  • Should be called the Amiga podcast

    As the title says, because that's all they talk about. You could get absolutely smashed if you use this as a drinking game. Some "retro" systems have never been mentioned, the Amstrad cpc range Atari st or bbc micro. Dropping this podcast too much Amiga.

  • Piece of home!

    Lived in the UK till my early 20’s then moved to the USA. I stumbled across this podcast last summer and have been hooked ever since. I love listening to all the chat and stories that give me great memories of my childhood (some I even forgot about). The interviews are always top notch. I travel a lot for work, and The Retro Hour makes the boring flights a lot more enjoyable! Oh, and the Christmas shows are always so much fun. Keep up the great work fella’s!!!
