Bad End

The Decade in Tim Rogers, ft. Tim Rogers

Episode Summary

New Videogame Journalism pioneer, game developer, video personality, consultant, friend of Suda51 Tim Rogers joins us to talk about the decade in pretty much everything videogame related. And Coke Zero.

Episode Notes

You might know Tim Rogers as any number of things: a pioneer of "New Videogame Journalism," a prolific game developer, a video personality, an industry consultant, a friend of Suda51, Mr. Rogers' relative, a CPA. He is all of those things, and that's why he's uniquely qualified to talk about all of the videogame-related things that happened this decade. And the non-videogame related things. Like why rich people are all sick, and why Coke Zero exists.
