Join our Tom in conversation with author, journalist, lecturer, voice actor and generally cool dude, Patrick Hickey Jr.
Patrick is the author of “The Minds Behind The Games”, and is one of the world’s preeminent video game historians. We talk about why video games don’t yet get the acclaim the deserve by the mainstream, and why we could be studying video game storylines at school and college within the next two decades.
Along with his writings, Patrick is also a prominent video game voice actor, starring in the titular role of “The Padre”, available on current gen consoles very soon. We discuss how he got his break in the voice acting world, and how it can be very easy to slip between characters in everyday life!
To wrap up the show, we chat about the state of current pro wrestling, what we’re looking forward to over Wrestlemania weekend and why Pete Dunne loves the Nintendo Switch!
