Friend of the Blog 4 — Karl Kuras and the Video Game Newsroom Time Machine

October 1983 marked the 40th anniversary of the debut of Computer Chronicles as a nationally televised program on PBS stations in the United States. To celebrate, I spoke for more than three hours with Karl Kuras, creator and principal host of the Video Game Newsoom Time Machine, where we discussed the origins of Chronicles and the show’s early history. Since 2018, Kuras’ podcast has gone month-by-month through the key news headlines in the arcade, home video game, and computer game industries from 30 and 40 years ago (and often beyond.) He also publishes interviews with industry figures and other individuals, such as myself, who conduct research into the history of technology.
