Today, we're talking with Edge CEO & Co-Founder Paul Puey about his own bout with the deadly COVID-19 coronavirus. He discusses his symptoms, the steps he took to protect his family while he recovered, and trying to stay active while combating the infection. We also talk about a new charity initiative that Edge and its partners in the cryptocurrency community are leading to help with coronavirus relief efforts. Paul also tells about some of the awesome features added recently to the Edge Wallet, as well as some sneak peeks at a few new things in the pipeline.

Michelle & Kenny are joined by a very special guest, Howard Scott Warshaw, former member of Atari's first-party developer team and designer of the Atari 2600 games Yars' Revenge, Raiders of the Lost Ark and the infamous adaptation of E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial. We'll talk to him about his time at Atari, what went wrong with the company, whether E.T.'s failure is really to blame for the video game crash of 1983, and his decision to leave the computer industry behind to become a therapist and counselor for tech professionals in Silicon Valley.
