Jim Sterling is The Escapist's reviews editor and produces Movie Defense Force and Jim & Yahtzee's Rhymedown Spectacular, alongside Jimquisition. He also hosts The Dismal Jesters podcast, and does videos on his stupid YouTube channel. He wears good quality ties, not great, but nice enough.
New episodes of Jimquisition appear every Monday, only at The Escapist.
