Task: Listen to the Atari 2600 Game by Game Podcast
Needed: Web browser
Time: 1-2 hours
If you are like me you can’t get enough Atari. Podcasts are one way to satisfy the Atari itch. I have previously posted about the Antic, Floppy Days, Into the Vertical Blank, Inverse ATASCII, and Retro Computing Roundtable podcasts. Another is the Atari 2600 Game by Game podcast hosted by Ferg which recently passed 200 episodes and has been going strong since 2013! Many of the episodes take an in depth look at an Atari 2600 game while others include interviews or special episodes (e.g. Christmas). The original tagline says “The 2600 Game By Game Podcast will delve into the history, gameplay, and personal stories of every game made for the Atari 2600.” If you love 2600 games then this is worth a listen. If you have a favorite 2600 game it is very likely to have been covered on the podcast.

Ferg does an amazing job and has consistently delivered awesome content month in and month out since 2013. Keep up the great work!
I love the tagline from their twitter feed: “A podcast overview of perhaps every game made for the Atari 2600. In excruciating detail. That will never, ever end.”
