Podcast Description

The Retro Asylum is the UK’s longest-running fortnightly podcast show that looks at the retro gaming culture from a UK perspective.

Its output is personality-led and combines conversation, music and stories from back in the day with ‘deep dive’ discussion about the computer systems that were popular at the time from the ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC and Amiga through to the Sega Mega Drive and Super Nintendo.

In more recent times the show has taken on a role as curators of gaming development tales through its interviews with influential game makers such as John Romero, The Oliver Twins, Dino Dini and Jon Hare. This archiving of stories and in-depth discussion around how video games have evolved has built an ever-growing permanent archive which will be available to future generations of gamers and game developers.
