Fantastic and the passion always shines through

One of my top goto podcasts on all things retro. Superbly produced and you can feel the passion when everyone talks.

Fantastic and long may they all continue :-)

Excellent representation of the UK / EU retro gaming scene

Have been listening to RA for many years now and the show is simply superb. I’ve never left a review for any podcast before but felt compelled to do so. As a 39 year old (retro) gamer this gives me a exactly what I want from a gaming podcast. Platform coverage is expansive and the genres discussed are wide and diverse. The banter between the boys is also great. A genuine highlight in my weekly podcast feed.

Silent fan

I have been listening to Retro Asylum for a while now, caught up with the entire back catalogue while working though lockdown 1. I’m a wannabe retro games player, who just does not have the space for anything other than my minis and evercade. I sort of leach fun from listening to these great guys having fun.

Keep up the good , no excellent work.
