Readable Retro R-websites


Recommended Posts

Went for an alliterative title, failed.

 

Anyone got any recommendations for decent, text heavy retro gaming and technology websites?

 

I tend to read the news while eating my lunch in work, but the state of the world is causing me a good bit of stress. I've taken to reading Wikipedia articles about old micros and stuff, but I'm wondering if there are text equivalents of Kim Justice, RMC, Zapped to the Past, The Retro Hour and so on?

 

Possibly should have stuck this in ATF...?

No Retro Asylum mentioned in that list? 
 

Anyway, I’d recommend https://www.timeextension.com/ which is fairly new.

Nah, the main fella on that is dead annoying.

I used to listen to every episode when I'd listen to podcasts basically all day every day, but I hardly listen to any since changing jobs about 6 months ago.

Podcast listening dropped off a lot when lockdown and working from home happened - no commute or annoying colleagues saw to that. My new job only has a 10-20 minute commute, which Zapped to the Past works really well for.

 

I did always enjoy RA, though.
