This podcast was started with the community in mind so I hope to have conversations with as many people as possible. The goal is to share these conversations on the podcast so I/we/public can get to know the PEOPLE beyond game development from our community and beyond on a more personal level. I'm really excited to be rolling this out and hope you will all enjoy.

I'm Rebecca, and I've always been an artist. Currently I'm living a dual-life: 3D texture artist for Tangent Animation Studio by day and a Dental Hygienist by night. I have no actual formal training in art of any sort, though I do love sharing my ideas and emotions through artistic mediums, especially video games, and that seems to be enough. :) I love meeting new people and exploring wild places!
Ben Bergman is the interactive developer for the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. He likes to work with his hands and his brain, with bytes and electrons. The world of human computer interaction and physical computing is his playground, be it making intuitive interfaces to help people learn tough concepts or making completely impractical devices for his own amusement.

Aaron Klaassen is a web developer who definitely doesn’t make video games. These days he leads the API team at Unsplash, and when not doing that he’s working on the Winnitron Network, an indie arcade machine platform and online library of games.
