Audio documentary on how brothers Rand and Robyn Miller built The Manhole

Hey folks, got a couple of things I've made related to the book.

First, please listen to and share my storytelling/documentary-style podcast story on the brothers Rand and Robyn Miller — who went on to create Myst. The story is about The Manhole, and more generally how they started making games, and it draws on portions of the interviews I conducted with those two for the book. I think you'll all enjoy this.

Second, if you're interested in learning more about why I'm writing this book, I published an essay on Medium that delves into some of my thinking. (It also includes a few cool quotes from people I've interviewed.)

I'll post a longer update in a few days.
