Interview with Vi Grey

This entry is part [part not set] of 24 in the series Hack the Planet

In this episode of the Hack the Planet Podcast:

We meet with Vi Grey who answers all the questions we’ve had about the Nintendo Entertainment System since we were kids but were too afraid to ask. A prolific developer of homebrew NES ROMs, Vi Grey helps us understand the present and future of innovation on the NES platform. We also discuss his work with polyglot files featured in PoC||GTFO. This episode itself is in fact a polyglot, check the mp3 metadata of the file on the RSS feed for more information.
