Brent Bushnell, co-founder and CEO of Two Bit Circus is my guest on this episode. One of the most prolific entrepreneurs and tinkerers I know, Brent has been creating interactive installations for years and has assembled them into a travelling carnival that kicks off next month in Los Angeles (tickets are still available).

We retrace Brent’s childhood growing up with his father Nolan Bushnell, founder of Atari and Chuck E. Cheese’s, and how that inspired his mission to reinvigorate STEAM education at Two Bit Circus.

Along the way, Brent has been involved in many amazing projects, developing early touch-based interactive technology with the restaurant chain uWink, as well as installations for the LA-based event series Mindshare, making a giant Rube Goldberg machine for OK Go and other incredible machines during his time at Syyn Labs.

This was an incredibly fun conversation. I hope you’ll enjoy it too.
