Consoling Myself – Episode 1 – The Atari 400

The first episode is now available on Apple Podcasts! Woo-hoo. You can search for it on there and subscribe, or you can listen via the link below.

In fairness to the truth, the Atari 400 was my brothers, I think. But seeing as we lived together at the time and I was allowed to play on it AND it is the earliest gaming memory I have, I’m including it.

I have gone and purchased all the consoles I’ve ever owned in my life and the Atari 400 was a hard one to find at a reasonable price. I ended up buying an Atari 400 and an Atari 800XL which were bundled together as ‘untested’. Luckily for me the Atari 400 worked. It did need a bit of a clean-up though!

A bit of elbow grease and the Atari 400 was looking loads better.

Consoling Myself Podcast

I’m trying to branch out a little and have decided to create a podcast. Its called ‘Consoling Myself’ and you can find it on Apple Podcasts or on Acast.

Its about all the video games consoles I had growing up.

Good podcasting ‘pod-iquette’ (is that even a thing?) suggests you should launch a trailer before you go live with your first episode so this is the trailer.
