Welcome to another episode of the RetroPod, where this week we conclude the SegaGuys “Console Wars” trilogy by sitting down with the author of the brilliant book and the brains behind the CBS documentary, Blake J. Harris.

In pack plenty into this hour long chat as we discuss Blake’s gaming roots, his influences (and challenges) while researching and writing the book, delve into the artwork behind the documentary, and get the lowdown on how the Sega (good guy) vs Nintendo (bad guy) narrative came to be.

We hope you enjoy this episode, and many thanks to Blake for giving us his time. We look forward to welcoming you back on soon.

Welcome to another episode of The SegaGuys RetroPod. In this show James (@TheSegaHolic) talks through his 15 top Mega Drive/Genesis games with Dan (@Swooper_D).

The backstory to this show is that Dan sent James a Mega Drive as a gift six months ago and, after acquiring an Ever Drive cartridge, James has been playing through the library and has chosen these 15 games as the ones he’d be happy to have on his shelf if it were all he could own.

What do you think of the list? Were you screaming out at your Alexa or tearing your headphones out in disgust? What games would you change?

Let us know in the comments or on Twitter @SegaGuys.

Welcome to another episode of the RetroPod and what an episode we have in store for you.

As we prepare to celebrate our 1st birthday here at The SegaGuys, we are so very proud to be able to bring you an exclusive sit down with non other than the former President and CEO of Sega of America, Tom Kalinske.

We had the absolute privilege of covering a wide range of topics with Tom, from his roots in the industry to taking on Nintendo to working with Hayao Nakayama to his thoughts on the Sega Saturn and so much more.

This episode was so enjoyable to record and we truly hope our listeners enjoy tuning in just as much. We both also want to take this opportunity to thank both Tom and Al Nilsen for giving us their time, it was an honour to speak to two absolute Sega legends.

Welcome to another episode of the SegaGuys and to another episode of "My Favourite SEGA ...", where this week we welcome yet another brilliant Sega community guest to the show. It's a real pleasure for us to sit down and chat once again with the one and only 'KC', host of RadioSEGA's brilliant podcast, The Sega Lounge.

KC kindly hosted us on the Lounge last year, so it's only fair we return the favour and have him on the RetroPod to chat about his gaming history, favourite Sega game/music/console and much more.

As always when we catch up with KC, there are laughs galore in this one. Thanks again KC, it was great fun.

You can find KC @KCRadioMan on Twitter, and find the Sega Lounge @TheSegaLounge. Visit www.thesegalounge.com for the latest podcast news and to stream episodes and remember to check out RadioSEGA at www.RadioSEGA.net.

Dearly beloved gamers, you join us today on the 20th anniversary of the Dreamcast's untimely demise. Yes, on 31/03/2001, Sega ceased production of the console and took themselves out of the hardware business forever.

However, we are not going to mourn the Dreamcast. No, on this episode we have something different planned, a celebration of the life of the Dreamcast by taking you all down memory lane with James & Dan.

We will take you through our Dreamcast journeys, from hearing about the console for the first time, playing one for the first time, importing our units, the games we played, and much more.

The legend will never die ...

Welcome to another episode of The SegaGuys RetroPod and to another in our My Favourite Sega series, where we welcome a member of our community onto the show to chat about their gaming history, their favourite Sega console, Sega game, and piece of Sega music.

This week we sit down with Anthony Cox as we take a deep dive (get it?) into Ecco the Dolphin and get muddy with some classic Sega arcade music.

Enjoy, and thanks once again to Anthony for taking the time to speak with us.

April 24, 2021

Welcome to yet another episode of The SegaGuys RetroPod! On this weeks show, James & Dan take another trip into Sega's past, to a moment which proved pivotal in the direction the gaming industry would take.

In 1993, Sega of America led by Tom Kalinske came close to forging a deal with Sony which would see the two Japanese tech giants join forces, creating the proverbial uber console and in doing so alter the course of both companies making them unrecognisable today. As fate would have it, Sega of Japan led by Hayao Nakayama, vetoed the deal, citing that Sony were not experienced enough in the gaming field and therefore not worthy partners.

The rest, as the saying goes, is history.

Join us, as we take a step by step look at just how the future could have turned out ... and what we would have lost had the deal taken place, asking the ultimate question: would YOU change any of how things went with both Sega and Sony?

Enjoy the show.

April 24, 2021

Hello and welcome all to a very, very special episode of The SegaGuys as James and Dan welcome a true Sega legend and icon to the show. Yes, on this episode we had the absolute honour and privilege of chatting with Al Nilsen, the former head of Global Marketing at Sega of America from 1989-1993.

Al needs no introduction, his name is synonymous with the Genesis (Mega Drive), the eventual look and design of Sonic the Hedgehog, and was part of the iconic team that drove Sega to No.1 in the market at a time in gaming when Nintendo ruled store shelves with 95% market share.

We cover a variety of topics with Al, from his starts in gaming, to his journey to Sega, the evolution of Sonic, the global launch of Sonic 2 and the famous Sonic 2sday, the launch of the Mega CD, his thoughts on the 32X & Saturn, and much, much more.

We both truly hope you enjoy this episode as much as we enjoyed recording it and once again, Al if you read this, thank you once again for taking the time to chat with us. We had a blast (processing) *sorry, couldn't resist!
