In a continued effort to fill in the gaps in GameCola’s podcast archive on YouTube, here are three more podcasts from our formative years. At least two of these are widely regarded as some of our best podcasts from this era, and it’s in no small part due to the energetic participation of basically everyone who was on staff at the time: Alex “The Jeddy” Jedraszczak, Christian Porter, Elizabeth “Lizo” Medina-Gray, Michael Gray, Nathaniel “Talking About Himself in the Third Person Again” Hoover, Paul Franzen, Stuart Gipp, Vangie (Rich) Ridgaway, and Zach (Not Ridgaway) Rich.
This particular batch of podcasts is a great time capsule of this chapter in GameCola’s history. You get a great sense of individual personalities from such discussion topics as the games that got us into gaming; you get a feel for group dynamics with the way we handle arguments about things we never expected to have to argue about; and you get to feel the pulse of GameCola as a whole with the kinds of things we get excited about from E3. Have a listen!
