Jump Kick Punch! is a biweekly podcast based in Atlanta, GA where six to eight chucklefucks take turns jibber-jabberin’ and rough-housin’ over modern multimedia entertainment and its surrounding, ever-popping culture. From comics to movies to games and beyond, no stone is left unturned and no cow is sacred enough to ward off their many, many colorful opinions. Ideally, somewhere along the way, you are entertained.
Podcasts are recorded regularly every other Monday and uploaded the following Wednesday.
host : editor-in-grief : toot toot sonic warrior
Brandon is an advertising and video game copywriter who spends an indefensible amount of time thinking quietly about colorful mascot platformers. When he’s not busy selling roast beef sandwiches to nerds, he finds the time to record, edit, and upload a podcast every other week. He is a Leonardo who wishes he was a Donatello, but he does alright.
optimist : heartthrob : chief master halologist
Tom loves everything until he doesn’t. If you don’t love everything, it is going to make him extremely upset. When he isn’t busy loving things, he’s busy making cool marketing stuff for Hi-Rez (the makers of SMITE) and playing as many games as he possibly can. He is a special boy.
blanket statesman : local iconoclast : homestuck enthusiast
Josh is not a person; he is an identity passed down from worthy host to worthy host through the ages. The only prerequisites for worthiness, however, are “not really wanting to do much of anything” and passive nerdiness, so being chosen isn’t really that special. He was a high school debate team member back in the 90’s, so, y’know, he is very good at arguing.
repository of all comic knowledge : power girl admirer : conversation enhancer
Zack is eight people sharing the same mouth. Some of them talk about comic books. None of them care about video game news.
wry smiler : nerd culture anthropologist : your new boss
Nerds beware: Liz is here to smack the drink out of your hand and have a good laugh. Don’t fret, though— she’ll hand you something else that you’ll like better. Don’t fight it, just help her help you. She enjoys corgi videos, has strong opinions about shows with robots and/or dragons, and will gladly let you buy her tacos.
propsmith : master replicator : portal gun denier
Master replicator of Volpin Props fame, Harrison has been building things for as long as he can remember. Most of his time is spent sculpting, molding, sanding, and carving weapons from video games for commission and for fun. He is very excited to never build you a Daft Punk helmet.
adventure old-timer : cosplay ambassador : dye hard
Jenny is an art director, cosplayer, gamer and unstoppable solar body of unbridled creative energy. Her workdays are spent breaking advertising molds; literally every other waking hour is spent making something and encouraging others to do the same. You can find more of her on-screen work at Lets Make Show, Backward Compatibles, and Point + Quick.
urban viking : fantasy fancier : one-man gundam factory
Eric is like a ginger Jaeger piloted by a Nordic savage and a Japanese school girl, both of which are intent on derailing your conversation. He is a big ol’ sweetheart.
