by suggesting new segments and discussions to the show.
Malicious Master/Auxiliary Podcast Host
Greg is the host of Malicious Underground Podcast X, the latest podcast under the Irrational Passions banner. He knows all you need to know about anime, and has our backs when it comes to recording. He only cohosts the podcast on occasion, but is there when needed.
Billy is more of a behind the scenes guy. He helps us a lot with our PR, and get’s going with some of the names and games you hear on the show. You may not here his voice on the podcast, but that makes him no less important to the Irrational team.

Yes folks, I have just stole my life biography from the movie Jack starring Robin Williams. Niall Reynolds, a lover of video games and movies.
