Calibrating Josiah Renaudin

Once upon a time Josh happened across a podcast that helped refocus his thoughts on podcasting. That show, The 1099 Podcast, featured friend of Constantly Calibrating Vanessa Marie of Gaming Access Weekly talking to Josiah Renaudin. At that moment Josh realized he needed to have both Vanessa and Josiah on podcasts at some point. Vanessa made her guest debut earlier this year, and finally as the summer closes out we were able to chat with Josiah Renaudin. Josiah is an Associate Producer...

Calibrating Troy Baker

At RTX 2018 an opportunity was presented to us: Ten minutes with Troy Baker, voice actor, non-generic sock enthusiast, and wonderful person.

They reached a compromise, and that compromise is what we present to you here.

Calibrating Ray Narvaez Jr VII

Another RTX Austin; another chat with one of our favorite people: Ray Narvaez Jr. Every year Josh tries to find an interesting topic to discuss with Ray. 2015 was all about his leaving Achievement Hunter. 2016 was about how the first year on his own worked out. 2017 was about Twitch Partners being angry at Affiliates, and finances as a streamer. 2018 is the year the discussion shifted to Twitch versus Mixer, and how everyone should just get along. Join us for a chat, some insight,...

Calibrating Alix Wilton Regan

Six years ago, at the dawn of Constantly Calibrating, Co-Founders Josh & Steven put together a list of "maybe someday guests". On that list there was an array of people from all walks of life, but in at least one case there was a character name, not a person: "Samantha Traynor". The beloved Comm Specialist, unbeknownst to Josh & Steven at the time, was voiced by Alix Wilton Regan. The list was set, and someday the duo would get her on a show. It's now 'someday', as we welcomed Alix Wilton...
