The Yogscast, incorporated as Yogscast Ltd, are universally recognized as one of the most intellectually tantalizing, visually sumptuous, orgastically exciting, and gut bustlingly funny random iterations of total and utter nonsense that has ever spawned into the ever expanding entertainment mind control hegemony. It also tastes delicious, and 9 out of 10 YouTube viewers give it a double thumbs up, the others died because of an epicness overload but still rose and gave them one thumbs up (the other thumb fell off). The Yogscast is given just the right bit of comfortably local yet somewhat exotic spice, as most of the members hail from England.

The amazingly talented cast is comprised by 10 giants of the YouTube video publication community. They are, in no particular order of significance: Lewis Brindley (who stars as the characters Xephos and Zephos), Simon Lane (who plays as the characters Honeydew and Honeybeard), Hannah (who is known for the character Lomadia), Duncan (who is most well known for his playthroughs as LividCoffee and his pieces of art), Sips (made famous by his Orcs Must Die! playthrough), Sjin (who joined the Yogscast team after displaying masterful work on the Shadow of Israphel set) and Rythian (one of the original goons). Although they haven't appeared in recent videos or podcasts, Yohi, Vyrian and Pierson are also members of the Yogscast because of their status as goons. The Yogscast website team is headed by MintyMinute. Recently the Yogscast has added new members such as Liam MacKay (Nilesy), Martyn Littlewood (InTheLittleWood), John Cochrane (Hybridpanda), and most recently Kim Richards (Nanosounds). Zoey Proasheck, long time friend of the Yogscast, has made a channel as well as Sam Thorne (Strippin).
Some of the original Yogscast staff have been fired. Peva was the host of the Minecraft Servers and Website Creator and was fired due to a falling out between members of the Yogscast. Tinman was the website manger and was fired because he was accused of stealing between $18,000 to $21,000 from the Yogscast Website. Heso was permanently banned because he stood up for Peva along with a few other Web moderators and Admins.
A musical group, named Area 11, are also part of the Yogscast, and publishes their music under the record label 'Yogscast Studios', usually on iTunes and Amazon. Area 11's leading members are Tom Clarke (Sparkles*) and Alex Parvis (Parv), who are both officially members of the Yogscast, though Kogie is starting to play with Martyn too.

The Yogscast's name comes from the term YOGS, meaning Ye Olde Goone Squade, the name of the World of Warcraft guild in which the founding members met. As a WoW guild they used to be led by guild-master Mearis. After realising Mearis' methods of guild management were far from acceptable, the Yogscast and Yognau(gh)ts (who joined the guild because of them) decided to leave. Hearing of their devious disrupting of his guild, Mearis then banned any mention of the Yogscast or Xephos. For his actions, Mearis was perma-banned from the Yogscast Forums.
Apart from their stellar commentary, occasionally spectacular gameplay (which tends to quickly spiral to either ends of the spectrum), and incredibly amazing singing talents (Especially seen in Simon, from the Minecraft series), the Yogscast also perform many of the production duties associated with their videos, podcasts, and internet content.
The Yogscast is supported by many of their friends who participate in various roles in quite a few of their videos, sometimes behind the scenes, and sometimes as a part of the production. Needless to say, the Yogscast wouldn’t be what it is today without their help and support.
The Yogs have been 'casting' now for just over three years, and since they haven't killed one another yet, there's a good chance they will continue to flood the internet with their particular brand of raving, lunatic hilarity balanced by the occasionally insightful game review, at least until one of them is forced to get a real job.
They produce intermittent, irreverent, and often dazzlingly unfocused (but somehow startlingly poignant) podcasts, with no set schedule. They would like to be a bit more reliable, but so far Simon has resisted all attempts to be set on a regular schedule. The Yogs produce a veritable plethora of video content, released on YouTube via the BlueXephos Channel, which is focused somewhat like a lazer strapped onto the back of a Minecraft chicken (simultaneously sharp yet breathtakingly chaotic) - on the ever expanding world of computer gaming. They are proud indeed to contribute to an industry that is slowly but deliberately degenerating the intellectual capacity of youth throughout the world! The Yogscast have also spread out to other Yogscast related YouTube channels, such as Yogscast2.
