Episode 24: Twice The Bits of Atari!

In this episode, we don’t do our traditional ‘Deep Dive’ game review, but Rick does a Homebrew Highlight review of Piggy Bank. We have an interview with Jeremy Jarnigan (aka Indieseoul), the creator of Stalking The Retro, The Greatest American Hero Podcast (with Rick), and now Vectrex Radio (with William Culver). Show correspondent Don Switzer (aka Tarzilla) covers the recent Arcade Expo 2.0 Blue Sky Rangers panel discussion. And there’s Feedback, News and George (who seems to be a bit upset with the Atari 5200 Super Podcast for some reason).
