Free Play 92 | Tony Hawk Nostalgia


About This Episode

If this podcast had an origin story… Tony Hawk would be the genesis of that story.  Matt, Kate, and I all played a lethal amount of this game, and it’s sequels, growing up… and cannot wait to play the upcoming Tony Hawk 1+2 remake bundle coming out in September!  So, sit back and enjoy some stories about how this game shaped our growing minds in the early 2000s, this week on the Free Play Podcast!
