006 – “Below the Surface Pt II” – Space Quest Historian Podcast

“The Historian wishes you a merry whatever with this special holiday special of the podcast, featuring very special appearances from Vohaul Strikes Back team leader, Frederik Olsen; the proprietor and curator of SierraChest.com, Rudy Marchant; and a special mention from everyone’s favorite corporate weasel, Peter Toleman! The topic is the many easter eggs that lurk within the Space Quest series, and, boy, you’ll never need to check a wiki again after listening to this thing. Also, we take a deep, hard and incredibly long-winded look (and listen) at the Format Countdown — the Historian’s favorite piece of music ever. Happy whatever, people!”

Joined by famed resource spelunkers Akril, BlockMaster and Alan Luckachina, and aided by the invaluable help of Andrew ‘Collector’ Branscom, it’s time to blow the lid off the treasure trove that is the secrets of the Space Quest games.
