Agatha Cheng burst into the RPG scene in early 2015 armed solely with the knowledge that gnomes are a fantasy race and apparently so are bards. She has since waded deep into the world of story games and LARPs, but still maintains the wide-eyed enthusiasm of that long ago first session. When not obsessively dissecting pop culture and media, she has a particular fondness for sad games, romance RPGs, and Chinese wuxia dramas.
Steve Huynh joined the team in early 2019 as a Toronto-based Vietnamese RPG and gaming enthusiast. Although he had no experience with podcasting or game design, he lead with passion and became one of the cast members of the mini-series Dungeons & Da Asians playing La Ning. Shortly after, he and Daniel paired up for another project: Asians Read Oriental Adventures. From there, he leveraged his newfound insights and joy to become a writer and editor in Unbreakable Vol.1 and* Unbreakable: Revolution*.

Jeremy Blum (who goes by Pixel Grotto online) is a journalist, gaming blogger, and comic book geek. After rolling his first polyhedral dice during a 2017 gaming session in Hong Kong, he dove headfirst into the world of tabletop RPGs. Since then, he's been lucky enough to write for D&D Beyond, contribute to multiple Pathfinder projects, and work with Asians Represent to help educate and elucidate on topics related to both RPGs and Asian culture.
