The Ted Dabney Experience


The Ted Dabney Experience podcast features long-form conversations with insiders from the golden age of the coin-operated video game industry.

Launched in April 2020 by Richard May, Paul Drury (Retro Gamer magazine), and Tony Temple (The Arcade Blogger), The Ted Dabney Experience focuses on conversations between the three hosts (all influential figures in gaming) and their guests. Each episode invites the show’s guest(s) to share stories from their time in the industry and discuss the elements that influenced game development at the time.

Gateway episodes include Q*Bert Co-Creator Warren Davis (episode 01), ACAM Founder and President Gary Vincent (episode 03), and Doug Wismer of Electrohome (episode 06).

Who is Ted Dabney, you may ask? Dabney is a legendary figure in the video game industry — he co-founded Atari with Nolan Bushnell in 1972.
