Adam was born Adam Ross Erdmann, but is known to his friends as Adam, Erdmann, Erdmander, Double Pants Erdmann, DJ Ivy Planter, Madame Birdman, Ermish, and Roberto Cataloni of Quonochontaug, RI. He is a direct descendent of Ragnar Lodbrok, the famous Viking warrior who conquered Paris and, like his famous ancestor, enjoys boating, ale, axes, and a good pillage when he has time. Much like his lineage, Adam recognizes that no quantity of swords is ever enough. Adam is also a man of many talents, some useful and some not. On one hand, Adam is always up to join friends when they’re jonesin’ for some Fourth Meal from Taco Bell. On the other hand, Adam has been known to view time stamps on events, gatherings and the like as general time arrival suggestions to which he is never late, but everyone else is exceedingly early. Adam is aptly prepared to serve as co-host for “Buffering …” as he is nerdy to the point where he knows what many acronyms equate to, such as NES, VHS, DVD and XBOX. Everything that Adam has put his mind to, he has attached with an infectious enthusiasm rarely seen elsewhere. To sum up Adam properly, he is the master of his domain and motorcycling.

Listen to Adam try to guess the authors of each sentence of his bio:
Dan has always had the drive to make people laugh, and, since college, was infected with the need to simultaneously inform people of what’s going on. Now, he has allowed the two aspects to mix (which made for one messy Tuesday) and now he’s co-hosting the “Buffering …” podcast. Dan has always been a nerd, investing a majority of his time on gadgets and Internety junk in general. Sure, he leans toward the Apple brand, but he’s a good person at heart (No offense, Apple! I love you!). He has also had some experience in comedy through high school theatre and his college newspaper (when you have a free moment, Google “Brett Favre”+”April Fools”+”UW-Green Bay” and you’ll see some of my handiwork). Also, Dan has learned that his family has a history of Peter Pan Syndrome, and he is starting to show many signs of the syndrome’s symptoms (say that five times fast). In recent years, he has had a lot of support from co-workers to run for political office, based on his ability to speak in front of others and effectively dodge answering questions, but he’s opted for a life of laughter and cubicle forests instead … for now.
