TCW Podcast Episode 024 - The Project and Others in the Field

 

We cover the developments in Alex's work, and others doing research into video game history. We delve into history in general and question how accurate can it really be? Even though the work done now will be superseded by work done in the future it is still valuable, and we are in a unique time of being able to record historical figures give accounts in their own words.
