Good UK retro gaming podcast
A genuine UK-based retro game podcast from the people behind Retro Collect. A real nostalgic trip for kids of the 80s and 90s, and informative for the collectors.
I was really disappointed by this podcast. Retro Collect is a great site so I was hoping for a great podcast but what we have here is 3 dull presenters who all sound the same. Sorry guys but there's much better podcasts out there these days.
