Hey guys! Today, I wanted to let everyone know about FIVE amazing vintage gaming podcasts, blogs & websites that I ‘read/listen to/watch/leave feedback for’ each month (or thereabouts). I also leave audio feedback on three different vintage gaming podcasts. Of course, my current obsession is anything and everything related to Atari, so my picks will definitely represent that!
These podcasts are:
Atari 2600 Game by Game Podcast by Ferg (Blogspot Blog w/ links… my feedback began with Episode 187, “Bank Heist” in Sept 2020)
Atari Lynx Handycast by Mark Little (website with links… my feedback began with Episode 22, “Paperboy” in Nov 2021)
Atari Jaguar Game by Game Podcast by Shinto (game by game info hub page with links… my first feedback sent for “Rayman,” TBA)
I’m only letting everyone know because these podcasts are three I listen to each month or when new episodes are available. I’m currently ‘catching up’ on the back catalogue of episodes on the Lynx and Jaguar podcasts, still, but I’m caught up on the 2600 podcast. I also listen to the:
“Antic” Atari 8bit podcast (website with links)
…but have not yet left feedback. The Antic podcast has been going for years, and Kay Savetz, Randy Kindig and Brad Arnold are three amazing interviewers and podcasters. Each show and interview is meticulously researched, updated and discussed. Great stuff! (I listen to their podcast typically at the gym with my earbuds! Great workout material! Who knew?!) Check them out anywhere you can!
But these four podcasts are wonderful podcasts if you’re as ‘into’ Atari systems (handheld, computers and video game consoles) as I am! Just wanted to give a shoutout to these four, as well as a wonderful podcast about the Bally Astrocade by my friend Adam, who hosts the following:
Anyway, you get the idea. Adam is one of the foremost collectors here in the Southwest, at least, for the Bally Astrocade and other vintage gaming consoles, such as the Atari 800XL and many others. He goes through Bally Astrocade material and ephemera for collectors, as well is kind of a genius when it comes to Atari hardware and many other vintage consoles. Adam published the “Orphaned Computers & Game Systems” newsletter for many years. Adam and his friend (now my friend, too) Chris also published some articles for these newsletters here. I met Adam through Ferg’s 2600 podcast (as well as our mutual friend Chris) and they are some great people! Quickly becoming very dear gaming friends to me, and I hope you check out Adam’s page links above for all the rare, amazing Bally Astrocade goodness you can handle.
Also, I’m not just letting my readers know about these five podcasts because I may or may not leave personal audio feedback on them, or know them personally as friends, but they are AMAZING podcasts and websites, YouTube pages and such. Peruse at your pleasure and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do each month!
Enjoy! and Happy Thanksgiving (if I forget to say it in time!) Be safe, and I’ll try to post more of others’ websites, blogs and vintage gaming stuff for you to enjoy, as well! These inspired me and there are so many others to uncover, too, I’m sure!
