The podcast premiered in September 2011, and is hosted by John Rambo (not to be confused with the fictional character John Rambo) and John Harrington (commonly referred to as "OJ"). The Show has no real main discussion, instead, the hosts discuss a variety of random topics ranging from Video games, Real-life, Movies, TV, Books, recent news topics, reading comments from fans, and featuring special guests. Fans of The Show (The Ramborgia) create intro music, artwork, supply comments and questions, create catchphrases and are a large part of The Show. Notable guest appearances on The Show include: Ellen McLain,[1] best identified for her role as GLaDOS in Portal and Portal 2, voice actor John Patrick Lowrie,[2] most noted for his role as the sniper in Team Fortress 2, voice actor Alicyn Packard who voiced the female blood elf in World of Warcraft, lead vocalist of Godhead and voice actor Jason C. Miller, and writer Ben Paddon[3] (who wrote the internet series, "Boomer's Day Off").  John Rambo was also formerly good friends with YouTube Let's Player DarksydePhil. John and Phil used to do a discussion show known as Smark Guys, a pro wrestling commentary show. When Phil moved across the country, however, the show was discontinued, and coupled with an audiolog released years after Phil moved, of John and Howard describing in length of how their friendship with Phil ended in such a acrimonious manner, it not only marked the end of John Rambo and Howard's affiliation with Phil, it also ruled out the possibility of them being friends ever again.


John Rambo had created a YouTube channel in order to post videos of his 2010 trip to Japan for Tougeki, the final of Super Battle Opera (a fighting video game tournament). Afterwards, John discovered that he had a large following of subscribers, but no future plans for the channel and no reliable way to entertain the growing fanbase. Two months prior, as result of being involved with DarksydePhil's YouTube Channel[4] and gaming playthroughs, John found himself unlawfully reprimanded at his sales job at a GameStop outlet store. Rambo chose to walk away from his employment and engage in a legal dispute with the store. The presiding Judge in the case ruled that the store had acted unlawfully and John was awarded benefits. Ten months after the incident, GameStop became involved in a scandal regarding the "trashing" of OnLive coupons for the game Deus Ex: Human Revolution.[5] This, in concert with the unfair treatment he'd received at the hands of his former employer, caused Rambo to create a short series of YouTube

John Shoot's On GameStop

videos called "John Shoot's on GameStop" (A shoot, is a term that refers to an unplanned and unscripted, though legitimate, attack). The videos, containing firsthand inside information on GameStop store practices, resonated with fans and remain the most successful and popular of John's videos to date. His "Shoot" series had no video or visuals, aside from a single still frame mockup. John had found, what he considered, a winning formula for a podcast.

John Rambo has stated that he was a "huge fan" of Howard Stern, Opie & Anthony and Conan O'Brien during his high school years, and as an "outcast teen", had a love of the talk show format. Fans appear to enjoy listening to John and he in turn, claims to enjoy getting subjects off his chest. The idea of a podcast show, he says, was a natural next step. John ("OJ") Harrington lived next door to Rambo during their teenage years and they attended the same High School. Being a close friend, Harrington (i.e "Other John") has shared the spotlight with Rambo in many of his earlier videos and became involved with the podcast following a brief telephone conversation. Rambo reports that conversation as a simple one, where he had just asked: "Hey, you wanna do a weekly podcast?" and OJ's response is said to have been an easy: "Sure".

The Show aired it's first episode to a favorable audience on September 23, 2011.
