Memory Jogger Podcast Episode 7: School Stories

Episode 7 of Memory Jogger is an extensive trip back to our school days. We take a mental tour of the school, telling stories from every classroom, the cafeteria, and outdoors. Even though our experience was from a private school perspective, we hope you’ll enjoy and even relate to some of the stories we remember over a period of 8 years. We begin with some listener feedback and also a few icebreaker headlines. We invite your jogged memories and comments at the show notes on Rediscoverthe80s.com or tweet to @RD80s.

202: The All-Ball Show

Balls! Select Game returns to cover several Odyssey2 sports games: Bowling!/Basketball!, Pocket Billiards!, Electronic Table Soccer!…and a doomed attempt to play Football! And there may even be something about a trackball! Balls. (44:53)

Apologies for two things in this edition of Select Game: first off, the unplanned, rambling on-the-fly substitution of a game in mid-show, and the fact that the games themselves can barely be heard. The recording for this episode has some issues…and it took some balls to go ahead and release it on schedule.

RCR Episode 148

Panelists: Paul Hagstrom (hosting), Earl Evans, and Carrington Vanston)

Host’s Topic: Venturing down the retro upgrade path

How far should we go down the upgrade path toward modernity? If you have a, say, 68030 Mac, would you want to put a third-party 68040 accelerator in it? You would have in 1993. But what is the point today?

Episode 2 – Combat (2017 Remaster)

My first game episode was episode 2 about Combat. It came out March 3, 2013. I discovered later that I screwed up the sound (I had Audacity experience before doing the podcast, but not with a microphone). Since it’s the 4th anniversary of that show (or it was, THANKS AUDACITY), I decided to clean it up the best I could and re-release it as a treat. If you think tortorous first podcasts are a treat. Anyway, thank you for four wonderful years (with many to come) and for my Facebook page reaching 1000 likes. I’m glad you all are here, and I thank you for listening.
