I don't have a lot of experiences with the Atari 800, but I enjoy hearing about it. Rob does a great job of bringing that era to life for me. If you had an Atari 800 back in the 80s and loved playing the games, check out this great podcast!
As an Atari bit computer lover, I adore this podcast. I love the conceit of moving forward in time one month per episode, and finding out what;’s happening in all of the Atari computer magazines that month. There’s the perfect amount of digression into non-Atari topics, because of course Atari didn’t operate in a bubble. Fun game reviews, too. Yay Atari.
I heard about this podcast on the antic podcast. I have really enjoyed the magazine coverage. This is a great 8 bit Atari podcast and should not be overlooked. Thanks for the hard work and excellence in podcasting! I'm glad you chose podcasting as an outlet instead of toast masters.
