New format?

Just heard the latest podcast and details on new format that will be more technical. I think that’s great! While it’s nice to hear about how to play or win at a game, it’s even better to hear how the game does what it does in the Atari. Rob, this is a great idea and I look forward to your continued podcast whenever you are up and running again.

A Great Historical Review

I've been reading my way through digital copies of the very first magazine to which I ever subscribed - Electronic Games - so this month-by-month survey of the magazines dedicated to the Atari 8-bit computers provides a fascinating parallel. I also appreciate the occasional dip into a hardcore technical discussion about these machines and their capabilities/limitations.

Great Show!

I don't have a lot of experiences with the Atari 800, but I enjoy hearing about it. Rob does a great job of bringing that era to life for me. If you had an Atari 800 back in the 80s and loved playing the games, check out this great podcast!
