This week I catch up with Larry Asberry Jr. to discuss his favorite games of 2014, the state of college football in the Big 10, as well as the growth of Open Forum Radio and his podcast ‘Prove Your Point’. We also look ahead to 2015 and make some not-so-bold bold predictions for the gaming industry. Enjoy.
May I suggest the Hotline Miami soundtrack.
I may be an acquired taste if you’re not familiar with the game, or the style, but it’s been the perfect thing to help me find the balance between zoning out and extreme focus I’ve needed to get some of my more complex tasks completed the past couple of days.
2015 begins with a conversation with Gamertag Radio founder Danny Peña about the 10-year anniversary of his podcast. We also cover some of Gamertag Radio’s highlights in 2014, the current state of podcasting, and the potential of crowdfunding for Gamertag Radio’s past, present, and future. Enjoy.
As the end of 2014 approaches, Parris Lilly joins me to talk about the year in super hero movies, Destiny, GamerTag Radio, and being a football dad. There were plenty of other tangents, segues, and one-off mentions as well – at this point, it’s par for the course. Enjoy.
2K’s Director of Community and Customer Service, Stephen Reid, is my guest this week. While Stephen has had a lengthy career in and around the video game industry, we focus on his time as Editor in Chief of PlayStation.com in Europe, his philosophy on community management and interaction, and life at 2K during a busy holiday, and launch season. We also discuss his adventures co-hosting the podcast Nerds Who Wait, and their show’s magical ability to compel breaking news from Hollywood every time a new episode is published. Enjoy.
Russ Pitts returns to the podcast to talk about life after Polygon, life in freelance journalism, as well as the process behind and effort required to complete his upcoming book ‘The Making of Defense Grid 2: The Complete Story Behind the Game’. We also discuss the growth of Take This, the formation of a 501 (c) (3) non-profit charity, and the future impact Take This looks to have in the world. Enjoy.
This week I catch up with Parris Lilly during his quarterly visit to the podcast. We cover a number of topics this week including, but not limited to: Bill Simmons, the state of ESPN, Ray Rice, the state of the NFL, racial identity, this Fall’s primetime television lineup, and (to lighten the mood) Destiny. Enjoy.
