Patrick Delahanty

In 2013, Patrick Delahanty moved from Newton, Massachusetts to Petaluma, California to be the Web Engineer at TWiT. He is responsible for keeping all the web-based operations running smoothly including the behind-the-scenes encoding system and regularly codes systems and apps for TWiT including many internal tools, multiple Apple TV apps, and a Roku app. He holds a degree in Computer Science from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and regularly codes in PHP and sometimes Perl. You can see him interviewed in episode 42 of Coding 101.

Outside of TWiT, Patrick is perhaps best known as the creator of, the largest source for fan convention listings on the Internet. He is also a producer and host for the AnimeCons TV podcast. Prior to this, Patrick was the founder and host of The Chibi Project, where, for over 15 years, he was responsible for conducting horrible experiments on anime toys for no good reason.

Patrick is an advocate for fan conventions. He has attended nearly 200 of them and is one of the founders of both Anime Boston and Providence Anime Conference. He has hosted his popular improv event, Anime Unscripted, for over 20 years at over a dozen different conventions in two countries and in five time zones.

In 2014, Patrick used up a little more of his 15 minutes of fame when he and his wife created a custom "Dancing Baby Groot" from Guardians of the Galaxy that went viral.

Back in the 90s, Patrick was the voice of the fighter pilots in the award-winning Macintosh game Escape Velocity and its sequel, EV: Override.

Patrick's work career started in 1995 as a "Websmith" for The Internet Company in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the original owner of the domain. He later moved on to work at The Monster Board, RivalWorks,, did some consulting, and then returned back to before leaving the monsters behind for TWiT.

He's not on Twitter much anymore, so you should follow him on Bluesky at

Patrick is often trying to submit Apple TV apps for review by Apple's App Store Connect and constantly has to explain that he's a TWiT employee and absolutely does have permission to submit these apps which allow for viewing TWiT content. Most recently, he was waiting on approval for an app for This Week in Space.
