Spirit Tracks: Chatting Retro with Bob from RetroRGB

(7 comments)

Remember how I had a podcast?
 
All joking aside, I'm really, really proud of this one. Please join me in extending a very warm welcome to the wonderful Bob from RetroRGB.
 
Bob has done tireless work gathering information on how to preserve every aspect of classic video games: Not just the systems and the games themselves, but the whole experience of retro gaming. From the best way to hook up your old consoles to a modern flatscreen digital HD TV to the best way to track down and safeguard a CRT to build your own personal arcade, Bob's website RetroRGB is a wellspring of everything you'd ever want to know about the technical side of video game history and preservation. Over the course of an hour and a half, Bob and I share our thoughts on the retro lifestyle, some of our favourite video game memories and talk about what keeps us coming back to the old classics and retro aesthetics year after year.
 
This podcast is a real collaboration between RetroRGB, Eruditorum Press and the Forest of Illusions YouTube Channel. For the first time, I'm doing a proper crosspost: My YouTube viewers will get a video podcast (and, for the first time, get to see me in person), while fans of EP's podcast network get an audio-only version hosted, as always on the Pex Lives Libsyn. But more to the point, Bob was kind enough to not just guest on my show, but actually do all the technical work recording, mixing and uploading it too. I could not have gotten this out in time today were it not for him, so I wanted to give him an impassioned public thanks here as well.
 
Some liner notes:

 

This show was a blast to make, and I hope you all enjoy it!

You know, I thought you'd have long hair, but I didn't see the small beard (is that a beard, or is it just the part of your face not covered by the light of the window [I can clearly see the mustache though]).

A lot of the video went over my head (mostly due to my lack of knowledge within the field of electronics), but it was still a fascinating watch.

...I don't have a beard.

I'm going to keep my hopes up and assume that was just the way the lighting played with the camera.

Yeah, I figured that might have been it. Sorry for making the wrong assumption.

I don't have a mustache either.

I mean I know my lighting and camera are bad, but...

Yeah, looking at it now I don't know what I was thinking. Still, fantastic interview.
