The new favourite part of my morning

I found this podcast when I heard the host, Kevin Larrabe, on another terrific podcast, Player One. I've downloaded a bunch of episodes like the summer of Dreamcast series and have absolutely loved every episode. Kevin is a great host who does a tremendous amount of research before each episode and brings on great guests as well. If I had the money, I would support financially.

Best retro games podcast out there

Excellent commentary and chatter. I couldn't recommend it more

This show is a delight to listen to!

Kevin, Josh, and guest project their joy and enthusiasm for old games and it is great. I listen to the episodes again and again, especially so when I pick up a topical game on psn or the virtual console. I love the personal stories of the crew in their youth when life revolved around games.
