The Team

The many myriad talents of Plot Bubble are split into three groups: Cast, Crew, and Consulate. The cast are the clowns you hear on our podcasts, the crew are the ones that make them sound a little bit sensible, and the Consulate enact Machiavellian schemes behind the scenes. Read more about them all below.



Bobberton is the official unoffical podcast R&D department. Meaning he has several terrible ideas and the occasional good idea. One such good idea was The Beacon Broadcast which he started along side Niriall back in Season 2 of RWBY. Since then he has had many more terrible ideas and a few decent ones that have helped Plot Bubble grow into the production it is today. Until we figure out how to get rid of him he will keep throwing out ideas until something interesting sticks. Follow him on Tumblr!


DaftProdigy, AKA “Sunshine Mother,” AKA “Benevolent Leader,” AKA “Holy Crap Does She EVER Stop Laughing, Seriously, My Ears Are Bleeding,” is one of the oldest and most-feared members of Plot Bubble. She has hosted or co-hosted The Shizno for around nine years, and although previously she was also in charge of editing and social media, she was able to foist off wisely delegate those duties to other members, under the clever excuse of “If I don’t finish my dissertation, then my twenty years of schooling will have been for nothing.” Catch her on The Shizno, occasionally on Beacon Broadcast, and on Tumblr. But don’t catch her if she’s not laughing. At that point, you should already be running away.


Dougss is the definition of too old for this. Being on the Shizno since Day 1, he’s bounced around roles, filling in as a host, an editor, and finally settling on the moderator of the Plot Bubble Discord server. He also hosts and edits Watch and Learn, PB’s newest production. In his free time he DJs and reads the news for fun. Follow him on Twitter at @dougssz.


Echo started as a cast member and editor on The Shizno and Beacon Broadcast, before managing, through sheer force of will alone, to bring the disparate strands of Plot Bubble together. They are now the Communications Director, which means that if you read a post on our Patreon or on this website, Echo probably put it there. They love podcasts (duh) and are irritatingly British. Find out more here.


Myriam Feygin joined the Shizno Podcast team in 2010, and since has worked to help promote the Plot Bubble Network’s shows through use of Social Media, community engagement, and arranging panels and interviews. She is a cofounder of the Beacon Broadcast podcast, and wants to spend the rest of her life in Virtual Reality so she doesn’t have to sleep anymore. Find her online at

Rane Zero

David “Rane Zero” Clark; The Night Father, He Who is Evil and Must Be Stopped, Master of Coin and Holder of Breath. Rane joined the Shizno as a panelist in season 7. Over the course of the seasons he has worn many hats, from graphic designer to lead editor. Rane is currently the treasurer and owner of Plot Bubble and a SMAD student at James Madison University in Virginia. His other duties include reminding DaftProdigy that she is wonderful and adorable. Yes, even in his official Plot Bubble bio.

Sam Newmark

Sam is the Production Manager and lead editor for Plot Bubble. Debuting in Beacon Broadcast Volume 3 as a cast member, he quickly became the show’s go-to editor due to his vigorous work ethic and audio engineer training. He continued this role during the production of The Shizno where he was promoted to Lead Editor. Upon the reveal of Plot Bubble and the decision to add more content, Sam’s title shifted from Lead Editor to Production Manager, where he now oversees the editing team, continuing to work harder and harder to bring Plot Bubble to the next level.



“Artyom, probably better known as Arty-Farty, is (currently) the youngest member of Plot Bubble. Please remind him of this constantly. His tumblr is notactuallyartyom, and he sometimes cries. A lot.”


Blue is a podcaster and writer who currently lives in the U.K, and who spends most of his time trying to write stuff, or catch up on all the TV shows he watches. Blue has been participating in The Shizno and Beacon Broadcast since RWBY Volume 3. Blue is a resident ‘old fart trapped in the body of a 21 year old’ and can be heard thinking up more ways to torture everyone with terrible puns.


Church is extremely gay, and will take every opportunity possible to make sure you know that (including this one). He has been on the Shizno since Season 12, and helps edit episodes once in a while. He is currently attending College for Theater Production. You can find him on both Twitter and Tumblr.


Ghazi AKA Ghazman, is a mysterious figure who shows up on the podcasts every now and then to say terrible puns and pop culture references. No one really knows much about him other than he is a journalist, who tries to write poetry on his writing blog and has a terrible meme filled Tumblr.


I’m Joe. I enjoy long walks on the beach and watching the sunse– Oh, is this not that kind of bio? In that case, I’m an editor and podcaster who enjoys overanalyzing shows while trying and failing to keep my humor SFW. I also run Pancake Pug Productions.


My name is Kaden and I am your local PodcastBot2000. Due to a manufacturing accident, I only have two modes: puns and biting cynicism. The manufacturer decided to use this as a marketing campaign, claiming I could pass any Turing test since I naturally emulate millennials. If you want more procedurally generated humor you can follow me on Tumblr at nonegenderwithleftbeef or at theguywiththeyellowaccents if you want the Rooster Teeth specific humor. Have a goo- KADEN.EXE HAS CRASHED


PinkAura, more commonly known as Pink on both The Shizno and Beacon Broadcast, is best known for their laughter that will never cease to end. Though they’ve taken a break from both podcasts to focus on their cosplay, they intend to return occasionally for records in upcoming seasons. They’re on Tumblr, Twitter, and Instagram.


Ridgway is a British-Canadian working their way through graduate school while having fun with the Shizno. He is currently involved in researching Space Plasma Physics. He has been involved with the Shizno since Season 10. As well, he is a Scout leader and has been for 6 years. Loves puns. His Twitter account is @robbieridgway.


Hi I’m Shi! Going on 20 and studying NatSci at uni I got into Red Vs Blue two months before my exams as procrastination. I chose the name Shi not because I’m an anime weeb (anime rocks tho) but because the area of Tokyo where my parents met is called Shibuya and it almost because my name (until my parents were told it would be like calling me a train station). I love food, space and Church (better dead than red). Come chat to me on Tumblr about character development, recipes and anything else! Except spiders. Don’t talk to me about spiders.


Sunday is always tired and always has a theory, because that’s her job. She’s been on the Shizno since Season 14, is the host of the Beacon Broadcast, and knows way more useless trivia than any sane human should. She has sworn a solemn oath to complain until Wyoming comes back on RvB.


Syp. Probably exists, could possibly not. Definitely maybe has a Tumblr.


Tyler Strahan is a podcaster and editor for the beloved podcasting group Plot Bubble and has made appearances on both The Shizno and Beacon Broadcast along with other side productions. Tyler is known for her high energy and quick wit, though she is slow to the draw on occasion. Tyler says hi.


Xekstrin is a freelance writer residing in Washington state. She’s always hungry for positive inclusive representation in media and does her best to fill that niche when she can. Yes, that’s really her voice. You can follow her on Tumblr at xekstrin.



Does computer stuff, CS student at University of Nottingham. Likes snow, trains. Dislikes everything else—especially cutlery with joins in the handle. Helped Wil Wheaton root his phone once. Perpetually bored.


I’m Leonard, a DnD player, podcaster and editor. I play video games and write fanfiction, and in the process of creating my own indie game. I’m bibarrybluejeans on Tumblr.


Greetings! How are you functioning today? Oh, me? Well,I’m… functioning. There is just too much work to do. Sleep is a luxury; tea is my life fuel. I’m the invisible Shizno, much like a very silent fart that you never know where it came from but you’re sure as hell you can smell it. That’s basically what I do as an editor of this podcast network. If you want to find me, I’m XiroPaine on both Tumblr and Twitter.
