TCW Podcast Episode 035 - EA The Teenage Years


We go over the transition of EA from a small idealistic company where programmers are rock stars; to the start of the company becoming the large enterprise it is today.  We cover Trip Hawkins later years at the helm of EA and the rising businessman Larry Probst who would later succeed him as president and CEO in the early 90's.  We go over the founding of EA Sports one of the most recognizable franchises in videogame history.
