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.
David “GrandPOOBear” Hunt is a prominent Twitch streamer and Super Mario speedrunner. What started as a hobby as a way to kill time while healing from a snowboarding accident, Poo has gone full time as a streamer with an engaged community. From taking world records for notoriously hard Mario ROM hacks to saving the frames, Poo shares an inside look to the world of speedrunning and Twitch.
