Hopefully you’ve already backed GamesMaster: The Oral History on Kickstarter. But if you want to know more about it before parting with your hard-earned cash, you should check out the latest edition of The Retro Hour podcast.
A weekly show that bundles all the latest retro gaming news into each edition, The Retro Hour also includes at least one interview. The latest edition is no different, squeezing in two chats, including one with GamesMaster’s most famous host, Dominik Diamond. He’s there to talk about GamesMaster: The Oral History, a Kickstarter project that fulfilled its target in just a few days in March 2020.
So, if you want to know how Dominik Diamond came to be involved with the book, click play. You’ll learn about that and more, including how pop star Robbie Williams came to write the foreword.
Also on the latest show, there’s a chat about cloning the C64 with Robin Harbron from the “8-Bit Show And Tell” YouTube channel.
New to The Retro Hour? The show takes a look at retro gaming every week, in a show that increasingly stretches the meaning of the word “hour.” That aside, its hosts are excellent and if you haven’t come across it before, now is the time to subscribe in your usual podcast app. You should also bookmark their website, theretrohour.com.
