Welcome to Branching Narratives, a brand new podcast hosted by USgamer! Each week we'll be bringing in fascinating people from around the games industry, whether they be journalists, developers, or influencers, and talk about how they got into games, their outlook on the industry today, and more.
Hosting this new endeavor is my friend Jeff Green, who some of you will remember from his days on GFW Radio. Jeff has been around the games industry for many years now, having worked at Computer Gaming World, EA, Popcap, and other ventures. His long experience gives him the sort of outlook that's quite rare in this business, and he's built up quite a few interesting relationships as well.
Don't expect this to be an "old white guy talks to other old white guy" podcast, though. From the start, we were determined to give a platform to a wide variety of voices from all walks of life, and to that end our first guest is Austin Walker, who obviously has plenty to say about the events of the past couple weeks. Our ultimate goal is to provide interesting conversations about the games industry each week—from all different angles, perspectives, and walks of life.
The first episode launches Wednesday, June 10, with the first season comprising seven episodes in total. If it's a success, we will be back for a second season, and hopefully more beyond that. The podcast is now available on Spotify (see the link below) and Stitcher, and will be fully ready to go on iTunes by Wednesday. If you're curious about the show, you can also catch the special preview episode on the Axe of the Blood God feed.
A huge thanks to Jeff for working with USG on this project, and I'm genuinely excited to see it finally come to fruition. Please look forward to the first episode on Wednesday!
