We're tipping off the next phase of our 25th Anniversary of NBA Live celebrations with an interview! In Episode #310 of the NLSC Podcast, I chatted to Rod Reddekopp, a programmer on NBA Live 95-2001, and the Lead Programmer of NBA Live 97 and NBA Live 98. Rod shared some great stories of his time working on NBA Live, giving an insight into the technical details of the games, and revealing some cool secrets along the way.

Rod Reddekopp joins the show to talk about his time working on NBA Live, beginning with the acquisition of Distinctive Software and his early work with EA. From there, Rod takes us through the years, from the revamp of NBA Showdown into NBA Live, to the way the game grew and became a flagship property for the company. Along the way, Rod describes his various roles as a programmer on the series, as well as many of the technical aspects of the early NBA Live titles. He also shares some fun stories from behind the scenes, and reveals a few Easter Eggs for us to go hunting for.
