The Console Wars: An Exercise in the Butterfly Effect

The Console Wars: An Exercise in the Butterfly Effect

This week we explore the Console Wars. It feels weird talking about a topic we both love so very much but might seem weird to someone that isn’t a “gamer.” Trust me, this is still a very interesting story. It’s a story of how a young, naive industry quickly turned into partisanship and fanboys.

Every week on Stranger Still, we take the questions you’ve never questioned to ask and try to answer them. We want to make you laugh and teach you something interesting at the same time. So join us every Wednesday for another fun filled learn!

If you’ve got a strange question you want answered ask us on Facebook, tweet us @StrangerStill, or drop us an email at podcast@strangerstillshow.com
