We are twin brothers who grew up "Atari" or as we call it, in The Vertical Blank. The Vertical Blank is space between the lines. It's the where work occurs you never see on screen. It's the nuances that makes nostalgia real. It's the transcendental location that holds our best memories, biggest joys, greatest fears, and our most terrible losses. In this podcast we discuss Atari computers and systems, new and old, review new games we collect, talk about all the systems, and the significance they had in our lives and the lives of others, and even talk about them in an historical context wit the backdrop the times they were released, and how they are being used now. We do all this in an effort to finally understand the answer to this existential question: what does it mean to have grown up "Atari" in the generation of the Vertical blank.

Trip down memory lane!!

I am proud to say I grew up with these guys, so this may seem biased. However, I am not writing this because they are my friends but instead because these stories about Atari and their family (especially their dad) are amazing! I was lucky enough to get to know the whole family and these stories bring fond memories of my childhood. Their dad was so fun and I remember spending many hours in Castle Park with Jeff, Steve and him. He was so happy observing his sons having fun. Thank you guys for taking so much time to document what I would consider some of the best times of my life. I haven’t heard every episode yet, but I am hoping there are some serious time dedicated to some of the good times outside of video games, for example, “kick the can”, the awesome gun show, and the epic over the line games with golf balls!! :-) Keep up the good work you two!!’

GenX Bliss!!

I love this Podcast! I'm a 46 year old GenXer, and every well produced episode floods me with the nostalgia endorphins of my childhood! While this podcast focuses primarily on the video game influences of GenX, I would encourage any GenXer to check out this podcast, even if you have no interest in video games. In particular, I would recommend that you start with the "Clawhammer" episode, a beautifully told story about the two brother's relationship with their father, back in 1977. Keep up the good work, guys. Looking forward to the next episode!

A blast! Back from the past.

The camaraderie between these two brothers is unmistakable. The show’s production is slick, with plenty of good music, nostalgia hits, ambience, and good vibes. Have you played Atari podcasts po day?
