Fun conversations about the old days.
It's great to relive the past. Excellent host and always engaging content.
Easily one of the best retro gaming podcasts out there. Very informative and interesting. I was very young when I did most of my DOS gaming, so my memories are vague at best, but it's still fun to listen to him talk about the hardware and the games even if I personally never played some of them.
