Join the Acquired Limited Partner program! https://glow.fm/acquired/ (works best on mobile)   Acquired looks back at a monumental IPO from a *much* different era: Electronic Arts. We’re joined by EA’s founder Trip Hawkins to tell the incredible story of how he built the company that made video games mainstream. Starting from his high school years as both a geek and a jock, to then working for Steve Jobs as one of Apple Computer’s first employees and later completely changing the world of sports with John Madden Football, Trip always had a clear vision for what EA could become and what magic could happen at the intersection of technology and the liberal arts.   Sponsor Thanks to Perkins Coie, Counsel to Great Companies, for sponsoring Acquired Season 4.
