    The Intellivisionaries - Special Episode 9 (PRGE 2018 Wrap Up)

    In this special episode, Rick, Cmart and Paul talk about their adventures at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo 2018.  It's chock-full of exciting Intellivision content, both old and new!  The Blue Sky Rangers panel (Intellivision - A Legacy of Firsts!), which was moderated by Paul is also included.  And there are tales of border crossings, Intellivision Day 2018, and something Rick knows nothing about but will soon.  Oh, and our good buddy George is here too, still a bit bitter about not being invited to the expo.  Maybe next year, George?

My Favorite Retro Gaming Podcast!

This is one of my favorite podcasts! It’s got amazing sound quality and the music is out of this world. And the level of detail they dig into their topics is unmatched. For someone who grew up with the Intellivision this show is impossible to beat. My only wish is they would put out more episode!

Interesting and A Great Trip Down Memory Lane

I stumbled upon this podcast one Christmas during a bit of a nostalgia trip that seems to happen around the holidays. I wondered if there was an Intellivision podcast and low and behold this very podcast had only started up a few months earlier. All three guys are fun to listen to. It’s like hanging out with some old friends. They really do a great job, not just talking about the system but going as far as to find and interview old programmers or Mattel employees. It’s really great. If you spent any time in your youth playing the Intellivision and have fond memories of it you’ll definitely get a kick out of this podcast.

Impressive, Most Impressive!

I truly enjoy each and every episode that I have listened to so far. Keep it up! Thanks for your hard work and dedication. This makes my work day go so much better!
