On this episode, special guest Brad Hayden and Danny talk about the history of video games. Danny has never been what you’d call a “gamer,” and Brad was born with a joystick in his hand. The pair discuss games from 1940 today and beyond. Here’s a fun fact: A physicist named Willy Higinbotham invented the first true “video game” in 1958. It was a ping pong type game he called Tennis for Two. Willy was also part of the team responsible for creating the first nuclear bomb. Later in life he became a leader in the movement for nuclear nonproliferation. Have a listen and learn about Willy, Steve Russell, Ralph Baer, Nolan Bushnell, Ted Dabney and whole lot of other people’s ties to Atari, Nintendo, PlayStation, XBox and more.
