"After Dark" is our new, experimental podcast series. By "experimental," we mean "shorter than the normal podcast." In the premiere, you'll hear Tim and Richard talk about StarCraft II, a clever little indie game from the makers of "Blackthorne." Parents beware: One of these men is shirtless.

Cleveland native Tim Spaeth grew up in a happy household – a household with a father whose major client happened to be an Atari games distributor. This led directly to Tim's first nickname: "The kid who got Atari games before anyone else." Indeed, he knew Pac-Man and E.T. were colossal bombs weeks before the rest of the world, and the resulting celebrity brought him great pleasure.

Through the years every aspect of Tim's life has been touched by gaming. He mastered typing thanks to Space Quest, honed his poker skills on The Sierra Network, and learned to hate after a particularly traumatic game of Tecmo Super Bowl.

Today, Tim lives in Chicago with his three kids and strives to find that perfect balance between family, career, and Warcraft. He enjoys broadcasting, martial arts, rock and roll, growing and shaving his beard, singing show tunes to the homeless, and losing at Mario Kart to his lovely, talented, and amazing girlfriend.

In late 2008, Tim became the producer and host of the GameCritics.com Podcast, and he's thrilled to be bringing GameCritics' unique editorial voice to a brand new medium.

Nice podcast guys. Honestly, I didn’t think the podcast would be very good with Richard on it (joking). It was the fact that you both seemed to label yourselves StarCraft fans lite or StarCraft fans from afar. 🙂 But the exchange was good and I liked some of the incites into the game and franchise.

I don’t want to over-commit, but yeah, that’s the intent.

This week: Episode 39
Next week: Episode 40 (AKA Episode 39 pt. 2)
Week of 9/5: After Dark 2
Week of 9/12: Episode 41
Week of 9/19: After Dark 3

And so on. We’ll see how it goes. If we run out of show ideas and After Dark becomes an outlet for my singing, then we’ll probably scale back.


omg so now we get to listen a podcast every week?
