The very deserving recipient of an anniversary podcast, Sonic the Hedgehog turns 30 years old in 2021. Leon, Darren, Leah and guest John Linneman of Digital Foundry recall their formative experiences with the Blue Blur on both 16-bit and 8-bit systems, as well as the many, many conversions and emulations released since. We also hear from community correspondents with their positive and negative memories and feelings about the SEGA mascot’s debut outing.

1. Green Hill Zone by Masato Nakamura
2. Scrap Brain Zone by Masato Nakamura
