Eric Pederson is one of the current hosts of the ManaTank Podcast and Factory Sealed, known for his pineapple, Mega Man, Final Fantasy, Level 5, and Studio Ghibli love, and the amazing amount of things that will cause bowel movement within him.
The crew originally met Eric when they were with Voldemort Towers, but at this time, Eric was simply a "behind the scenes" guy. A bit after the crew switched to Mana Tank, Eric made his first podcast appearance and filled in for an MIA Max Gonzalez. He would then make one more one-off appearance before the 2011 New Years Live Stream, where he would technically become the new fourth host, as Max left after the New Years Stream. In these early podcast days, Eric would generally talk about Demon's Souls and stuff that makes him shit himself, not really much different then now. In June of 2012, Eric, Matt, and two of Eric's friends, Ben and Aron, would go to E3. In late-2012, while still being on the MTP, Eric went on to be the main host of Factory Sealed .
