OutRun – Episode 041

It’s time to gas up the Ferraro Testabossa, select our favorite synthwave radio station, and feel the wind in our hair as we take a drive with Sega’s OutRun. Join us as we take a ride through Yu Suzuki’s career and talk about the birth of Taikan games.

How did OutRun’s memorable music nearly become lost forever? What type of innovations did Suzuki want to include in Sega arcades? Why was the USA too dangerous for a research mission?

As is the Podouken way we take plenty of detours to cover things like the artistry of airbrushing, Pastblaster’s movie ranking scale, horny Mahjong games, iconic car asses, and the worst Star Wars movie.
