Task: Listen to the Inverse ATASCII Podcast
Needed: Web browser or podcast app
Time: 15-60 minutes
One of my favorite things to do while driving is to listen to retrocomputing podcasts. I have previously posted about the ANTIC Atari podcast and the Retro Computing Roundtable that I regularly listen to. I highly recommend both. There are several other Atari-related podcasts that I recommend including the Inverse ATASCII podcast that, according to their website, “discusses productivity software, hardware that supports productivity, and modern life with vintage Atari computers”. What I love about this podcast is that it focuses on productivity software and not games as many of the other podcasts do. Currently, they have at least 50 episodes that have been posted from 2014 to 2018. They have covered software such as VisiCalc, MemoPad, Data Perfect, Typo Attack, Capitals, Statistics, Telelink, and many others. These are fun to listen to and most are between 15 and 60 minutes in length.
I haven’t worked my way through all of the episodes yet. This is primarily because many of them are shorter than my commute. I prefer podcasts that run at least 40 minutes. I will get to them all some day!
