Worth Checking Out

Quite simply I love this podcast! Excellent hosts who have a lot of interesting insights on the world of retro games. They pick a theme and stick with it for a large portion of each episode, reviewing games within that theme, and then choosing how they felt about the games. Essentially it's a retro game review podcast with a lot of great personality, humor, awesome information... Totally worth the time. Professionally done. Thank you. Very much worth downloading & listening to!
