Go To

James Deaux

The creator of the Tirades and one of the two hosts of the podcast, James Deaux is an English major, and a published author. As such, he's invaluable to the podcast.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Not to the extent of Damien, but he has been known to use this trope quite often.
  • Happily Married
  • Older Than They Look: It's been frequently noted that James looks far younger than he actually is. While this applies to Damien as well to an extent, it is really pronounced with James
  • Sophisticated as Hell: Is a very eloquent person, published a book about vocabulary, and can go on blistering rants about a film.

Damien Wilkens

The other host of the podcast, Damien 'Dubs' 'DW' Wilkens is also the editor of the podcast. He is known for his especially deadpan manner, shattered dating history, swiftness in movie recaps, and love of David Lynch. Currently, he runs What I Played, which can be found here. He also runs a YouTube channel.


Will Ackerman

Perhaps the most consistent feedbacker to date, and friend of the show. Guest hosted on The Apocalypse episode.

Ian Wilson

Another friend of the show and one of the more consistent feedbackers. Guest hosted on the Faust: Love of the Damned. Very English.

Hannah Krueger

Friend of the show, all-around great person, and the woman that James and Damien let on the show whenever they cover a Twilight film.
  • Author Appeal: Japanese RPGs, like the Persona series and the Kingdom Hearts series.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Currently the only female cohost. Hannah's also provided some of the filthiest statements the show has seen.
  • Straight Gay: Is bisexual, but doesn't make it a focal point about herself.

Michael Sims

The bossman, the man who hosts Currently has only guest hosted on The Crow: Wicked Prayer episode.


Cole Hurley

While he has not been a host on the podcast yet, Cole has been one of the most consistent feedbackers to date, and has been one of the major editors of the Wiki. Currently, he holds the Feedbacking Championship belt.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Is diagnosed with ADHD Inattentive, which leads to a lot of this.
  • Author Appeal: Deep, well-written storylines, well-choreographed action films, and generally things that are fun.
  • Straight Gay: He's a panromantic asexual. Except for a few references here and there on the show, that hasn't been brought up.

Michael Cole

An ex-cohost of the podcast, Mike appeared between episode 0.2 and episode 14.
  • The Alcoholic: Mike was drunk for at least two of the episodes, most notably the Ecks vs Sever episode.
  • The Gadfly: Was guilty of this constantly.
  • Unperson: Mike has barely been mentioned since his departure, for obvious reasons.

How well does it match the trope?
