Hello, my name is Jonathan. Welcome to the Story of Video Gaming.
BEWARE – AMATEUR PODCAST IMMINENT
I want to preface this adventure with a caveat – l am just an armchair historian and avid gamer. I am by no means a professional researcher or writer, and what you hear at first may seem unpolished.
What I hope to accomplish with this podcast is a casual, yet thorough glance at the story of what I believe is the most vibrant entertainment medium ever established.
While there is a plethora of informative literature and videos published on this subject, there is a serious lack of historical material offered over the airwaves. I hope to jump into this void, and provide a (hopefully, mostly complete) narrative history on the subject of video gaming. I will begin with the far past and, with luck and perseverance, continue researching and releasing content that will fill in all the gaps that lead up to the story of video gaming as we know it in our own time.
This is my first attempt at creating a podcast, and I welcome all criticisms and suggestions. If you have an idea for an episode, I kindly encourage you to share it. I hope to publish new episodes every week, but of course, we will have to see how that goes in the future.
Game on, friends!
