Neil deGrasse Tyson’s podcast Star Talk has an amazing episode on the history of video games with comedian Eugene Mirman, Jeff Ryan, author of “Super Mario – How Nintendo Conquered America” and Will Wright, the incredible creator of the SIM video games and Spore.

I was surprised that deGrasse Tyson focused on violence in video games, but was really impressed by the discussion that follows. This is a must listen for anyone interested in the origins of video games and the nature of gaming in general. But worth it alone for deGrasse Tyson’s thoughts on the “parsecs” reference in Star Wars. Guess I have some podcasts to catch up on.
