The Retroist on the Nerd Lunch Podcast

I was very happy to finally be able to sit down and talk to the guys at the Nerd Lunch Podcast a few days ago. The results of that talk are now up on their site (and here) as the newest episode of their show, which is titled, Memories of Retro Technology.

Here is the summary of the show from the Nerd Lunch site:

On this week’s episode we turn our attention to some of the technology that was cutting edge during our youths. We’re joined by the best retro expert we could ask for, The Retroist himself. During our conversation we stroll past all manner of tech gravestones including the Kodak Disc camera, Atari 2600, audio cassettes, the VCR, and the Super Bowl Shuffle (huh?). In our Nerd To-Do’s, we learn a little about table-top wargaming and find out which nerd is attempting to assemble the Young Justice version of the Hall of Justice.

and here is the actual episode for your listening pleasure:

If you like, you can directly download the show instead here or get it through itunes (and subscribe). Thanks to CT, Paxton and Jeeg for having me on, I had a very nice time and I hope I will get to hook up again with them in a future episode.

Oh and make sure you enjoy the reworked Nerd Lunch theme by Peachy. He knocks it out of the park.

File Under Horrible’s 1980’s Music Podcast – Top 5 Horrible Songs Of The 1980s

The Retroist Podcast will be back next week, but if you want a 1980s fix in the meantime, why not check out File Under Horrible’s 1980’s Music Podcast “Top 5 Horrible Songs Of The 1980s”. The show is a little more adult oriented than the Retroist Show, so maybe listen to it before sharing with da kids. Here is the show summary from the File Under Horrible website:

Jim and Bill once again board their podcast time machine and set the destination to the 1980?s! The 80?s were a decade of big hair, loud colors, and some extremely horrible music. This is sure to be an extremely polarizing episode as the guys rip apart some of your favorite songs. Do you agree with their choices or are you now questioning their tastes even more than you did before? Ten songs, a lifetime of torture. All on this very special edition of FUHcast!
