S1:E0: Newbie (Jeff's Original Test Episode) (Remaster)

8bitrocket’s Into The Vertical Blank, Growing Up Atari  Ep: 0 This is the test episode of the Into The Vertical Blank, Growing Up Atari. In it, 8bit Jeff (Jeff Fulton from 8bitrocket.com) tries out and reviews 5 Atari XL/XE Cartridges (probably won’t work on a 400 or 800) that he recently purchased from Video 61. This is a very extended version of what was originally going to be a short user submitted addition to the Antic Atari 8bit Podcast. Extra Show notes for 8bitrocket.com’s New Podcast section: (use above and this) We have decided to expand the focus to all Atari computers and systems, new and old, review new games we collect, talk about all the systems, and the significance they had in our lives and the lives of others, and even talk about them in an historical context wit the backdrop the times they were released, and how they are being used now. In the podcast #1 and beyond, Steve Fulton (8bitsteve, twin brother to Jeff, also from 8bitrocket.com) will join and start experiencing new games and old with Jeff as they discuss all things Atari.

S1:E10: Christmas In The Vertical Blank plus The Christmas Train (remaster)

In this season 1 finale, the Fulton brothers discuss the early years of Atari and Christmas, culminating in a Christmas story that ties a bow on a few of the previous stories and themes from this season. There are also some surprises, weird occurances, and awkwardness. Lots and lots of awkwardness. What were you expecting?  Some Images To Illustrate The Podcast Probably the first ad we ever saw in Electronic Games magazine from November 1981 The Amazing "Train Tables" in the Sears Catalog The only picture I have of the N-Scale Xmas-tree stand.  This is from long after it fell into disrepair, but I think you can still still what it might have looked like in it's glory days The "HO Scale Dementia Table" when "everything lived" Dad working on his table the took up most of his room.     ...

S2:E17: Bonus - Book Review Of Galaga From Boss Fight Books And More!

This episode is a quick apology for mixing an episode of The Alarm podcast into the Into The Vertical Blank Feed.   This episode contains content that never made it into season 2 including book reviews for Galaga from Boss Fight Books and American Nerd, The Story Of My People, as well as a remote collecting excusrion and a lost intro for S2:E15.   Again, sorry about the mix-up.  ...
