In this new venture, we aim to deliver a podcast that focuses on video games, the industry and the culture surrounding it. Join hosts Josh Faulkner, Zach Anderson, Shannon Moore and Alaina Grimm as they tackle the latest industry trends, pop culture and reviews on the hottest games on a weekly basis.

Now let’s meet the cast:
Josh is an Ohio native who grew up with gaming as a toddler in the 80’s. Gaming has been a passion of his for the past 30 years. For the past decade, Josh has been around the web spreading his thoughts and opinions on gaming and the industry as a blogger, reviewer and podcaster. Josh helped create past gaming podcast projects and since left to form That Pixel Life with some of the amazing people he met through that venture. Also, Josh loves film, technology and music. You can find Josh on Twitter @JDFaulky.
Zach is a Bay area gaming fan who’s marketing background and ‘tell it like it is’ mentality makes for interesting perspectives on the industry and its business practices. Along with Josh, Zach also co-founded previous gaming podcast projects and left to form That Pixel Life. He’s a father of two, a massive sports guru and a fan of Halo and StarCraft.

Shannon is also a Bay area gamer who has worked with Zach and Josh on past projects. He has leant his voice and opinions to us on several occasions. We liked him so much we decided to bring him on-board on That Pixel Life with us. He is a husband, a father and has a deep-rooted love for everything Dragon Ball. Thanks to his insight into gaming and his enthusiasm, Shannon is a huge asset to the show. You can reach Shannon on Twitter@Shmoore0317.

Alaina is full of energy and delivers a much needed female perspective on gaming and its industry. She’s a huge Overwatch fan and lover of Japanese culture. Alaina stepped down in 2019 to continue her education, but see exists behind the scenes and still hangs out in the community. This will not be the last you will hear from her.
