HTP Episode 127 – SegaMasterTim

SegaMasterTim is a veteran of the Console Wars, having sat in the trenches at Australia’s Sega Hotline. Yes, not only does Tim have some great perspective of what gaming was like in the era of the Sega Master System, he also appreciates how the US and Australia had very different experiences with early gaming culture. In this episode of Hungry Trilobyte, not only do Tim and I get to talk gaming, but we extend those ideas and look at how our online socialization reflects the changes that started in the 80s.

HTP Episode 012 – Lee Sargent (Lee Draws Stuff)

3ee1

Lee Sargent is a popular artist, known for his childlike interpretations of scenes from Star Trek, Dr. Who, and Stargate. Lee feels passionately about letting people enjoy stories on their own terms, that stories are about escapism and creativity. What I love about this chat is that we get to discuss the balance between an artist’s original intention and the audience’s vision. We also get to talk about Australia’s wildlife and doing cons outside the US, with such awesome events as Oz Comic Con and Supanova in his backyard.

Here’s where you can check out Lee’s work:
