149 - SEGA Master Tim

This week's guest is (the?) SEGA Master Tim, who worked for SEGA of Australia's hotline back in the 90's. In this personal and in-depth interview, Tim opens up about his childhood, how SEGA games helped him during troubled times and how he ended up getting his job at the company. Oh, and the dread is back. Can Tim master the SEGA Lounge challenge? Stick around to find out.


Welcome back to The SEGA Lounge! Believe it or not this is episode 149!

As a way to celebrate our milestone hundred and forty-ninth episode but not really because I only looked at the number just now, I've got some exciting news. If you go to thesegalounge.com/store you will find our brand new merch store with Lounge-themed items. For now, you can get a SEGA Lounge logo t-shirt, a SEGA Lounge mug and a Seal of Approval t-shirt as well. These are all very reasonably priced, I think, and they are a way of supporting this podcast and helping me with the bills while at the same time owning some very cool looking items. Please let me know your thoughts on the items we currently have available for purchase and hit me up with ideas for other designs or types of merch you'd like to see in the future. I'm currently using my personal Streamlabs store as a way to sell these items so please do let me know of any issues you find in the process of purchasing merch. You can now represent The SEGA Lounge wherever you go or whatever you drink. I'm partial to the mug. It's said to have medicinal properties. If you fill it with water and then drink the water, it's said to hydrate your body. Wonderful! Again, thesegalounge.com/store is the place to go. Thank you for your support!

This week, I'm joined by a or maybe even the SEGA Master! Straight from the land down under it's my pleasure to welcome SEGA Master Tim! Tim worked for SEGA of Australia's hotline back in the 90's, which is where the "SEGA Master" title comes from. In this personal and in-depth interview, Tim opens up about his childhood, how SEGA games helped him during troubled times and how he ended up getting his job at the company. Oh, and the dread is back. Can Tim master the SEGA Lounge challenge? Stick around to find out.
