They are super informative, and have a way to really make you feel like you’re just listening to a natural conversation about retro gaming and all things related.

These guys are awesome. Not your typical snobby dudes.

I’ve been listening for quite some time now. If you dislike the snobby then give Alex, Jeff, and John a listen to. They bring a fresh, non cynical take to retro gaming and have a lot of fun doing it. 5 stars.
