Marshall Graduate and Huntington Native Griffin McElroy has been named to Forbes 30 under 30 list for media for 2017. The 29-year-old McElroy was chosen for his work as the founding editor of Polygon, Vox’s video game website as well as weekly podcasts.
One of those podcasts, My Brother My Brother and Me is part of the Maximum Fun podcast network. It’s an advice podcast, with less than serious answers. It received over 3.5M streams in November. Griffin and the McElroy brothers, Justin and Travis, have also developed the podcast into an online television show for the NBCUniversal online comedy network called Seeso. McElroy joins Clark Davis on Skype for this interview from Austin, Texas.
