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.

By this point, it shouldn't be a big surprise that we Retronauts are big fans of Japanese games. Each of us developed our love for the medium in a decade when Japan dominated the gaming landscape, after all--even if it took us a while to realize our favorite games came from outside the US of A. On this episode of Retronauts, join Bob Mackey, Jeremy Parish, and guest Henry Gilbert as the crew traces their love of Japanese games, and tries to figure out what makes interactive entertainment from The Land of the Rising Sun so unique.
