Who Are We? is a collaborative nerd news and game review website founded in 2014. Our focus is to bring quality content (and bowties) to the online nerd community through written articles, videos, podcasts, and more! Based out of the Metro Detroit area, we travel to local comic events and anime conventions throughout the Midwest.

We tip our hats to…

We prefer to keep it classy here on, so we would be remiss if we didn’t give acknowledgments where they are due. First, a sincere bow to the lady Lauren Sanborn for her development assistance and administration of the website.

Second, a sincere bow to the lady Lauren Sanborn for her development assistance and administration of the website. (She’s the administrator, so she gets acknowledged twice.)

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to the writers who work hard to make this site possible. We are so honored that you’ve joined our party!

We would also like to thank all of our mothers, specifically Greg’s mother, for not drowning him in a vat of boiling oil when he was a child.

For countless inspiration, we thank Ash Ketchum, the moose in scene 24 of Monty Python & the Holy Grail, the shiba inu dog breed, and the 11th, 10th, and 4th Doctors.
