Like pinball? How about beer? Then, we have the perfect Creator Spotlight for you yet! This time, Rocket Punch gets their flippers loose as we chat with Stephen Young, the creator of Pinball Undesirables! Stephen stops by and talks to us about his awesome endeavor with Pinball Undesirables, a streaming channel dedicated to streaming pinball for anyone interested in watching and listening to him play. As the self-described "okayest pinball player ever", Stephen chats with us on how he became an "accidental" pinball streamer on Twitch while trying to work to becoming a content creator, his passion for showing pinball to as many people as he can, and learning and growing unexpectedly within the Twitch communities he entertains each week. From the start, Stephen had humble ambitions, but even he admits that he never expected to be slamming pinballs (and adult beverages) live for everyone across the internet, and that now he can't imagine not being able to bring some hilarious entertainment (and awesome pinball action) to those people and truly build an active community around his channel on Twitch. Come listen to how he got started, the tricky business of setting up a stream around pinball, his ambitions for Pinball Undesirables, and more!
Wait no more listeners, because a new episode for Creator Spotlight is here! This time, board games are making a full swing, as the Rocket Punch crew get to sit and chat with Carla and Nick Kopp, the creators for the popular up-and-coming board game company, Weird Giraffe Games!
It has been a long time coming, but a new episode of Creator Spotlight returns! This time, we get to sit and chat with someone that the Rocket Punch crew has been wanting to talk with for a while now: a cosplayer! In particular, we sit down with Danielle Craft of The Winter Robin Cosplay to talk about the exciting and increasingly popular activity of cosplay! In this episode, Danielle talks with us about how she was brought into the cosplay world, the work that she must put into to execute on each of her costumes everyday, and how sometimes, you just have to dress up and have fun with your friends, and forget about others that may look to criticize you. Plus, we bounce back and forth with her on the specific topic of the state of cosplay in the world today, and what that means to her personally, as well as what difficulties she (and others) have had to overcome to pursue the activity they enjoy. If you are looking to cosplay, or are already deep in the activity, then you should definitely listen in to this fun, yet thought-provoking episode!

WELCOME BACK to the next installment in our Rocket Punch Creator Spotlight series! This week, we could not hold in our excitement to have the opportunity to chat with Jeffrey Parker and Zac King, two members of the cast and crew filming the Star Wars fan film, Star Wars: Battle of Rocket City, right here in Huntsville, Alabama! Once hearing about the Star Wars Fan Film Awards coming up within the next few months, Jeffrey worked hard to bring together a brilliant cast and crew to make this fan film set within the Star Wars universe a reality, and with submissions coming up soon, Jeffrey and his team are working tirelessly to create an excellent, memorable film that fans around the Southeast, and the world, will surely enjoy! We were so thrilled to get the chance to sit down with them and talk to them about the creation of this film, the challenges they faced, and some of the lessons they have learned during this experience!

GREETINGS, and welcome back to our next story in our Rocket Punch Creator Spotlight series! This week, we were super excited to sit down and have a chat with Richard Moss, the owner of a new local restaurant/bar/arcade hybrid, located within downtown Huntsville, Alabama, called Pints and Pixels! After looking at cool, nerdy places that other cities around the country had, Richard took matters into his own hands, and with the help of some talented and knowledgeable people, including an awesome locally owned restaurant, Richard has opened up the first, and one of the coolest, restaurant and arcade spaces in downtown Huntsville. Richard is incredibly ecstatic to open his business to the people, and we were just as thrilled to get the chance and talk with him about how he decided on this concept, the challenges with bringing it together, and what his plans are for the future of Pints and Pixels!
Welcome back to the next installment in our Rocket Punch Creator Spotlight series! This week, we got the pleasure of sitting down with Matt and Amie Gibson, two Huntsville locals and owners of Pixel Perfect, a company they started to create Perler Bead pixel art for nerds everywhere!

Rocket Punch was humbled to get the chance to sit down with them and talk about Pixel Perfect and why they enjoy creating such fantastic pixelated pieces for their fans!
