As Sonic's 30th anniversary approaches, we start our celebrations a week early by welcoming to the Lounge Dave Bulmer and Chris McFeely, hosts of Sonic the Comic the Podcast.
This week, I'm joined on the Lounge by the amazing Tom Campbell. Radio presenter, part of the Cultaholic Wrestling website and YouTube channel and, most importantly I'd say, Sonic the Hedgehog fan. As you probably know, everyone's favorite blue hedgehog is turning 30 next year and Tom decided a good way to celebrate that was to put together an audio documentary about the games, the cartoons, the comic books and the fans that make the blue blur such a beloved character. This has been one of the best times I ever had recording an interview and that's saying a lot so I do hope you enjoy getting to know the legend that is Tom Campbell.
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.
We're going old school this week with Daz and Taggsta, hosts of Aussie-based show, Arcade Perfect Podcast. Learn more about their search for the best and worst arcade game conversions and find out if they can get an arcade perfect score of their own in our challenge.
It is finally time to welcome The Saturn Junkyard to The Lounge. This week, Brian and Simon join KC for a chat about their blog and community and play a technically troubled edition of The SEGA Lounge Challenge. Tune in to find out the winners of our Space Channel 5 VR giveaway.
As the North American anniversay of the Dreamcast draws near, we invite Tom Charnock, from community site Dreamcast Junkyard, to come and chat about the console, his epic quest to find a barber and more.
