Missing Retrobits, so I’m recycling the podcast

I really enjoy Retrobits as well as hearing about Earl’s adventures and tech news.
Earl has a way to make each episode interesting and fun. As a result of listening to the Retrobits podcast, I’ve bought and built 6 small retro-computer kits in the same year. I do enjoy building kits, and look forward to hearing about the latest on Retrobits.

It’s sad that Retrobits hasn’t released any new episodes for quite a while. so I’ve started listening to them over, all the way back at the first episode.. I’m sure I will hear something I missed the first time through.

Please come back Earl, we miss your podcast!!

Very good show!

Perfect balance of geek and interest with no droning. Genuinely excited about the subject matter!

Retrocomputing with class

Love this podcast & cheers to Earl Evans. Only wish this were an active podcast. Earl leans a bit Commodore in his approach, which is a good thing. I'm a big CBM fan myself.
