The home of Retronauts, the greatest classic gaming podcast of all time! Or at least the oldest. New episodes every Monday (with bonus episodes every other Friday). Hosts Bob Mackey and Jeremy Parish explore the history of video games through casual conversations, developer interviews, and deep-dives into both influential games and esoteric topics alike.

After a month, the Retronauts Micro 8-Bit Superhero Sampler continues with a discussion of two NES games that aren't quite as abominable as the ones featured in our last installment: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Batman. On this extra-extra-long episode, join Bob Mackey, Chris Antista, Henry Gilbert, and special guest Chris Baker as the crew extolls the virtues of underwater bomb disposal, and explains why Batman's purple-hued makeover makes sense (which surprisingly has nothing to do with Prince).
