Dr. Damien Wilkens is the producer, director, editor, writer, key grip, best boy, caterer and co-host of the Tranquil Tirades podcast.

He once wrote about video games every day for a year. He is the owner and operator of What I Played


Damien is an enigma wrapped in a riddle wrapped in nougat wrapped in another riddle that preserves the nougat. When the Tirades started, he was known for his deadpan delivery, but as he aged and the show has gone on, he has now turned into a self-described "loud asshole".

He is known for his obsession with band names and has a tendency to make jokes for three people.

He and co-host, James, will be called to battle for Jim Varney in The Ultimate Battle of Good vs. Evil. He will be wearing the suit.

He's a real doctor.

He's also part Transformer. It's a long story.
