Great podcast

Great podcast, definitely worth checking out if you're into your retro. It's clear the presenters have a lot of love for all things 8-bit, 16-bit and beyond! Really well researched and engaging presenters.

Best retro gaming podcast

Tuned into my first RGDS podcast and picked a great one, episode 300 and loved it. The guys are so knowledgeable and really know their games well and have a wide variety of specialities. Their passion really shows through and Kingy telling stories from his childhood really makes it a very stand out, relatable and enjoyable podcast. Well done guys will be listening to many more.
