Welcome to a series of special podcasts, hosted by your friends at Radio Free Nintendo. Former podcast host and website director 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 interview features Rob Stevens, but our long-time audience will know him better as "Rick Powers". Back in the day, he was one of our most outspoken writers, a strict community moderator, and an invaluable leader who was once the acting Director for two months -- in secret! We discuss all the misdirection, tough decisions, classic interviews, and yeah, even Denis Dyack and Penny Arcade.
