This week on The Free Cheese Podcast:

Joe spends some time with Ray Barnholt of Retronauts, No More Whoppers, SCROLL, GamePro, and more. We talk about getting a job writing about video games and how that has changed (or not changed) since Ray first entered into the industry.

Ray explains the process of creating a video game magazine and how it differs from creating content for the web. We learn about traveling to Japan and the fortune of having a favorite game that isn’t widely recognized.

We try to figure out the best way to preserve video games, and who is already doing it the right way. Joe tells a story of playing make-believe at the age of 25, and Ray explains the realities of E3.

Note: The beginning of the episode starts with my microphone being a silly jerk. It’s fixed about eight minutes in so don’t worry! Also, the cover image for this post comes from Ray’s tenth issue of SCROLL which focused on his favorite game My Summer Vacation and features an in-depth interview with the series’ creator. The cover art is designed by Jacob Smiley, another rad dude who you should check out!
