Two New Retro Podcasts

Prior to leaving on my cross-country road trip I loaded up on new podcasts to listen to. Here are two new retro-related podcasts that I added and greatly enjoyed listening to.

On the 2600 Game by Game Podcast, Robert “Ferg” Ferguson is attempting to go through each Atari 2600 game (by catalog part number!). Ferg is a long-time fan and collector of Atari 2600 games, and has some great stories to go along with each one. One cool thing about Ferg’s podcast is that he tells you what next week’s game will be and encourages you to write in and share your stories about the game as well.


Next up is’s Escape Pod, by Earl Green.

Earl’s website has long been a repository of all things both geeky and scientific, but his latest foray into the world of podcasting has a unique twist — each episode is five minutes or less in length. These are great to listen to on the way to work, right before bed, or while taking a sh…ort break. If you enjoy trivia facts about science fiction and science fact, check out Earl’s Escape Pod.
