A Short History of the Genesis Gems Podcast
Nick Stephens and Rob Luther
The Genesis Gems Podcast started with a simple phone call from Rob Luther to Nick Stephens. Rob and Nick had just met via the Retro Junkies Super Show when Nick messaged Rob about a new podcast he was starting. It was an instant bromance.
After the two had agreed to start a Genesis game by game podcast, they reached out to well respected retro gaming encyclopedia publisher Derek Slaton to be the third host.
While the three were hitting it off, schedules started to clash and the podcast went on a short hiatus. Rob and Nick then invited Retro Junkie veterans Landon Long and Josh Witt to join the team. But, again schedules conflicted and the team shortly called it quits.
In 2015, Rob had decided to part ways with the podcast which led Aaron Hickman to become a fill in while he was gone. Aaron was an amazing addition to the show and became the official third host.
Aaron and Nick decided to join with Justin and Michael to create the Bit Bros. Network. This new alliance is sure to be an amazing one!
