Welcome to the first in a series of special podcasts, hosted by your friends at Radio Free Nintendo. Former host Jonathan Metts is sharing his extensive interviews with current and former staff members from Nintendo World Report [the very site you are now reading, which is also still widely known as Planet GameCube (which is one of the long-term prices we've had to pay for the privilege of changing our name at the peak of our popularity).] These interviews are part of his research for an upcoming book about the long-running website, focusing on its vast array of dedicated, all-volunteer creators. This paragraph is painfully thorough because I want to reuse it for each subsequent release from this series, which is planned to continue throughout 2016!
This first episode is all about Michael "TYP" Cole, who has been a major contributor, both ahead and behind the scenes, in various capacities for well over a decade. Mike describes how he joined the staff as a teenager and stuck around to develop lifelong friendships and valuable career skills, while playing a ton of video games in the process. Plus: the long and winding evolution of Radio Trivia, and Mike turns the table on his interviewer.
