Episode 143: Walter Day


Paul Davies talks with Walter Day, a renaissance man who single-handedly founded e-sports movement and established the centre of the video game universe in a small town in Iowa. We not only talk about Walter’s love for video game and how he founded Twin Galaxies but we also explore his passions away from the arcade.

If you’ve ever wanted to find an episode of Retro Asylum which contains arcades, high score tables and transcendental meditation then this is the show for you.
