Ode To Video Games: The Blue Wizard Is About to Die
Ode To Video Games: The Blue Wizard Is About to Die

AIR DATE: December 6, 2013

Seth Flynn Barkan spent much of his time growing up playing arcade games. He loved them so much he wrote poems about them and sketched the heroes of the games. The poems were published a decade ago and have recently been republished. Barkan joins us to talk about the golden age of video gaming and why those games should live forever.
