The Hosts

Bruno and Nick, hosts of the Quit The Build podcast, have been friends for nearly 25 years. They met at a private elementary school in the 3rd grade and immediately shared a love of gaming. Playing handheld games on Game Boy and Sega Game Gear before and after school, the guys have enjoyed sharing tips, tricks, and their personal thoughts on games since the 3rd grade. Their 4th grade school pictures below are a testament to their friendship and the oh-so-fabulous style of the 90s.
