Episode 43 – Game Shows

This week join Steve, Andrew, and eventually, Jonathan, as Steve leads a discussion on the legendary Goodson / Todman production team and the shows they created. We also deconstruct the genre to discuss the game props and mechanics, gender, and consumersim vs. “high brow.” And of course, we try to have a few laughs along the way. We surveyed 100 people and asked them “what does Steve geek out about?” And, if you guessed “game show buzzers”  – you’d be a big winner. 😉

Then be sure to stop back two weeks from now on October 6, 2016 to listen to our next full length episode. You can leave a comment on this page and can always reach us via email at: feedback@tvhistorypod.com
