What I’m listening to: Thomas Koch, founder, Guitar Sarasota

The third game in a Playstation 3 series called Uncharted. It’s about a treasure hunter who visits hidden worlds and runs into bad guys while solving mysteries. My boss plays a lot of games, and he says it’s one of the best series he’s ever seen.
