intellectually godlike strawman of internet neckbeards incarnate. Since he is a good friend of TJ, Galen has been a recurring guest on Drunken Peasants Podcast, most notably during early episodes. Galen was known as the kid in school whose uncle worked for Nintendo. Galen was once a fan of TJ, but then became his friend when they met in real life."There's more to life than a label. Actions are more meaningful and important than attachment to ideological terms."— Galen 
Galen puts an extreme emphasis on individuality, claiming that great minds do not think alike, and that a deep psychological revolution is necessary as philosophy is not a theory but an activity.  He is very vocal of his opinions, as shown on the podcast when he describes himself as a fallibilist. He also has a dislike for labels, as he has a hard time even grouping himself with atheists, but, despite this, he openly admits that TJ and Scotty have had a hand in forming how he thinks, which may or may not be a good thing, research still needs to be done on this."Galen is a sexy god with the balls of gold."— Pimpmunk
TJ and Galen initially met in person after Galen and TJ met through youtube. They met at a diner in New Orleans that shitty service and substandard food, and soon then b acme fast friends. Despite never having had the chance to meet TJ's father, Galen once noted said there are a number of parallels between him and Thomas James Kirk. He also finds that he has a lot in common with Scotty.  These statements were actually said as a very clumsy apology for making Scotty lose his shit over stupid bickering. Galen rarely uploads videos, but the ones he has are pretty good.
On Drunken Peasants
He first appeared on the second episode of the DP where he unsurprisingly went on a nearly hour long Galen-sized tirade. He returned to revolutionize other episodes during the earlier days of the podcast. Half of the DP fanbase despise him and the other half find him interesting and intelligent. The hate can generally be attributed to his antagonism toward Leelah Alcorn on the podcast, his position on suicide, his "debate" with Egghead, or the fact that some think he is full of himself. Despite being a somewhat controversial figure during all of his appearances, TJ has said we've yet to see the last of Galen.
After over 200 episodes, Galen finally returned to the podcast to debate Egghead on the subject of his GoFundMe scam during episode 275. Galen utterly destroyed Egghead in the debate, so much so that Paul had to step to Egghead's defense. Galen earned the respect of the DP fanbase, even from those who didn't like him. The "debate" in name only was one of the most polarizing events in all of Drunken Peasants history, continuing the tradition of Galen episodes being of legend. He had a ton of research done of the subject and read from some notes while grilling Egghead. Some fans thought he was way too harsh, though others, notably the DP Subreddit, praised Galen as their lord and saviour for crushing the cringe. Later during his appearance on Pimpmunk's hangout, Galen further articulated his beef with Egghead and claimed he would be making an omelet in honor of the night.
- Egghead: ...The Egghead Sho-
- Galen: Explain yourself, do it!
BeyondPhere was a huge supporter of Galen's research and extended her support in the live chat and on Twitter. Both prior to and following the debate, Phere got into a tweet war with Rybi Jenkins over the circumstances.
On Amazing Atheist
Galen has made several appearances on TJ's main channel as well as his documentary Amazing. His appearances on TJ's channel were almost completely in movie reviews (not associated with DistressedWatcher) The reviews were mostly for the Transformers movies. Galen also did a lot of the thorough research for TJ's video on Steve Shives.

"This is the kind of guy that sits around eating Baby Ruths, probably takes them out of his ass or something. He's just a fat pile of shit."— Galen's response to the garbage pail dude in episode 69.
"I adore Scotty, I find that I have a lot of likenesses to Scotty."— Galen showing respect to Scotty after their debate.
"I don't want to get close to you because I think you're a homosexual rapist."— Galen talking to G Man.
"I would like people to- if they have any problems- to go read "Of Mice and Men" because when someone's so stupid that they defraud people, fuck people over anything, y'know, fuck 'em. I'm with shooting Lennie in the fucking head because it's just this ridiculous so- y'know it's kinda like "Animal Farm" so certain people should be more equal than me and they should get a ??? pass while others can't."— Good luck trying to decipher the meaning of this statement.
