TCW Podcast Episode 40 - Sierra On-Line

We delve into the second half of the story of Sierra.  We cover how they managed to regroup, and rebuild from the company being close to a complete collapse.  We cover many of the classics of the era.  Even though many of them are not as fondly remembered today; they are still important for pushing gaming on the PC to new and impressive heights.  Unfortunately we also cover how Sierra was torn apart after its acquisition, and Ken Williams leaving the company shortly thereafter in the late 90's and early 2000's.
