Aphrodite Interview ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I grew up in Chattanooga,TN and believe it or not, Aphrodite was a regional favorite (1994-99). We all saw him in ATL w/ Mickey Finn eventually, and that might have been the highlight of our life’s up to that point. Thank you so much for this and all the content in general.

The Retro Hour Podcast is a must for the retro game community

The retro hour is hosted by 3 great guys who love talking about retro video games. Dan Wood, Ravi Abbott, Joe Fox host my absolute favorite weekly podcast. I’ve learned so much about gaming that I never did. I loved the interview about Vectrex, Atari history with Nolan Bushnell and Al Alcorn. The guys passion for the interview by their questions during the interview. My wife loves the British accents like Ravi says “it’s FANTASTIC”.
Guys keep up the amazing work and keeping our beloved consoles alive!!!
