UPDATE: Listen to our more recent interview with Steve Downes, recorded just prior to the launch of Halo 3.
Guerrilla Phone Interview: Episode ONE.
Editor: DJ Stigmutha
It is with profoundest thanks that ‘Tied the Leader’ welcomes the Master Chief, more realistically known as Steve Downes.
This week, he was gracious enough to sit for an interview about his experiences in lending vocal talents to Bungie in aid of their endeavor to bring the Master Chief to life. To maintain the faceless identity of The Chief, this interview was conducted via telephone from an undisclosed location.
I bid you welcome to listen in on our conversation.
I ask only several considerations…
1. I will not criticize the blogger for questionable audio quality, given the fact that a telephone mouthpiece was used as the recording element to make the best use of The Chief’s valuable time.
2. I will not beg The Chief to read copy for my upcoming Machinima project.
3. I will give The Chief’s radio show a listen the next time I have the chance.
Posted below are the results of our chat in 3 parts…
Introductions and reminiscences about how the gig with Bungie began.

SOUND OFF, Marines! This is your chance to give a shout-out to The Chief.
