This week's guest may be the only person we've ever interviewed who's worked for Atari, Nintendo and SEGA - the magic three! Faran Thomason kindly gave us some of his time a while ago for a text interview but we simply had to chat to him to get more of those stories out.

Especially a treat for Atari Jaguar fans, Adrian talks to the producer, QA tester and level designer himself about Bubsy, Baldies Cybermorph and the abandoned Jag version of Mortal Kombat 3 among many other lovely retro gaming stories about all three legendary companies. He also talks about making consoles in China, Black Lives Matter, what the Tramiels were really like and working with the legendary Lance Henriksen. Enjoy!
