Throughout the YoGPoD, Simon repeatedly mentions James, his housemate. During the early episodes of the YoGPoD, Simon presumably lived somewhere in Gloucestershire, but moved down to London sometime around late 2009, where he shared a house with James. Not much is known about James, though Simon did mention in one episode that he was recording the podcast as James was cooking dinner for a lady-friend. It appears that James was/is not entirely into video-gaming or internet culture, as suggested by Simon when he claimed that James' friend walking into the room looking confused because from his point-of-view Simon was talking to his laptop. Simon later moved in with another housemate, called Simon, when he moved down to London.
