About the Hosts

Joey Cheng


Joey Cheng is a news editor typically covering explosions and other unsavory things. In his free time, he enjoys inserting as many cats as possible into his D&D campaigns and punishing his players with never-ending loops of Final Fantasy soundtracks. Joey is the DM/Creator/Editor of Adequately Advanced Magic.

Jeremiah Cushman

Host/Twitter Monger

Jeremiah has been playing D&D since middle school, which is longer than he cares to remember. Someday, he'll play the dwarven fighter riding a triceratops that he's always wanted to. Jeremiah plays Hyrkir, a half-orc druid, in Adequately Advanced Magic.

Willy Gu


Willy is playing D&D for the first time, and he hopes to explore the relationships between technology, superheroes, and power. He is also interested in creating a character and watching the character grow while being that character. He takes game notes on a computer and uses DnDBeyond to help him figure out his modifiers, so you may hear typing and clicking when he speaks. Willy plays Jack, a human fighter, in Adequately Advanced Magic.

Roy Arguelles


Roy loves technology, space, and long walks into monster infested dungeons. In his spare time, Roy spends a lot of time playing Factorio with triple-digit mods, among other survival games. Roy plays Niklaus, a human sorcerer in Adequately Advanced Magic.

Mitchell Sommers


Mitchell is a long-time D&D player (though not as long as Jeremiah) and video game enthusiast. He enjoys failing to git gud at Dark Souls, ruining Joey’s (non-podcast) campaigns with his ridiculous rogue skill-checks, and creating fun characters to role play. Mitchell plays Seirys, a half-elven paladin in Adequately Advanced Magic.
