    Episode 9 - Father's Day Sega Genesis Special

    Episode 9 - Father's Day Sega Genesis Special

    Welcome to the third and final episode of season 2 of Evoking the Sublime.

    I wanted to do something a little special on this episode. Oftentimes, I talk with people about the Sega Genesis, but it’s rare that I find people that hold the same reverence for the system as I have. So I decided to bring on the only person that I know that shares that same love for the Genesis as me: my father.

    We sat down to reminisce on the games we have loved for years and had such a wonderful time. Please enjoy.

    I love you, Dad.
