New Tetris Podcast Coming Soon
The Tetris Company will release The Tetris Podcast, its first-ever podcast this fall.
As the Tetris brand approaches its 40th anniversary, The Tetris Company has announced that it will release its first-ever podcast this fall. The Tetris Podcast will explore the amazing origin story of one of the world’s most enduring video games, with surprising stories of how the iconic game has touched people in so many ways worldwide.
Using original interviews with Tetris creator Alexey Pajitnov, Henk Rogers - the entrepreneur that helped bring Tetris to the world and Tetris CEO Maya Rogers, the podcast tells the dramatic tale of how Tetris emerged from behind the Iron Curtain to become a part of the fabric of modern gaming.
With four decades of history to explore, the story charts revolutions in gaming and real-world revolutions, from the collapse of the Soviet Union to the rise of esports.
Tetris has a fanbase who have grown up alongside the game. And a dedicated community who are pushing the boundaries of competitive gaming. Those voices reveal how Tetris has accompanied people in their most joyous and difficult moments.
Hear how a games professor brought thousands of people together by creating a record-breaking skyscraper Tetris game. And how playing Tetris helped a cancer patient discover the meaning of life and art.
The Tetris Podcast is produced by The Big Light, an award-winning podcast production company from Scotland, with acclaimed audio producer Laurence Cook and executive producer Fiona White.
“We’re thrilled to announce the upcoming release of The Tetris Podcast. With the Tetris movie released earlier this year, we know that our fans want to learn more about the game’s history. 2024 marks our 40th anniversary, so it’s the perfect time to reflect on the last forty years and celebrate the impact Tetris has had on so many people worldwide. Working with the team at The Big Light on this project has been great because they are so passionate about Tetris and truly understand the power of The Tetris Effect,” says Tetris CEO Maya Rogers.
The Tetris Podcast will be available this fall on all major podcast platforms.
