    TW35: Video Game Showdown!

    in Hobbies

    I'm really honored to welcome my guests Jon Harrison and Chris Kohler to the show this week.

    I met Jon at Podcast Movement 2015. His field of expertise is easy to appreciate for game lovers. His book and his talks are focused on how the things that you learned while playing video games is the same stuff that you need to know to succeed in life and in business. You can find his podcast called Classically Trained at www.classicallytrained.net and you can check out his book Mastering the Game at www.allegamy.com.

    I’ve never met Chris in person but I feel like I know him very well. He’s one of the gang over at www.goodjobbrain.com. This is one of my favorite podcasts and was actually the show that inspired me to start Trivial Warfare. He’s also part of the crew over at www.wired.com and is the host of their Game|Life Podcast which you can find here http://www.wired.com/tag/gamelife-audio/. You can find his book Power Up here - http://goo.gl/mueVb0.

    The two of them have forgotten more video game trivia than I’ve ever known. When I saw the opportunity to have them go head to head in a Trivial Warfare Video Game showdown episode I jumped at the opportunity. Both guys were class acts and did a great job. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
