The Gaming Outsider

The Gaming Outsider Podcast is a show dedicated to video gaming of all kinds with a focus on the community. Here at The GO, we don't subscribe to just one platform, and we realize that we don't have the ability to play every game that's out there. Our goal is to discuss ours and our listener's perspectives on current and former games that we have played while keeping a positive environment.

For our last episode of 2018, we're forgoing our usual format and just giving you a special interview. Scott and Chris. B. sat down with Tom Kalinske, the former CEO of Sega to chat about his experience in the game industry. If you've read Console Wars, you'll recognize his name for sure. He was also the CEO for Mattel and Matchbox and was responsible for keeping Hot Wheels and Barbie afloat. It's a very inspiring conversation, just don't mind the less-than-perfect audio from Tom's end. Enjoy!
