Micro 76: A conversation with The Wizard star Luke Edwards

Live from Super FamiCon!

Yep, it's another live episode from a recent convention panel. I'm afraid the sound quality on this one isn't as solid as the recent Metal Gear panel, so I apologize for that. On the plus side, though, the material makes up for it: An interview with The Wizard star Luke Edwards. You know The Wizard, right? The Rainman-meets-Nintendo road trip flick that introduced America to Super Mario Bros. 3? Yeah, that one. Well, Luke was the title character — and he sat in for a panel at Super FamiCon in Greensboro NC last month during which Chris Sims and I grilled him for an hour.

Enjoy! Music, of course, comes from Super Mario Bros. 3. O bviously.
