The Retrobits Podcast

Oct 2, 2006


You are standing in a thick forest.  There is a podcast playing.

Welcome to Show 060!  This week's Topic: Zork - The Great Underground Empire!

Topics and links discussed in the podcast...

Wikipedia link list - Zork, Infocom, and Interactive Fiction.  Check it out!
The American Radio Relay League - find out about hamfests (where you might find some cool retro computers), and the ham radio hobby in general...
An Apple I, for only $666.66?  Not any more.  But have a look at the vintage ad, it's great!
"Shall we play a game?"  No scarier words were ever spoken by a sentient computer system - and you could hook up to it with an IMSAI.  Check out the IMSAI page dedicated to the movie Wargames (in which an IMSAI system is used quite prominently...)
Be sure to download and enjoy the debut edition of the Classic Computing Podcast by David Greelish!
And while you are podcast surfing, do not miss the September edition of 1 MHz, the Apple II Podcast - Carrington Vanston covers Ballyhoo, an Infocom game.  (And yes, it inspired me for this week's show...and to start playing Zork I once again!  Thanks Carrington!)
