Remember those classic Atari 2600 games? They were sure fun to play, but didn't you ever wonder why they sent a plumber to take out Donkey Kong? What Yar was seeking revenge against? What made those robots go berserk? Me too? ATARI BYTES is more than a game review podcast. It's an exploration of the games to divine what exactly the story within the game is. And if we can't find those answers, we'll make 'em up.

*Murdoc Scream* ATAAAAARRRRRRIIIIIII!!!!!

Love this show! Bill brings a very funny and relaxed brand of humor to the episodes, as well as a great revisit to each game. Highly recommended!

Kid as sidekick

Heard this mentioned on another podcast and, as someone raised on Atari, I thought I’d give it a try.
Started with the Raiders of the Lost Ark episode.
Unsubscribed after twenty minutes of the Raiders of the Lost Ark Episode.
The kid sounds adorable.
But kid as precious sidekick fails every single time.

Ok, I changed from 1 star to 3 because I deeply admire and respect anyone who endeavors to make an Atari podcast.

Hilarious, clean, and tons of soul

-You don't have to know Atari to like the podcast

-For all ages

-Just a pleasant dude telling stories

William brings a ton of heart and humor to the Atari universe with his stories. I am a fan of retro video games, but I'm definitely not an Atari purist. Nonetheless, Ataribytes has become one of my favorite podcasts to listen to.

Atari games somehow captured the imagination of kids with just a few colors, blocky images, and some bleeps and boops. Well the host of this podcast is a true writer who grew up with the Atari. He uses his imagination to make up hilarious stories, and does it without having to use bleeps ;)
