I was delighted to find that John and Craig both bring a great deal of experience and genuine love for all things Apple II and the developers of the games we all grew up with. Not only does John know just about everything there is to know, Craig keeps him focused by asking the questions that come naturally to the listener. I'd love if if they could pull this off every month or two as long as it makes sense. John certainly has a huge amount of material to draw from.
Thanks for sharing guys!
Excellent first show. Interesting early Apple material. I’m currently reading Masters of Doom, so it was fun to hear John Romero tell some of his stories. I’m looking forward to more of these.
