    Absolutely fantastic episode. I’ve been a graphic designer (in print) for over 15 years and I’m trying to transition into C and Obj. C programming, so listening to Mike Mika detail the intricacies of these ports is fascinating. Thank you!

    This podcast is almost approaching the brilliance of “A Life Well Wasted” with these recent episodes.

    Yes, so good! Been listening since the early episodes, and your podcast is a haven from the usual videogame circus and much appreciated for that. The added depth of discussion with Mike Mika re: early console development is just inspirational.

  3. Nice intro music! It was my ringtone for quite some time.
