In this episode we dig up one of our first podcasts from December 2008, which is one of the first Atari dedicated podcasts ever recorded. This low-fi descent into the aughties, complete with bad mics, driving noise, and half-baked ideas is where we began. It’s also a bit prophetic about Atari in 2018. We also have a couple short nonfiction pieces by Steve Fulton, a collection update from Jeff, and more.
Our next episode will be about the game Asteroids in all forms including sequels and inspired games. If you have a story about any Asteroids or related game, please send them to email@example.com or DM them to @Atari_VB_Pod on Twitter.
