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!!!

I love it!

I love this podcast. Its very good.

But may you do me a little favour? Im german - so im not a native speaker. I can understand you (most times) pretty well. But sometimed you are a little to fast speaking.

You are very sympathic. Dont change your kind to speak. But maybe you can speak a liiiiiiitle slower sometimes. 10% slower ;) and i could easily understand every single word. Thank you in advance
