Paul Davies talks with Walter Day, a renaissance man who single-handedly
founded e-sports movement and established the centre of the video game
universe in a small town in Iowa. We not only talk about Walter’s love
for video game and how he founded Twin Galaxies but we also explore his
passions away from the arcade.

If you’ve ever wanted to find an episode of Retro Asylum which contains
arcades, high score tables and transcendental meditation then this is
the show for you.
