The Producers

Mike

Came up with the idea for the show while pooping, and started The Infinite Escape Room in 2018.

Designs learning for a living. Loves an escape room, a beer and a podcast. The few hours each week Mike isn't working, editing or pooping are spent cooking, playing vidjagames and trying to keep his creaking body fit.

Also produces the Pedagodzilla Podcast which tries to understand the science of learning and teaching through the lens of pop culture.

Ben

An escape room virgin when TIER started. But no longer! When not escaping or creating escape rooms, Ben works with servers and with open source software.

He enjoys copious amounts of tea and is a lover of puns, dad jokes, dark beers and technofaff.

Has an adorable doggie, Bertie the basset hound.

Jon

Joined the production team in 2020. Professional actor, computer parts dealer, father, and seven feet tall. He'd be the complete package if he could only grow a beard.

Jon loves fine food, strategy games, and coffee strong enough to permanently imprint caffeine in your bones.

He also has the darkest sense of humour on the podcast, which is saying something.

Jamie

Formally joined the production team in 2021, after years of basically being on the production team anyway because he contributed to the project so much.

Jamie is a professional writer, father, prolific puzzle creator, and runs the premiere South Wales escape room review site and blog - Armchair Escapist.

Most of his core memories involve movies from the 80's.
