Are you sure it’s independent?
Firstly, I cannot over empathise how professional this podcast sounds, it has major media outlet quality.
The interviews are fascinating, especially when people from opposing companies, or from opposing sides of feuds are interviewed, it’s interesting to get both sides of a story.
I’d even recommend this podcast to non retro gamers who want to understand business.
A suggestion for the retro hour team: once a month review a game - but the retro hour twist, to keep with your interview theme, see if you can present reviews from old magazines.
Quality from day one
Really enjoy the format and content. Great blend of news and guest interviews.
Keep up the good work
Best podcast out there
My favourite podcast. Best podcast for retro game news and amazing interviews bring back memories of my younger days.
