In this episode we speak to Glen O'Connell about his career in the games industry as well as sports PR.

Starting out at Psygnosis  he shares some great experiences of visiting games magazines helping promote new titles and his early thoughts working in the industry. However when Sony were ready to launch the PlayStation things soon changed. Titles such as Wipeout had everyone wanting a piece of the Playstation. Glen discusses taking along import consoles to HMV etc to help create buzz.
 
As well as this we discuss his time in PR roles for EA and Rage Software where he met David Beckham, Wayne Rooney, Mr.T and many more well known sports stars.
 
Staying in PR with other companies he shares so many stories and some of the key moments in his career so far. 
 
We hope you enjoy the show and if possible leave us an iTunes review.

For this special bonus episode of the Maximum Power Up podcast, we have an almost full house* as the team gather to keep each other sane during Lockdown 2020.

What games do the team reach for in times of trouble? What games will they play over the coming weeks as they're "staying home" like responsible adults? What tips do they have for you, the listener, to help you get through this time? Does Paul even like videogames? Find out the answers to all this and more, in the Pandemic Pod.

As ever, if you like the episode or have any feedback, we'd love it if you'd hit us up on the socials and leave reviews. However, self-care is more important. Look after yourselves and each other first. We'll be okay.

*Jake and Tommy would have made it if kayjoon had his act together and invited them in time. Although editing six people was hard enough.
