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.
Celebrating International Podcast Day in advance, this week's guests are James and Dan, aka The SEGAGUYS, a couple of veteran SEGA fans who host The SEGAGUYS RetroPod. I had a great time recording this interview and learning about the guys' love for SEGA and how they got together to start the podcast. I also learned a lot about how playing Sega Rally can be a meditative experience. Listen to the episode if you want to know more about this awesome SEGA podcast.
