Hello Again, Intrepid Listeners!

As promised, our Episode 3.5 to make up for lost time. Or the time we ran out of on the first run. In this episode, we have Capt. Bob giving his mea culpa to the listeners and doing what he should have in the first place, describing the golden age classic, Missile Command. David covers the very worthy homebrew, Pac-Man Arcade. And David, Bob, and Glen get left in the eBay bidding dust by three very determined bidders for a new in the box, never touched, Atari 5200 Supersystem. 

All this, and a bit more, on The Atari 5200 Podacst!

On this episode, we introduce our third host and hardware guru, Glen Planamento. A previous guest and friend of the show, Steve Averitt swings by to talk about trak-ball controllers. We cover the seminal games, Missile Command and Pac-Man. And we debunk the haters that give the 5200 a bad rap. All this and more from your hosts Capt. Bob, David, and Glen.

Hello to all of our listeners! Today, we give to you Episode 2. On this episode we will be talking about Atari's Countermeasure and CBS Electronics Wizard of Wor. We also fill all of you in on how busy we've been and why it has taken so long to get this episode out and we thank all of you for your patience. Nonetheless, thanks for hanging in there with us. Also, we have a guest host, Glen Planamento, of Glen's Retro Show on YouTube. We did have some audio difficulties that we're working through so hopefully those will be ironed out on the next episode.

Enjoy, Everyone!

Hello, Everyone!

Thank you for hanging in there with me. And for your troubles, here is (finally) our first episode! I want to thank Wiile and Ar-Kay for the experience and the trust to do this podcast justice and David Protestari for being my co-host and teaching the finer points on how to be a host.

It's going to be a crazy ride and hopefully you the fans will come with David and I as we go down the road. We hope you will be entertained and learn something along the way. And with that... IT BEGINS!
