Game Dev's Quest is a cool local Oregon Podcast about game development and I was part of their most recent show. In this episode I talked about my history of BBS's and the launch of our new games BBS. If you wanted a deep dive of the games we launched and my absolute love for the retro days of BBS past this is a must listen! I've embedded the audio podcast above but I recommend heading over to Airpodcast to listen below or, even better, subscribing to Game Dev's Quest on the Podcast client of your choice.

"Jon Dodson is back to talk about launching the Cheerful Ghost BBS! We discuss what a Bulletin Board System is, its history, and why we are still interested in them today. We also talk about the history of games and technology and its preservation. Then we finish with a goals check-in."

This was a super fun podcast to listen to! Rett and Taylor seem like really good guys. Listening to Jon talk about BBS's brought me back to high school lol. And the section about goals was inspiring. Jon is one of the best about setting and attaining goals; I know I need to be better about it.

All in all, a great podcast!

Thanks Adam, I had fun being on the show. Also thanks for the nice words about goals. Staying on track is really really hard. Takes a lot to claw my way back to keep on target.
