Show Notes

Into The Vertical Blank: Generation Atari Season 1, Episode 3:  Atari Nerd

In this episode we dig up one of our first podcasts from December 2008, which is one of the first Atari dedicated podcasts ever recorded.  This low-fi descent into the aughties, complete with bad mics, driving noise, and half-baked ideas is where we began. It’s also a bit prophetic about Atari in 2018.   We also have a couple short nonfiction pieces by Steve Fulton,  a collection update from Jeff, and more.

Our next episode will be about the game Asteroids in all forms including sequels and inspired games.  If you have a story about any Asteroids or related game, please send them to [email protected] or DM them to @Atari_VB_Pod on Twitter.

S2: E3. We Always Wanted To Work for Atari

Steve and Jeff provide two new stories about wanting to work for, with, or somehow adjacent to classic Atari. The pair also answer feedback, to explain recent Irata, and give some responses to their favorite podcasts.  Tony Longworth’s incredibly melodic industrial grunge track “Into the Vertical Blank” again accompanies this episode, along with original music and audio  productions from the Fulton Brothers.   Tony Longworth’s Music: https://store.cdbaby.com/Artist/TonyLongworth The Atari 2600 Game by Game Podcast: http://2600gamebygamepodcast.libsyn.com/ The Atari Bytes Podcast: https://ataribytes.libsyn.com/ The XL/XE Podcast: https://player.fm/series/xlxe The Pie Factory Podcast: http://www.fab4it.com/piefactory/#/ The Christmas Bytes Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1678105444/christmas-bytes ...
