Welcome to DreamPod - a podcast produced by The Dreamcast Junkyard focusing on all aspects of Sega Dreamcast culture, collecting and the community. Join your hosts as they discuss varied topics surrounding Sega's final console, and inevitably get side-tracked by other gaming news.
The Dreamcast Junkyard DreamPod - Episode 107: Top 200 Dreamcast Games 2022 - 200 to 101
In the first of a two-parter, your hosts James, Mike and Tom run through the results of the 2022 Dreamcast Junkyard 'Top 200' games poll results. We asked you to give us your favourite Dreamcast games and you did in droves...now the counting has been completed and so we discuss the games that make up spots 200 to 101; but also discuss the games that didn't make the cut.
The full results will be published on our updated 'Top 200' section on the main blog after part two is released, but while you wait for that feel free to check out Bad Game Hall of Fame's excellent article on Spirit of Speed 1937, which we discuss in the podcast.
Oh, and the 2016 edition of the Top 200 is here (for now!).

The Dreamcast Junkyard DreamPod - Episode 103: An interview with Jörg Tittel
In this episode, Andrew, Brian and Mike chat with writer, producer and director Jörg Tittel, who previously wrote for the US Official Dreamcast Magazine. We discuss Jörg's time at the magazine, his love for the Dreamcast, and his experience working on his own game (The Last Worker). He also shares some fascinating stories, detailing his friendships with Dreamcast developer royalty, including Frédérick Raynal (Toy Commander, Toy Racer) and probably most notably, the late Shinya Nishigaki (Blue Stinger, Illbleed) - which led to Jörg being included as a character in Illbleed!
*Episode was recorded on the 20th February.

Enjoying bingeing these podcasts from the start as I’m currently playing through some Dreamcast games
Such such a great podcast
If you’ve ever Dreamcast if you’ve even considered the idea this is the show for you.
Genuinely great podcast
It would be easy to point to my bias seeing as I’m a dreamcast fanatic, but this is genuinely a great podcast that never drags or feels awkward. Perfect for Dreamcast fans and highly recommended for gaming fans.
