Any good podcasts out there?
« on: 19:06, 20 March 19 »
It's been quite some time since I last listened to a good retro-related podcast. You know, one with good content, where producers don't sound like they're drunk or speaking from the bottom of a well, where audio is not clipped at 16KHz, stuff like that... The last one I listened to was a (I think) quite popular Amiga one, where -it turns out- the guy did a review as detailed as was tedious of Barbarian, describing the graphics on the screen or the sound (but without playing even a second of game music! On an audio medium!!) etc etc, which bored me to death.


So, anyhow, any suggestions?

Podcasts are still a thing?

The Retro Hour is one I listen to regularly, not sure if it's sort of thing you're looking for but I usually enjoy it, covers a wide range of stuff on there and has interesting guests and interviews. Seems to be one of the bigger, well established podcasts so it's professionally done as well, and some of the guests they've had on have been awesome.

There's a couple of others I listen to occasionally, mostly Amiga specific but I'd also be interested to see if there's others out there, especially if they had a fair bit of CPC related stuff, which seems less easy to find.

Bryce.


I hear them all the time at work in plague proportions, it's annoying for me because I can hear it, without hearing what's being said.  :(



So, anyhow, any suggestions?


Unsure if it's worth mentioning ANTIC The Atari 8-bit Podcast it has that drainage pipe sound and 3 guys talk about their Atari activity, I was listening to Episode 58 because the BASIC 10 Liners Compo came up, though after listening to over 30 minutes of other stuff, they finally get to it around 32:50 mark. All the information they go through has been from information posted on their forum along with information about Kevin's entries.

* I use Firmware in my Assembly code :P
* Have interpreted some BASIC 1.1 programs for BASIC 1.0. :)

@Loki : thanks for that, I knew about it but had overlooked it. Listened to an episode yesterday and it was quite nice :) Thanks!


@AMSDOS : I prefer shows not so specific, unless it's on the CPC :D

Oh by the way, to answer to @Bryce  since I was reading something about it for work: there are now more than 500.000 live podcasts, with more than 2K added every week :D


I had no idea there are so many, to tell you the truth, the number surprised me.

That's a huge volume of stuff to store in your head, I'm concerned that it maybe deleting other things that need to be remembered, despite not being qualified to make the call.

Supposedly, one of the sleep stages (REM?) makes room for new memories, so defrag and cleanup are on autopilot, don't worry :)

There was a time when I had to commute a lot and so I listened to many podcasts. I'll listen some here:
RCR - Retro Computing Roundtable: http://rcrpodcast.com
Retrobits Podcast (inactive?) -
https://retrobits.libsyn.com
Stay Forever [German] - https://www.stayforever.de/
Scene World - https://sceneworld.org/
Some others have been mentioned above already.
Still others I must check in my backup from those times if I can find it.
There was a rather complete list of Retro Podcasts I've seen once but I can't find it anymore. Guess it was on twitter or so.

PS.: Sorry for the strange "plug-in" within the text. I don't know what the editor of this forum is doing in the background.

After hours of search I think I found at least one Tweet with lots of retro podcasts that I mentioned above.

I enjoy listening to these guys. Good production quality.


And there's even a 3 part special about Amstrad vs C64 vs Spectrum games... A good laugh.

Ah yes, of course, the RA. Not all episodes are of interest, but this sounds pretty interesting :)

Yea, you'll have to use the search feature, on their website, to find all 3 episodes, as they're spread out over a couple of years. The final episode brings the BBC Micro into the mix.

That's from 2017, but content can't get much older, can it? :D :D


Thanks, that's a great resource!
