Optional Extra is an Australian based multimedia group founded in March 2017.
Our aim is to create fun and entertaining content, primarily covering games and branching out into relating media. Currently, we produce a weekly podcast with rotating guests full of games, nerdiness and a fair bit of arguing. We’ll also be posting video content, on both YouTube and Twitch.
Editor-In-Chief & Co-Founder.
Overly ambitious is his mantra. Our resident tech-obsessed PC gamer who has been broken down by years of running guilds in World Of Warcraft. Mitch does everything except editing the podcast! He streams, reviews, appears in every single Podcast episode, designed the site, the graphics and saved Gotham City.
Editor, Co-Founder, and the host of the Optional Extra Podcast.
Smooth southern drawl, years of editing experience and a successful run of small taco stands, Bryan has none of these. What he does do is serve as audio editor for the site and tries to keep everyone on topic through his pet project The Optional Extra Podcast. Between the mentions of MtG and cosplay, you’d almost think he’s qualified to talk nerdy.
Host of the Optional Extra 2P Podcast, regular guest and content producer.
If it’s a video game Russell knows all about it. You can hear Russell regularly as the optional extra if there’s news to be heard or a Final Fantasy game to defend, and usurping Bryan as host of his own show! During the day he is an unassuming civilian, but at night he vigilantly goes through the latest gaming headlines to bring only the best news to the the optional extra community.
Co-Founder, Video Producer, and regular podcast guest. His house motto is “Of Fire & Fur”.
The less optional, optional extra, Jordan is here to play the best and the worst for your enjoyment. He was forged in the Abyss where you can also hear him as a regular podcast guest where he often has something unexpected to say.
