The Atari Lynx Handycast is only a few episodes in, but I can tell it’s already turning into something special. If you’re a retro gamer who had a Lynx back in the day or is new to the handheld (like myself), the podcast has something for both audiences. The way Mark is including the community into the podcast is a great way to keep the system alive!
Really enjoying this podcast
The lynx is a system I never owned or played. I am really enjoying learning about it from Mark!
