Background[edit]

Cesca grew up in Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia. He graduated from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor's degree in Political Science. In his personal life, Cesca is an avid bicycling fan. He estimates that he rides between 50 and 100 miles a week.[2]

Cesca has written weekly columns in The Huffington Post since August 2005.[2] He has also contributed to AOL's WalletPop blog[3] (Now DailyFinance.com[4]) and Manhattan Magazine.[5]

He began his career in media working as an intern for the Don and Mike Show in Washington, D.C. Later, he founded Camp Chaos, an alternative media production studio based near Philadelphia for which he animated and performed voices for the cartoon Napster Bad. He currently runs a new media production company called Snark Rocket.[6]

Cesca directed music videos for Iron Maiden, Yes, Everclear, Motley Crue and Meat Loaf. He also designed the album and sleeve for the Yes album "Magnification" and the DVD release "Symphonic Live".[7]

In 2003 Cesca conceived and produced ILL-ustrated, a VH1 animated comedy series which premiered in October of that year.[8] In 2006, Cesca edited and directed the animated series Kung Fu Jimmy Chow for Heavy.com.

About Cesca, Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks has said that "Bob's writing is totally fearless. That's what I love about it." [9] In 2013, after whistle-blower Edward Snowden revealed NSA overreach, Cenk said, "Bob is good guy, smart guy, I like him, but ... there isn't anything Obama does that [Bob] wouldn't jump to the immediate, enormous and 110% defense of."[10]

Cesca is currently host of the Bob & Chez Show, a weekly podcast, where he discusses news with collaborator Chez Pazienza.[11] Elvis Dingledein was the previous co-host of the show.
