My Classic Gaming podcast segments from 2010 !


Recommended Posts


Hey gang. Here is something I wanted to share with you all. Been talking with Justin about it and he thought it would be cool as well so I been working hard since to set everything up just right with links and info before making this post. Most that know me would not be aware that I was actually part of a retro gaming / computing podcast. YEP, in 2010 I contributed segments to the Armchair Arcade podcast on the older / original Armchair Arcade website. This site was founded by Bill Loguidace, later contributors included Bill's lovely wife Christina T. Loguidice, other good people such as Matt Barton, Mark Vergeer, Chris Kennedy, Chip Hageman, would become editors and contributors. Bill and Matt in fact would come to collaborate on Gaming articles and even published Gaming books. For the most part, the Armchair Arcade podcast was even a predecessor to what would become Matt Bartons "Matt Chat" which would eventually evolve into his MATT CHAT series of Youtube Vlogs that MAtt still does today and is really quite awesome with interviews and guests who were part of console and computer gaming history. I contributed segments to 5 episodes (Episodes 3-7) and recently found that the original site as well as the hosted podcasts still remained. I had a good time with the podcast and those segments were fun and much like my Youtube "MaximumRD Channel" videos pretty much just me picking a subject and just sharing and reliving my history and experiences. 


Below is Info on each segment I did, a description and link to the original Armchair Arcade post and after a quick run through I even included the start times of my segment for your convenience. Lastly should the original site links ever expire at the bottom you will find DropBox and FileDropper links for other downloading options. For FREE Filehosting sites though I always recommend popup/adblockers where possible but I attempted to include some help an guidance for downloading safely regardless, please choose whatever is most convenient / comfortable for you.  :)
