The world of online geek culture is filled with interesting personalities, but none are as enigmatic and divisive as MauLer. This Welsh-accented, gas-mask wearing Longoid is a co-host of the popular YouTube channel “Everything is a Podcast (EFAP),” where he shares his thoughts on a range of topics from comic books and video games to politics and pop culture.
MauLer’s unique appearance, with his black gas mask and red eyes, is what sets him apart from the rest of the crowd. He wears a black jacket, pants, and boots, a white shirt, and a red tie, and is known to don a long tan overcoat. Despite his intimidating look, he has a soft Welsh accent and can switch to American English as needed.
MauLer is often seen as the voice of reason on EFAP, playing the role of mediator between his co-hosts, Rags and Wolf, who have more playful and fiery personalities. He is known for his fairness and for supporting his opinions with evidence, but he can sometimes act irresponsibly and make inappropriate jokes. He is a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Queen Elizabeth II, and considers himself to be a bit arrogant with a tendency to go off on tangents.
Before joining EFAP, MauLer worked as a retail worker at a toy store, where he met a lot of interesting characters. He started his YouTube career in 2014 with a series of video game and TV show analyses and quickly caught the attention of his future EFAP co-hosts, Wolf and Rags. In December 2017, he released a highly-viewed critique of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which further boosted his exposure and led him to where he is today.
MauLer’s early videos were lengthy, multi-part reviews of popular geek media, where he provided entertaining and well-thought-out critiques of movies and shows. He used a mix of monologues, film cuts, and memes to argue his points, making his videos a must-watch for those interested in geek culture.
Despite being a polarizing figure in the geek community, with some admiring his intelligence and objectivity, while others criticize his controversial opinions, there’s no denying that MauLer is a unique and fascinating character. Whether you love him or hate him, he’s definitely someone worth keeping an eye on in the world of online geek culture.
