Ole Gamer Joe - Co-owner/Operator (Joseph Tkacz)


Joe has been playing video games since he was old enough to hold the controller. In 2010 he joined Playstation Unlimited as a review editor. From there, he launched "Gamer Joe Radio Show" independently. The show was quickly noticed and picked up by the 8bitx radio network. After several years with the network, Joseph created and wrote the story for Codename Trigger Thumb, a gaming music tribute band. Becoming increasingly frustrated with the lack of recognition for many game composers, developers, and publishers, he and wife Angela created Media Moogle to combat the echo chamber and give the voiceless in gaming a voice.
