Mikey-NeumannMikey Neumann will be calling into Desert Bus at 6:30PM PST on Monday, November 16. 

Having been a part of the games industry since the age of nineteen, Mikey is perhaps best known for his work at Gearbox Software where he acts as the Chief Creative Champion. His most notable work with the studio is no doubt the critically and commercially successful titles in the Borderlands series. When not lending his creative talent to the world he can be heard voicing the (slightly) crazy mechanic Scooter.

Aside from this work at Gearbox, Mikey keeps extremely busy with a variety of personal projects. He is one half of the Chainsawsuit Original team alongside Kris Straub and his popular YouTube series Movies with Mikey continues to provide insightful yet comedic commentary on popular films.

In his most recent project, TV Crimes, Mikey watches awful TV so you don’t have to. Joined by actor and entertainer Wil Wheaton, they enjoy the worst that TV has to offer.

Have a question for Mikey? Leave it in the comments below!

  6. Dear Dr. Mikey, will you ever reach a ceiling of one upmanship with your own desert bus auctions? Can there be a pig too sweet?

  7. Dear Dr. Mikey,

    Big fan of just about everything you do. Ever thought of doing a Movies With Mikey that go into what makes the big classics so good (ex: Star Wars), or just keep the focus on your personal favorites/ really good but somewhat less heard of movies?

  8. Dear Dr. Mikey, if you could collaborate with anyone on a project (game, movie, podcast, etc), who would you most like to work with and what would you make? Also, would you consider auctioning off your chili recipe?

  10. Mikey,

    After being so positive talking about movies with Movies with Mikey, how did you decide to watch horrible TV shows with Wil for TV Crimes? (TV Crimes is fantastic by the way.)

  11. Dear Dr Mikey,

    Lady Hosk, the Hosklings and I would like to offer you a family to come live with. You can be Uncle Mikey and live in our spare bedroom. But did you KNOOOOOOW, that you will have a walk in closet?

  14. Dear Dr. Mikey,

    Since we didn’t follow through with our kidnapping of Wil Wheaton last year, don’t you think it’s fair that we should be rewarded with more delicious chili advice?

    By Strave - November 16th, 2015 6:42 pm
  15. I don’t have a question, I just want to thank Mikey for talking about being asexual in an article I read. It’s nice to have representation.

    By Anon - November 16th, 2015 6:42 pm
  16. Mikey, I have kind of a sellout request. My friends Heather and Lee were married yesterday and incorporated their love of Borderlands into their vows! I would mean a lot if you could give them a little shout out.

  17. Dear Dr. Mikey

    Are there any projects you are working on right now that you are very excited for other to be able to experience.

    By Ruming - November 16th, 2015 6:51 pm
  18. Dear Dr. Mikey, what would you say is the most rewarding part of doing something on the scale of Borderlands? What is a less-known achievement of yours you wish people recognized more?

    By Stellapacifica - November 16th, 2015 6:53 pm
  19. Dear Dr. Mikey, How important is borderlands (and other games) to your life? Why?

    By Drakoz - November 16th, 2015 6:54 pm
  20. Dear Dr. Mikey: A big thank-you to you and everyone at Gearbox for your fantastic work on the Homeworld Remastered Collection. I didn’t have a gaming machine when Homeworld originally came out so I never got to experience it then. Now I play it all the time and my friends and I routinely throw down on the multiplayer servers. It’s amazing to see the effort you guys have given to updating a game you loved while still paying great respect to the original creators’ intent.

  26. Dear Dr. Mikey, is the name TV Crimes a reference to the Black Sabbath song from Dehumanizer?

    By JCsub2 - November 16th, 2015 7:06 pm

    1. Any possibility of a crossover between your TV Crimes podcast and Graham and Kathleen’s Magnum Rewatch Podcast?
