Doing it old school

Retronauts was the first podcast I ever listened to and continues to be one of the favorites in my podcast rotation. Every week a group of retro-gaming enthusiasts gets together to discuss an old game series, company, or relevant topic. The nature of the podcast lends itself well to repeat listenings or delving into the archives since the topics are already dated to begin with! Retronauts was originally hosted by Jeremy Parish, who is very knowledgeable and a but new host Bob Mackey has done an excellent job of taking over and revitalizing the show. The recent series on video game movies was particularly great. If you're an old-school video game fan and want to learn some history about your favorite games (or hear some bad puns), I highly recommend checking out Retronauts.

One of the best video game podcasts

This is easily one of the best video game podcasts to date. I have been an avid listener since around November 2011. Since then I have listened to all of the Retronauts episodes there are. Even the old episodes are fantastic. If you want relive your nostalgia for old games or hear of some old games you never heard of Retronauts is the podcast for you. Both passed and presents hosts are really knowledgeable about retro games. Though Jeremy does like to use the term “nebulous” a lot. Bob is a nice charismatic guy that makes me tune in to Retronauts whenever it is available. His movie month idea has been the best yet. If you love retro video games or just want to find out more about them check out Retronauts, I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Fandango

Simply Amazing

The hosts, editors from 1Up and IGN, are incredibly knowledgable about not just the big blockbusters of today and yesterday, but also lesser known titles from gamings past. The Movie Month sessions are great and definetly worth downloading even years from original publishing. In fact, every episode is worth grabbing because this podcast is relevant any month, year, etc.

The topics move at a great pace and Bob, the host, makes sure everyone stays on point. Whether you were gaming in '86 or '06 this is a great retrospective on all things gaming culture.
