Brad “Scooter” Proctor is an Analytics Consultant for one of the largest banks in the U.S., a gamer, and now podcaster. He lives in Des Moines, Iowa with his wife and daughter, whom he enjoys re-experiencing all of his favorite things with. In February 2012, Brad co-launched Random Geeks Podcast, with long-time friend Josh Jungling, with an emphasis of a no agenda “random” topic, to be covered on each podcast, recorded at random.
Early in life Brad had an interest in video games and movies. In September 1991, Brad got his first console system, the SNES. Since then he has played or owned most every major console gaming system released in the U.S; his favorite console game still being Super Mario World.
In early childhood, Brad enjoyed watching T.M.N.T., Transformers, Fraggle Rock, and other 80’s and early 90’s programs. He also enjoyed many Sci-Fi and Action Adventure movies such as Star Wars, Highlander, Labyrinth, The Wizard, and many others.
Josh “JuggleNuts” Jungling also lives in Des Moines with his wife, daughter and two dachshunds. He works for the State of Iowa doing computer / statistical projects.
He was turned into a geek at a very early age with his first gaming experiences: the TI-99 and the NES. From there he started tinkering with computers; the first of which was a black & white Tandy laptop (it didn’t even have Windows on it). The natural progression of geekdom continued from there with taking computers apart, putting them back together, T.M.N.T., Goldeneye, Doom, Doom II… the list goes on and on and on.
Brad and Josh have known each other since middle school and have been close friends the entire time. Sometimes they can forget that those around them aren’t privy to their inside jokes.
