Join Cameron Reilly, the John Romero of Australian podcasting, and his good buddy Richard Giles, while they get all “blokey” with JOHN THE FRAKKIN MAN ROMERO.
Now, if you’re one of those people who just said “who” then… you must vacate the premises within 7 seconds. Your lease has expired. You are an ex-parrot.
If, on the other hand, you said “holy BFG! John The Frakking Man Romero!!!! The guy who brought the world WOLFENSTEIN 3D, DOOM, QUAKE, DAIKETANA and about 96 other games in the last 30 years! The guy who put the id in ID Software! The first rockstar of gaming! The guy who gave us the BFG!”… then you may stay.
Listen in as we chat about
- what it’s like to be Romero
- what made Doom and Quake so frakkin huge
- what he’s working on now with Slipgate, his new gaming company
- the music of Ronnie James Dio
- how he met his wife online
And much much more!
PS I’d like to apologize to everyone (esp Garth Kidd who apparently has some deep-seated issues to deal with) for the slurping noises on the recording. But DAMN that was a good Chuppa-Chup. Yoghurt. Mmmmm.
