Since launching IrrationalGames.com we’ve been thrilled by the public’s reaction to our monthly features From the Vault and Irrational Behavior. Today we are excited to announce the pilot episode of Irrational Interviews. Irrational Interviews features Ken Levine and Shawn Elliott sitting down with members of the entertainment industry and having a frank and open discussion on a wide variety of topics.

For the pilot episode we are happy to have Todd Howard, Executive Producer and Game Director from Bethesda Softworks.  Howard has been at Bethesda since 1994, with countless classics under his belt including The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and most recently Fallout 3. Howard is well known for his sense of humor and his drive to make great games.

Head over to the forums for the usual lively discussion.

    Okay, now you guys are just showing off. Right as other studios were catching up with you main podcast, you start a juggling act by introducing another show.

    First of all what a fantastic idea. I loved irrational behavior, and now this is like a dream come true. I’d love to hear from anybody from the old Ion Storm days, Romero, Spector(as mentioned previously by others). Or Looking Glass. Another interesting interview would be Tim Schafer of double fine. Again awesome job guys looking forward to more.

    This was really cool to listen too. Sometimes I feel I’m not being able to play other games because of CoD:MW2, but it’s good to hear that Tim plays about as much as I do as well. hahahaha
