Brad ShoemakerA reviewer who joined the site in June 2008. He is the current host of the Giant Bombcast.

After Giant Bomb's acquisition by CBS Interactive, he joined the site as a full-time employee. As of 2012, he lives in New York City and serves as one half of "Giant Bomb East", working with Vinny separate from the site's main office in California. He reviews many games, writes his own column on the site called The Guns of Navarro, and also writes some news. Alex was an infrequent guest on the Giant Bombcast before moving, and currently co-hosts Bombin' the AM with Scoops and the Wolf, a bi-weekly morning show, with Patrick, the Powerbombcast with Jeff, Dan, and Giancarlo Varanini, and Box Office Bomb, the site's movie podcast, with Rorie.
