Join David as he chats with Electronic Arts founder and games industry icon Trip Hawkins. Topics covered include the beginnings of EA, 3DO regrets, and even the age-old "violence in video games" discussion.

Be sure to also listen for Trip's thoughts on Nintendo's business practices, cyberbullying, and a conversation with a pirater of his games. There's a load of juicy nuggets here whether you're simply a gaming fan or are intrigued by the inner business dealings during major moments in the industry.
