My guest this episode has the greatest range of any video game developer in history. Howard Scott Warshaw worked for Atari in the early 80s and created what many consider one of the greatest games of it's era in 'Yar's Revenge' and also one of the worst in 'E.T. The Video Game.' In this episode we discuss how he got his start at Atari, the process of programming games at that time, the economics of making video games, authorship in early games, creating Yar’s Revenge, meeting and pitching a game to Steven Spielberg, the 5 week rush to develop E.T., the video game crash of 1983, the idea of a first product life cycle, the inner workings of and rise & fall of Atari in the 80s, life after Atari and new beginnings as the Silicon Valley Therapist, and more.

My guest this episode is actor William B. Davis, who was a regular on The X-Files for nine years playing the secretive Cigarette Smoking Man. He will make his return this January on FOX when The X-Files comes back for a six-episode miniseries. We discussed his character surviving into the revival, how the actual act of smoking informs the character, treating alien ‘true believers’ with rational skepticism, the perception of atheism and the skeptic community, Climate Change and the danger of mixing climate denial with politics, forming the William Davis Acting School in Canada and what the Canadian acting scene is like, his views on death and mortality, the nature of open political conspiracies, and more!
