The TDE Podcast Episode 12: Atari Researcher Carol Kantor


Episode 12 of the Ted Dabney Experience podcast is out now! If you enjoy reading, you’ll love the other project I’m involved with:

Hired by Atari in 1976, Carol Kantor became the videogame industry’s very first market researcher. Kantor talks to us about the game-changing yet quotidian minutiae of market research in the late Seventies, the graphic genius of the late George Opperman and those controversial accusations against Nolan Bushnell.

You can check it out on our website here.

We can also be found on all the usual Podcast hosts including:

Apple Podcasts

    Hey Tony,

    This is an Excellent interview! I am partial to Atari but this is still – Excellent.

    Btw; Carol’s poem after the end of the podcast is actually quite good! Feel free to pass that along to her.

    All the Best,

    Mike B.
