Episode One — The Importance of Preservation

OKAY. SO. IT IS HERE. The first episode of KakeBytes.

I couldn’t think of a more perfect interview for the first episode! Patrick Scott Patterson has been a friend of the show since the beginning and is responsible for the many many great opportunities that I’ve had since production on the show has started.

Patrick Scott Patterson and KatyKakes (that’s me!) at the 2017 Houston Arcade and Pinball Expo

In today’s interview, we delve into the past of a young PSP and his first love: PAC-MAN, the National Video Game Team, his video game archival and preservation efforts, the conflicts that have arisen over the years as a result of sharing said history, and what we (the people) can do to help aid in preservation efforts of our own.

Edit: You can officially subscribe to KakeBytes on iTunes! Google Play is still pending, but I promise you will not miss when it goes live! You can also download the episode here!

To keep up with everything that Patrick Scott Patterson is involved in you can keep up with him at:

Under the cut I’ve got some videos: the first is a clip from PSP’s panel on the disappearing neighborhood arcades of the 1980’s and the second is the Facebook Live video in which he unearths those four mythical Akira prototypes.

I’ll be posting the full audio from his panel (along with Brian Colin’s) on Patreon for my dear Patrons, along with some other photos from events I’ve gone to with Scott this year.

Be sure to follow KakeBytes on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Twitch, and Patreon!

Until next week,
