Happy Holidays!!! Or as we like to say, “Good Times!”

In this our Holiday Minisode. With all of us working and being with family this holiday season, we wanted to reach out and give the fans something before we finish our Sportsapaloza episodes. So, we decided to give an update on what is going on with us and what is going on within the 5200 Community. Also, we let MetalJesusRocks what we think of his latest YouTube episode.

Action! Adventure! Justice! REVENGE!!!

All here. On The Atari 5200 Podcast!

Hello to our Atari 5200 enthusiasts and friends!

Today on the Atari 5200 Podcast: Bob, David, and Glen finally get together in the clubhouse to get this episode done. And because the locks on the clubhouse door are a bit sketchy, Steve Averitt wanders back in with his latest contributions to the hobby.

And because we needed to give these games the due that they deserve we have our very special guest, Detroit Sports Radio personally, Peter Spivak, on the show!!! Peter fills in the love where we fall short.

Fun! Drama! Sports! All in this very special episode of The Atari 5200 Podcast!

Hello, Everyone!

Episode 5 unexpectedly turned out to be one of our biggest episodes yet. So to make it easier on everyone, we decided to split up the episode into two parts. You can think of this as Episode 5A, Feedback and our Contest Winner announcement! 

Thanks for listening and the Sportsapalooza with our amazing special guest host is coming soon! Enjoy!

In this episode of the Atari 5200 Podcast...

The crew covers the game that changed the computer and gaming world, STAR RAIDERS!

David's meticulous notes pay off by giving more detail than you ever needed to know about a single game. Glen keeps the show on track. And Bob waxes poetically about how he wasted his teenage years and how he got lucky only by picking a career that uses video game skills. And since it's always good to get a second set of prints at a crime scene, we drag the ever-amazing Bill Kendrick of Atari Party fame and other retro endeavors into being a guest host to talk about this amazing game.

Memories, Allergies, Technical Difficulties, and more! On this episode of The Atari 5200 Podcast!!!

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!
