Heath Andrews has been a student of pop culture ever since he found himself to be the only student in 3rd grade who regularly watched "Get Smart" on Nick-At-Nite. Ever since then he's been engrossed in way too much media with a growing collection of music, books, comics, TV on DVD box sets, and a video game collection that could rival a brick and mortar store.

Since 2016 he's run his own YouTube channel under the moniker of The Critical Android where he livestreams video games and uploads podcasts about pop culture and Frasier.

In 2017 a game was released for PC simply titled “Walden, a game.” As suggested by the title, it is indeed a game about Henry David Thoreau and his time at Walden Pond. The idea of a game where you play asThoreau and receive visits from Ralph Waldo Emerson seemed to be the pinnacle of metacommentary on video game characters. Little did we know that that it wouldn’t end there. No, now we have the opportunity to play as someone even more philosophical who’s also the son of God: Jesus Christ.
