134 - Jord Odell of SEGA Shop Europe

134 - Jord Odell of SEGA Shop Europe

This week, I'm joined by Jord Odell, E-commerce and Social Media Manager at SEGA Shop Europe, which includes both the UK and European storefronts. Jord is the marketing wizard that connects the fans and Numskull, the people running the shop. She kindly agreed to have a chat with me about her career and her love for video games and was also kind enough to let me put her through another brutal edition of The SEGA Lounge Challenge.

Hello and welcome to The SEGA Lounge, everyone!

First of all, I apologize for the lack of episode last week. Sometimes even the best laid plans fall apart and scheduling interviews with people who have their own schedules and busy lives is not an easy task. Fortunately, we are back this week with a brand new episode and, even though the season is very, very close to the end we still have a couple more interviews you won't want to miss.

In podcast news, this week I'm delighted to tell you that The SEGA Lounge is now also available on iHeart Radio. There are now very, very few podcast services where you can't listen to the show. So whether you're an iHeart Radio user or you use a totally different podcatcher, chances are you'll have The SEGA Lounge readily available to listen to.

Be sure to check out the SEGA Shop, be it the UK or European version, and try your best not to spend a whole lot of money on all the cool stuff they have available! As a reminder to my non-European friends, everything you hear on this episode applies to the European store only. Maybe we can get someone from the US SEGA Shop on the show in the future...

On a more personal note, I've been thoroughly enjoying Yakuza: Like a Dragon. And while I wasn't going to do it at first, I'm preparing a review of the game as well as a special interview to be aired very soon so stay tuned for that. If you've been playing Like a Dragon too, let me know on Twitter and remember that we have a built-in voicemail feature in our website so you can also use that to contact me. Your message might make it into a future show.
