The Cane and Rinse videogame podcast

“In the beginning, the Earth was without form, and void.”While MicroProse didn't exactly break the mould with the original Civ, they certainly kept hold of the mould once it was made. Sid Meier's Civilization (30 years ago) and Sid Meier's Civilization II (five years later), offered deep and endlessly compelling yet accessible aeon-spanning strategy that would become a multi-generational franchise. Leon, Chris, Josh and community contributors keep taking just one more turn.http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_485.mp3Music featured in this podcast:1.

Tap into eons of knowledge and experiences, condensed into digestible portions. Highly, highly recommend. “Uniquely outstanding. No fluff and all substance. David does an outstanding job summarizing these biographies and hones in on the elements that make his subjects so unique among entrepreneurs. I particularly enjoy that he focuses on both the founder’s positive and negative characteristics as a way of highlighting things to mimic and avoid.”“I just paid for my first premium podcast subscription for Founders podcast. Learning from those who came before us is one of the highest value ways to invest time. David does his homework and exponentially improves my efficiency by focusing on the most valuable lessons.”“I haven’t found a better return on my time and money than your podcast for inspiration and time-tested wisdom to help me on my journey.“I’ve now listened to every episode. From this knowledge I’ve doubled my business to $500k a year. Love your passion and recommend your podcast to everyone.”“Founders is the only podcast I pay for and it’s worth 100x the cost.”“I have listened to many podcasts on entrepreneurship (HIBT, Masters of Scale, etc.) and find Founders to be consistently more helpful than any other entrepreneurship podcast. David is a craftsperson, he carefully reads biographies of founders, distills the most important anecdotes and themes from their life, and draws commonalities across lives. David’s focus is rightfully not on teaching you a formula to succeed but on constantly pushing you to think different.”“I highly highly recommend this podcast. Holy cow. I’ve been binge listening to these and you start to see patterns across all these incredible humans.”“After one episode I quickly joined the Misfit feed. Love the insight and thoughts shared along the way. David loves what he does and it shines through on the podcast. Definitely my go-to podcast now.”“It is worth every penny. I cannot put into words how fantastic this podcast is. Just stop reading this and get the full access.”“Personally it’s one of my top 3 favorite podcasts. If you’re into business and startups and technology, this is for you. David covers good books and I’ve come to really appreciate his perspective. Can’t say enough good things.”“I quickly subscribed and it’s honestly been the best money I’ve spent all year. It has inspired me to read biographies. Highly recommend.”“This is the most inspirational and best business podcast out there. David has inspired me to focus on biographies rather than general business books. I’m addicted.”“Anyone interested in business must find the time to listen to each any every Founders podcast. A high return on investment will be a virtual certainty. Subscribe and start listening as soon as possible.”“David saves you hundreds of hours by summarizing bios of legendary business founders and providing valuable insight on what makes an individual successful. He has introduced me to many founders I would have never known existed.”“The podcasts offer spectacular lessons on life, human nature and business achievement. David’s enthusiasm and personal thoughts bring me joy. My journey has been enhanced by his efforts.”"Founders is the best self investment that I've made in years."Get lifetime access to Founders

The Lens Ep. 10: Progress and Power in Sid Meier's Civilization

The Lens: Historians and Popular Media

In this episode, Emma and Craig talk with Gabe Moss about the video game franchise Civilization, by Sid Meier. First released in 1991 and now in its sixth installment, the "Civ" games have engrossed generations of players with the opportunity to guide a society from the Stone Age to the modern day. We discuss how the game reflects the assumptions and ideologies of its creators, particularly in its conception of historical progress and inter-civilization competition, as well as the challenges of representing a subject as complex as the entire human past in a playable format.

Sid Meier – The Rise of Civilization

How To Academy Podcast

As the inventor of an entirely new genre of entertainment, legendary video-game designer Sid Meier is a true creative pioneer a godfather to a multi-billion dollar industry. When Sid Meier designed his first computer game at the University of Michigan in the early 1970s computer-games hardly existed – and there were certainly no professional computer-game designers. In the following decades he would create some of the most famous and celebrated video-game titles ever made – including Civilization, a simulator of all of human history that has accumulated over a billion hours of play across the globe. The subject of internet memes, innumerable academic studies, critical acclaim and sometime controversy, the Civilization series has since its earliest days served as a calling card for anyone who believes that video-games are a unique, mature and culturally significant form. In this in-depth interview Sid explores his life and career at the forefront of the industry, with advice for aspiring and professional game-designers that can be equally applied by artists and creatives in all media.
