Video Games: A Tale of Two Pongs

Introducing, Forever Ago! Our brand new kids history show is all about where things come from. Like, have you ever wondered who made the first sandwich? Or who wore the first pair of shoes?

Host Joy Dolo is joined by coin-collecting sidekick Kai to kick off the show with an epic quest to figure out how video games got started. With the help of intrepid reporter Cari Spivack, we’ll visit the age of dinosaur computers, early arcades and ponder the question: how do we decide who gets credit for big ideas?

Plus, we’ll hear listeners’ ideas about the future of video games and befriend some talking cows.
