Unsung Heroes: Video Game Pioneer and "Brave Bessie‪"‬ The History Guy

    • History

The History Guy podcast features two stories of unsung heroes! Exclusive to the podcast, the History Guy tells the story of Jerry Lawson, "the father of modern videogaming," an early video game pioneer who rubbed shoulders with Steve Jobs and led the development of the Fairchild Channel F, the first video game console to feature removable game cartridges. The second is about Bessie Coleman, an African American and Indigenous woman whose passion for flying in the early years of flight technology led her to become one of the first women to earn a pilot's license. Despite obstacles, Coleman became a respected and talented Barnstormer - an aerial performer and trick-flyer. Both are parts of history that deserve to be remembered.
