Description

Have you ever wondered how YouTube sausage gets made? DrunkFriend (not a dating app) aims to learn how different YouTubers in the retro-gaming space deal with the ups and downs of maintaining successful channels. Learn about their inspirations and influences to getting started, their philosophies on creating content, and their processes for video production. There will be plenty of fun stories along the way!

We discuss whether his art degree (and subsequent student debt) was worth it, what a Metroid film would be like, and a Dutch oven is referenced a few times. (The two are sadly unrelated.) We also delve into the world of coffee, but nothing snobby whatsoever. I mean it's friggin Keurig cups and Folgers and Maxwell House and stuff. You'll enjoy this one!

Episode 36 - Pilotwings 64 composer Dan Hess
5580

Merry Christmas! Our guest this week is Dan Hess, otherwise known as the composer of the Pilotwings 64 soundtrack! He talks about the development of said game and a few other titles he was involved with, as well as his personal favorite video game soundtrack (not really what you'd expect!), what it was like to deal with Nintendo, and why he eventually bowed out of the video game industry. Lots and LOTS of great insight here provided by Dan, who's a great talker and easily one of the best guests we've ever had. Dan even has his keyboard on hand to help demonstrate how he came up with some tracks. Trav and Alex also answer some email questions about what video game character would make a good president, the Hebrew Bible, and Alex rambles about Chrono Trigger for nearly 10 minutes. But really, this episode is all about Dan Hess. Listen and enjoy!

You better beware. Listener emails ask what Trav does for money and the hosts take turns answering how they would flip a classic game into a different genre altogether.
