Tom Kalinske (SEGA) - Interview - Helped Take on Nintendo with the Mega Drive / Genesis

April 12, 2019

A few years ago I (Dylan) had the pleasure of talking to the ex CEO of SEGA of America, the legendary Tom Kalinske, an interview that I duly transcribed and which you can read at the link below. The podcast has since taken off and we thought that it would be good to share the audio with you all. I was extremely nervous but trust me, Tom's ability to tell a story (mostly centred around bringing life to Sonic and going toe-to-toe with Nintendo in their prime) carries the podcast and ensures a great listen (when the sound doesn't cut out - oops!)
