Interesting Game Industry Interviews

I love reading good interviews with people in the games industry. Not the latest PR gaffe by some dumb Sony exec but ones that give a glimpse into the thinking behind some of the great games being made. I'll post a couple to get things started but I have a couple requests for this thread: Please do not just post a link. Clearly indicate in the post who is being interviewed, why they matter (no faceless PR drones) and any highlights that make this worth everyones time.

Who: Brad Wardell
Position: Ceo of Stardock the makers of Galactic Civilizations I & II. Was also a developer on those projects.
Interesting bits: They have put their sci-fi mmo on hold in favor of a turn based strategy game with a fantasy theme. Aparently at the time of the interview Atari (formerly interplay) owned the rights to Master of Magic, Master of Orion, X-Com and Star Control with no plans to actually makes games based off of those IP.

Who: Will Wright
Position: Creator of Sim City, The Sims 1 & 2, working on Spore
Interesting bits: There is a ton of info out there about spore and the design behind it. A lot of this interview is not new info. But Mr. Wright does have some interesting things to say about multiplayer games in general and their community approach to Spore.

Attacked by tweeeeeeees!
