Who are Team SuperCool?

Lauran Carter

Show Host

Lauran started her journey in the video games industry in 2009 and her tenure has seen her take on roles at EA, Codemasters and Lionhead Studios (amongst others), where she honed her communication skills and settled on her current form as Community Manager & on camera personality. She is currently embedded with the Two Point Studios team, spending much of her time pondering puns and dad jokes.

Lauran hosts the podcast, mainly because she really likes talking to people. Luckily for everyone involved, she is quite good at it. Some might say it’s her calling, others may wish she did it a little less, but everyone agrees that it is very entertaining.

She’s really into Pokemon… but not specifically the games, and not specifically the TV Show. Just Pokemon. In general, in all forms. If you ask nicely she may show you her plushie collection.

Ross McGrath

Producer

Ross joined the videogames industry in 2009, managing the SIEE PlayStation Store and PlayStation Plus program, before joining Take Two Interactive in 2011. 

Ross’ main role is to remind Lauran not to touch the desk while she’s recording, but also making pretty things, helping Lauran with words and ideas, and generally making the Podcast go. Please feel free to shout at him about poor-quality audio mixing in the newest episodes – he loves that.

Ross currently has over 90 Platinum trophies and none of them are the lazy ones. You know the ones… we’re looking at you, Terminator: Salvation.
