Getting my emotion on - with Big Red Potion

Last Saturday I was fortunate enough to be a guest on one of my favourite podcasts - Big Red Potion. Unlike so many gaming podcasts Big Red Potion takes a single topic or question and devotes an entire show to it. This week the erudite and well-dressed hosts, Sinan Kubba and Joe DeLia (I'll leave you to guess which one is well dressed) set the question of 'What was your most emotional game, or game-related moment'.

I was joined by Paul Rooney, a friend of mine from The Gamer Scene community who's also an extremely talented artist. But the biggest guest was Kellee Santiago, the President of ThatGameCompany, responsible for such awesome works as Flow and Flower on the Playstation Network.

We talked for well over an hour on our chosen moments and it was a truly awesome experience to have a conversation with such incredibly interesting and intelligent personalities. Usually I'm quite modest about my audio appearances - simply because they've been awful in the past - but this one felt so much better and I hope it sounds as interesting as it was to record.

Both Kellee and Paul had some really unique moments they talked about and it goes to show that gaming has, and always was, a vibrant medium to elicit such a range of personal moments.

Big Red Potion #26 can be found here and I thoroughly recommend subscribing as each episode has great guests and some fascinating and unusual topics.

So until the Soulful Gamer podcast starts up (did I just suggest that?), this will be the only place you can hear me um and err my way through a subject close to my heart. Enjoy - and here's a Healslime for good measure!
