> [!info] > Part of creating *The Max Frequency Podcast* was to restore all the episodes of *Behind the Pixel*, an interview show I did in 2017 for seven episodes. These will be mixed into this feed so that the show can live on podcast services once more. Below are the original show notes, with some light editing. I hope you enjoy. <audio controls> <source src="http://traffic.libsyn.com/forcedn/maxfrequency/BTP_Ep2_Alex.mp3"> </audio> - *[Download](http://traffic.libsyn.com/forcedn/maxfrequency/BTP_Ep2_Alex.mp3) (33MB) — Episode Transcript* - [RSS Feed](https://maxfrequency.libsyn.com/rss) - [Overcast](https://overcast.fm/itunes1557043396) - [Apple Podcasts](https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-max-frequency-podcast/id1557043396) - [Spotify](https://open.spotify.com/show/3W1LwBNmhZ6s5QmQViWXKn) In this episode of Behind the Pixel, I figure out who the heck Alex O’Neill really is. Ever since [[Millennial Gaming Speak – Episode 77 - Why We Want Careers in Games Media|he replaced me on Millennial Gaming Speak]] the weekend I got engaged, I’ve heard rumblings of a fly guy that podcasts for hours on end, knows Greg Miller, and has some thought-provoking things to say about video games. Listen in as I chat with Alex and learn about his living portfolio—Irrational Passions—and the future of the industry. Follow Alex on Twitter @AlFighter27 and his work over at Irrational Passions. # Dope Facts about Alex - He is a mad lover of Chipotle - He thinks *Kingdom Hearts 2* is the best *Kingdom Hearts* game - When Googling his name, the American-born, India-based actor Alexx O’Nell comes up first # Links to articles mentioned in the interview (Listed in order of publication date) - [Episode 1- Welcome to Irrationality](http://hwcdn.libsyn.com/p/9/4/7/9473f37981864c12/Irrational_Passions_Podcast_Ep._1.mp3?c_id=2012779&expiration=1491937983&hwt=3eb70d7ebf81e58139c0576398f591ae) - [Super Meat Boy Review](http://irrationalpassions.com/review/super-meat-boy/) - [Alex Talks JRPGs versus WRPGs](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3BSLeIxwMNU&t=601s&list=PLXxYdIESXJXxqiijUijVvXXTvNU4MFLgf&index=18) - [The History of the Podcast: Alex Talks Bonus Episode!](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xw0bDiNaMDM&list=PLXxYdIESXJXxqiijUijVvXXTvNU4MFLgf&index=7) - [The Ultimate “Experience” — Alex Talks](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgUfcD_6rVo&t=2s) - [Chasing Video Game Dragons — Alex Talks](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qe0BmqWiUTA) - [Alex O’Neill’s Top 10 Games of 2016 — Alex Talks](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Impq5w-6kOA) - [IrrationalPod Ep. 322 with Andrew Taylor](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZrmCYLtVks&t=44s) > [!quote] > “This Max character, getting engaged, sounds like a dirt bag.”- Alex O’Neill from episode 77 of Millennial Gaming Speak “[[Millennial Gaming Speak – Episode 77 - Why We Want Careers in Games Media|Why We Want Careers in Games Media]].” > [!note] Edit (05/16/2017): > The original title of this episode was “An Interview with Alex O’Neill.” I decided to change the name to better reflect the podcast and its content for listeners. *This episode was originally recorded on April 7, 2017.*
