The 42cast Episode 33: The Leonard Herman Interview

This week we talk about video games again as we sit down with author and Game Scholar, Leonard Herman. We discuss growing up with video games, how Leonard got into writing on the subject, and some of his memories of Ralph Baer; the inventor of video games.

Leonard has been been writing articles about video games since the early 80’s. He’s one of the first authors to write about video game history and has compiled the most comprehensive work on that subject. Now, in its fourth edition, Phoenix IV is a must-read for anyone that’s really interested in the subject.
