Episode 02: Alex O’Neill Created His Own Gaming Site and Podcast

In this episode of Behind the Pixel, I figure out who the heck Alex O’Neill really is. Ever since he replaced me on Millennial Gaming Speak the weekend I got engaged, I’ve heard rumblings of a fly guy that podcasts for hours on end, knows Greg Miller, and has some thought-provoking things to say about video games. Listen in as I chat with Alex and learn about his living portfolio—Irrational Passions—and the future of the industry.

Follow Alex on Twitter @AlFighter27 and his work over at Irrational Passions.
