The Ted Dabney Experience Podcast Episode 21

Rich Adam joined Atari in 1978, initially working on the company’s pinball games before being assigned the role of Junior Programmer on Dave Thuerer’s Missile Command. Rich went on to take the captain’s chair for the hard-as-nails Gravitar, arguably the pinnacle of Atari’s vector game output, and the game for which he is most well known. Talking to Rich was a real treat. He was by turns amusingly candid and quietly philosophical, and Paul was finally able to take further notes for The Official TDE Hot Tub Logbook.
