This week's episode is dedicated to tennis great Serena Williams, who was beaten recently by a young upstart. Serena, if you're listening (and reading those show notes), you are welcome to come play TENNIS from Activision with me anytime. I assure you, you will have no trouble beating me.
That's right, in episode 140, we're playing the 1981 Activision (squee!) game TENNIS. "What's this one about?" you ask. Then I ignore you because, really, that should be self-evident.
We're talking about this sports game, Bert & Ernie, the origins of the cliché "Tennis, anyone?", and the curvature of space/time. Also, we've got a nice little short fiction piece about boys growing up in the early 1980s...until things take a turn...
Thanks to Mike Mann for his "Mad Mike" update theme.
