"Bob coleco was doing the like pulling the stories together for the show, but rich was hosting it and keeping it moving. And you know, like rich also kind of had some broadcast style chops to him, of course. And you know, he was. He was really the perfect host for that incarnation of us podcasting because he did he did keep it on track. When rich laughs. It was. It's it really sucked. When when rich left it didn't like they're, you know, he, he had to move he. He had had to move back to Boston family reasons and all this other good good stuff. But it was definitely this feeling of just like we try to keep rich on for something and then it didn't happen. And I remember going to the guy who was my boss at the time, and this was after Greg cassava had taken off for a and I'm going to him and saying, hey, you know, we're like it might not seem like it now, but time is gonna come here were really going to regret letting rich Gallup walk out the door. And he just kind of, I don't know. I don't think he knew how to take that and. And that was rich was which was out. And so I started hosting the show around that time, but I, I don't know. I never especially wanted to host the podcast. It was a little bit easier to react to the host. Than it was to drive the conversation and. Be a part of the conversation. So. I did that for as long as it made sense. And then the same guy told, hey, you are undervaluing rich Gallup. Kicked me out of games. Showed me to HR who you know they went through whatever they, you know, whatever trumped up carpets they had made up to not make it seem like wrongful termination. And you know, then I was out and and to me this stuff that I missed it was it was the podcast. It was doing that podcast. It was because it was fun. It was. It was free form enough to where you know you're just you're kind of just reacting stuff. You're in the moment. You're just kind of making it happen. And to me, that was the most fun part about the podcast and doing anything live like like on the spot and stuff like that. So. Some months later when when we were working with digital Commons, the company that would become whiskey media. It. It was easy to sit there with Ryan and say, hey, here's the here. The two things about working at gamespot that weren't a fucking grind that we we didn't. We hadn't really started to actively dislike, and it was a podcast and you know that idea that kind of free for me live type stuff. You know the the tech to to go live on the internet was not what it is today. So you know that took some time. They're still video. I think it's on our twitch channel. There's an old video of me like pointing a webcam or I don't even know what it is phone. Probably not a phone, pointing something at a TV on the day that GTE four came out. But anyway, I don't know. We podcast because we had to like I felt like I felt like a real need to do it. So even before we had a name for the website, even before we had a name for a podcast. And all that sort of stuff. We started a podcast almost just to keep busy in a way because things were just slowly coming together. And I want to say that. We were, we were getting paid. I wanna say we were technically employee's at that point, but we may have actually started that podcast before we really kind of become. Part of the crew part of the comic vine slash. I guess there's no slash. It was comic vine and they were building political base Buca the car site, the car site, then. And so we started recording..

"The first thing that changed was that the company hi Toro had to swap out its name because they're already was Japanese lawnmower company called hi Toro and they didn't want to be confused with it. So they got the brainstorming a new name for this company. Minor reportedly suggested they use Amiga which is the feminine version of the Spanish word for friend amigo. So he supposedly suggested this, but also did not actually like the suggestion that was one of those things they kind of said, but what didn't really have a whole lot of feeling behind. But no one could come up with anything better so they stuck with it. They made a few games for the Atari twenty six hundred under this company name and they made some peripherals for the video game industry. But that only worked for a short time. And the reason I say this is because in nineteen eighty three just a few months after the company had. Been coming together in the first place. The bottom fell out of the home video game market. This was the infamous video game crash of nineteen eighty three, and I've done full episodes about this. So I'm just going to have a super short overview here to explain what happened leading up to nineteen Eighty-three. There were a ton of companies. There were all in the home video game space. You had console companies you had in television. You had a Tari you had coleco and others. They're all creating video game consoles. You had tons of third party game developers of varying degrees of skill and business sense making games for these systems. And then you had executives who behaved as video games were always going to be a gravy train. And in some cases, they were making truly astoundingly dumb decisions such as making more copies of game than there were consoles out. On the market. If you have five hundred thousand consoles on the market and you make a million copies of a game, that's five hundred thousand extra copies that don't go anywhere. So this all came to a head in nineteen Eighty-three and eventually the market collapsed in on itself could not sustain this sort of activity. The video game crash had an enormous effect on the company that was just about to become Amiga. It was making that transition from high Toro to Amiga video game. Companies were folding left and right companies like Tari which had been really cash rich. Just a couple of years earlier now found themselves over extended and in possession of massive inventory that they could not move and Amigas business of selling to that industry was pretty much wiped out. Moreover, investors were now terrified at the thought of backing a video game console..

"That's the big one them to go. I, I wanted to keep a coleco vision that we got actually found original ritual. Kid. I wanted to keep it. I don't know what happens blue track, but yeah, but. Sure. We also had to get the hardy boys books clear in that those were clear while we are dozen. The national archive by this point is kind of just like free free reign. No, but the nudie MAGS, they're looking at our. Yeah, American warrior. Hey, just getting back real quick to the whole strangers thing, traitors thing, stranger things thing. See, even their name is fund up. Have those comparisons kinda hindered they help, I think, yeah, it really helped us. Thank you know, like we were scared obviously when we need an obstacle mount, and then we saw the trailer in sauces mar having grow. We're all right, right. At the time, it actually kinda helps us to get inside. Finance, everything pushes through the production and that I think the only the only light downside to it was like coming out of it when people start seeing it comparison started getting, you know. So you gotta get over that a little bit? Yeah, the critics. I mean, critics are from that we have been favorable or the movie, but at the same time, the ones that happened in always reference strength and. So, I mean, we're living in host range trait of things a call from a cultural phenomenon. It's one of those things that twenty years people who are young now, look back stranger things kinda way we did with the or goings. So it just is what it is, you know, but it definitely been double edge sword. Sure. I could see. I've read. I read some of the reviews from both sides, getting bad it on the bad reviews because there's always gonna be douche douchebag and there's, there's people that just they can't get themselves into something. Their sole intent is to just rip something down the and I fucking hate those people and and read it. I read one review of your movie from somebody that like I just wanted to punch him in the face afterwards because not only did he should on the movie, but then he went into this whole thing. Calling the eighties, nostalgia craze going to end soon in audiences are gonna tired of it. There's a couple of things I gotta say, number one, you out of your fucking and you, you probably didn't grow. Up in the eighties or you didn't ever experienced childhood because how can anybody ever tire of something from simpler that? Like, what do you? What do you guys have to say something like that? Like when you see some like jackass that writes them bullshit. I know it's probably hard for you guys to to fire back at them, but like it's got like just burn a fire inside of you and somebody like breaks down the whole genre and says, all this is going to die. We'll provide the form. Just looking at the fact that we wrote this at the base of the same time, duffer bras, writing, stranger things. I know similar time it took a long time to get made, but I know that carry who've been on a draft in almost it was being developed clearly. It was something like ice and I think what it is, people who are our age when become filmmakers than we wanna tell stories. We wanna tell stories that affect people the same way other stories affected us. And so this, this movie was a manifestation of that Ross might think clearly generational..
