Retro Game Club is a podcast about retro gaming with a focus on programming, emulation, and projects you can do at home.

Hue’s doll story...
This is a great show for a very niche following: retro games. In the past I’ve searched out several other retro video games podcasts and am always left wanting (most fall into the current rubbish), but Hue has been bringing it for a loooooong time... Also he has the BEST doll story involving a bed and breakfast in deepest darkest Milwaukee (I think, though admittedly it feels like a fever dream at this point). I’m hoping this is so vague it stirs enough weird questions to incite him to retell it on this new show(probably won’t 🤨). Co-host ‘the new’ Rob is cool too!
Classic gaming with a DIY twist
The spiritual successor to The Retro League podcast, host Hugues Johnson and former Retro League listener Rob from Detroit bring the same no frills pragmatism to classic game news. There’s a unique focus on programming and emulation, as well as classic computing. Rob and Hugues bring a unique perspective as professional programmers and have a great laid back, off-the-cuff style that’s great for an easy listen on the train, in your car or just doing random stuff at home. Highly recommended for the chill, yet technically inclined subset of retro gaming fandom.
Great to hear Hugues again!
