    #23 - For Easter is a Sceners Christmas with Steeler

    #23 - For Easter is a Sceners Christmas with Steeler

    25 years ago in Northern Germany, an Amiga/C64 demoparty called "Symposium" and a PC demoparty called "Mekka" decided to merge into one common demoscene event on Easter, bringing the home computer and PC demoscene under one roof - Something almost unthinkable at the time.

    This was the beginning of a tradition that was eventually carried on by Breakpoint and resulted in Revision, the world's biggest pure demoparty.

    Ah, the kids we were...! But wait, what about kids today? In the second half of the episode, we explore how kids perceive the digital world today, how they enter it, concepts and pitfalls of current media education, and if the demoscene can still be relevant for this generation.

    So what better time of the year to invite Steeler, orga of Mekka & Symposium as well as a media education advisor these days, looking all the way from the 1980s and compare it to the next generation's approach to creativity and tinkering.

    Lean back and get ready for a MASSIVE episode!

    #22 - Beyond the Scene: Algoraves with Alex McLean

    #22 - Beyond the Scene: Algoraves with Alex McLean

    For the first time in a long while, we are venturing beyond our own realms, and invite a guest from a scene not so different from ours: We have a chat with Alex McLean, a key figure of the Algorave movement, about the similarities and differences of our scenes and creative process. Let's see if we can draw some inspiration from each other!

    Algoraves have been an ever-growing trend over the past ten years, in which musicians livecode their music to please the dancing masses.

    Also, we chat about the Revision Satellites, share some exclusive insights into the survey they held earlier in the year, and reflect on Lovebyte that just happened prior to recording (and get Okkie to say "...in DOOOOOS" one more time.)

    Send us questions, suggestions or voice messages to zineradioshow@scene.org

    #21 - Tiny Intros with Superogue

    #21 - Tiny Intros with Superogue

    As David Attenborough would put it: Today, we look at life at the smallest scale. Superogue from Marquee Design joins us to tell us more about Tiny Intros, the pleasures of hunting that last byte, and why it is not just for hardcore coders.
    Also, we finally get an answer to okkie’s burning question on the origins of TPOLM’s group name and wallow in memories of a time where we were not only immature teenagers, but also produced some awesome diskmags.

    #18 Themed music compos, IQ talks Shadertoy

    #18 Themed music compos, IQ talks Shadertoy

    We kick off this month with an audience question: Are themed music compos a net positive or net negative? Is there a loss of interest in music compos in general? After that, a discussion about demos using stock assets and commercial engines - is it worth it? Should it be shunned upon? Finally, the legend himself, IQ joins us to tell us the story and beginnings of Shadertoy, how he views the growth of the site and what makes it special, and retells some parts of his stellar career, how his beginnings in the scene allowed him to have it, and his views on the direction of the scene.
