Good Clean(ish) Retro Fun.

Great podcast. Good balance of humour, fact and opinion. My personal favourites have been the Shmup podcasts, the NeoGeo podcast and the Sega Saturn podcast.
Keep up the good work.

Edit :-
The Podcast may be coming to an end but I would urge any retro gaming fan to listen from the start. Excellent podcast - will be missed.

Latest :-

Podcast is now quarterly. The episodes are usually a good 3hours long. Still great listening.
