JURASSIC TIME MEMOIRS: A Conversation With SEAMUS BLACKLEY (PT. 03): REMNANTS OF A LOST JURASSIC WORLD

Jurassic Time - The Podcast

PART 03 of 03. Some explicit language is present. Seamus Blackley is the creator of the world-famous XBOX gaming system, but before that he was the producer and programmer of the 1998 PC game "Trespasser- The Lost World: Jurassic Park". Despite high ambitions, it was sadly met with production hurdles & a deadline that crippled the game. Despite its failure, Blackley's success with the XBOX reinvigorated his career, leading to yet another opportunity to explore the gaming world of the Jurassic Park franchise. He was tasked to create a game that took place after the original film trilogy. Even though an impressive pitch trailer and other materials were created, the game never got made. It had been called: "Jurassic World". Join Derrick Davis as he discusses with Seamus Blackley both of these Jurassic Park games, what went wrong, and how they refused to remain extinct. Interview conducted by Derrick Davis in August 2022.

Gastroegyptology with Xbox Creator Seamus Blackley

PreserveCast

It’s been roughly a year since the world was plunged into a COVID lockdown – and many of those quarantining turned to baking and cooking as a way to pass the time. For Seamus Blackley, particle physicist, inventor of the Xbox and fermentation expert, he was able to resurrect and recreate Egyptian bread using traditional tools, techniques and yeast dating back 4,000 years. This week, we’re talking about preserving the craft of historic bread baking with a renaissance figure in this unique and fascinating field of yeasty experimentation.

Gastroegyptology (BREAD BAKING) with Seamus Blackley

Ologies with Alie Ward

Sourdough starters! Ancient yeasts! Why we need/knead dough! And why you don't need to buy a starter to start. Polymath, particle physicist, inventor of the Xbox, and truly delightful fermentation nerd Seamus Blackley joins to chat about his kitchen adventures resurrecting dormant yeasts from 4,000 Egyptian baking vessels, plus wild yeasts, the infuriating myth of “yeast scarcity,” the beauty of everyday objects, the debt we owe our ancestors, the joy of getting to know your dough plus tons of tips for newbie and experienced bakers. The first half is all about the history of baking and yeasts and some hot Egyptian gossip, then we roll up our sleeves in the second half for how-tos. Forward this episode to anyone who bakes, who wants to bake, who lovingly feeds their jar of yeasts, who is intimidated by it or who just needs a lesson on how to slow down and enjoy the dormancy period we’re in right now. This episode’s got it all. Including some truly shameless bread puns.

Ancient Baking with Seamus Blackley

Forked Up

Video game designer (he created the X-Box!) and baking enthusiast Seamus Blackley created a loaf of bread from a sample of Egyptian yeast that is 4500 years old. Hear all about how he did it as well as his Skyrim obsession and most importantly, how did the bread taste?!? Also, Matt and Michelle comment on the latest in avocado tech, the dubious history of Tabasco hot sauce and Marie Callender's pies that you should avoid.
