All about 80’s and 90’s micro computers, the programmers and the first gaming consoles.

My favorite podcast

What makes this podcast stand out from the others is the sheer quality and tightness of the show - First rate interviews every week. Relevant news and show notes. Great sound quality (a rare occurrence in this genre of podcasts).
But most of all it’s the unlimited and very infectious enthusiasm of Dan and Ravi that I cannot wait for every Friday.

My favourite podcast

It's simple. The retro hour just is an amazing show. First there is news that cover what's going on in the world of retro gaming. Then they have an in depth interview with someone who one way or the other is connected to the gaming / multimedia scene. They had some amazing persons with some great story's about game making, game design, sound design. Really a good show!
