The Dragoncast Podcast Episode 48 - The One with Tom Kalinske

Hey there. As a kid (or maybe even now), did you ever take a Flintstone vitamin, play with Barbie or Hot Wheels, play with He-Man or She-Ra (or watch the TV show), or spent hours on a Sega Genesis? If you have, then you owe a big thanks to the marketing genius of former CEO, of BOTH, Sega of America & Mattel, Tom Kalinske! The guy literally built my childhood... and he was gracious enough to spent some time on The Dragoncast! Take a listen as Tom shares with us some personal stories about his time at Mattel and what went on behind the scenes of the console war between Nintendo and Sega!


So what do you think about Tom's time at Sega of America? Did you own a Sega Genesis during it's prime? My younger brother and I would spend hours playing 1991's EA NHL Hockey and 1993's EA NFL Madden. Love the fighting in hockey and hated the muscle spasms in football. Great times, though! What about you? What were some of your favorite games on the Genesis? Let's hear it in the comments, friends. Later!
