Ming Chen’s road to Jay & Silent Bob’s Secret Stash all began in 1995, when the college student, video store employee, and Kevin Smith follower developed a fan website based on the movie Clerks. Smith, who appreciated Chen’s work, reached out and asked him to create the website for his production company, View Askew Productions. Twenty-six years later, not only does Chen continue to work on many of Smith’s online projects, but he has also ventured into several other areas within the Kevin Smith empire, most recently hosting a weekly podcast called I Sell Comics! on Smith’s podcast network, SModCo. Chen is not only the technical expert for The Stash, but he is also the perfect person to send out to do the jobs no one else wants to do. Ming now runs the successful Podcasting company, A Shared Universe PodcasStudio. He takes it all with a smile, and is happy to be a part of the team.
