If they had unlimited funds and could bring anyone on, who's on it?

Mary Kish and Jeff Green. Both are amazing at what they do and both are great when they are on podcasts.

Actual dream team is just the original four, which is literally impossible, but at the same time so easy to just go back and watch in the archives.

For other random internet people, I would love to see Vinny play through some games with Epicnamebro, that would be a joy to watch. In the context of friends of the site that I would love just having around all the time, then Kessler and Lang for the West Coast. John Drake for the East Coast.

I can't top this, though. Except add Danny!

Everyone currently on payroll except Dan and then add Patrick Klepek, Adam Sessler, Cara Ellison, Leigh Alexander, Austin Walker, Gita Jackson, Danny O'Dwyer, Mary Kish, the ghost of Ryan Davis voluntarily possessing a sweet robot, Jeff Green, and what the hell, someone needs to save Stephen Totilo before Kotaku finds a way to blow up.

Jeff Bakalar, Samantha Kalman, Austin Walker, Danny O'Dwyer, Mary Kish, Jeff Green would be a good start.

Then maybe Tom Cruise and Charlize Theron for that extra star power. Dr. Tracksuit would work equally fine.

Add rotating guest appearances from Jeff Green, Will Smith and James Rolfe and this is where it would be at for me.

Edit: Oh god and Alex, he's one of my favorite persons on the internet, the Beastcast has been fantastic recently.

ITT a bunch of people who think the site could retain its chemistry and quality while massively increasing the size of the crew.

GB with a lot of additional people, no matter how talented, would cease being GB.

I don't really have a 'dream team' though of course I miss Ryan terribly. I think there are a lot of people who could fit in very nicely with the crew and each would have strengths and weaknesses. I do think they should add a woman, though, since every single front-facing employee has been male and it's getting a little uncomfortable.

But Jeff is also pretty darn good at recognizing talent, which is demonstrated by his plucking Austin from relative obscurity and now he's a BFD, and how well Jason and even Dan have fit in.

Keep the team as it is, add Mary Kish and Danny O'Dwyer. They can help the site both being in front of the camera and on the production side. Nothing else needs to change and the team doesn't need to get bigger.

No joke, that Alex Navarro/Werner Herzog combo would be the greatest thing ever made.

Austin was a real blazing comet across the sky. Took a while for Patrick to grow on me I'll admit, though I think it fair to say he clearly improved his on air work along the way. By the end, when he was pulling New Dan for real and trying out stuff that was outside his wheelhouse, I grew to really like his work.
