This is the annual group “megapodcast” recorded at KansasFest, from July 2017. The event draws quite a few podcasters, so we all sit in a room and talk for an hour.
This year’s podcast involves the obligatory discussion of the KansasFest event itself (which is an annual gathering of Apple II enthusiasts, along with some others, for almost a week of “retrocomputing camp”). It is held at Rockhurst University in Kansas City, Missouri, where everyone lives in a dorm room, socializes in common areas, goes to presentations held in the basement, participates in various events, works on projects of their own or observes projects others are doing.
We discuss the event itself, play a version of “Celebrity” with figures from geek culture or computing history, and generally have a grand time.
This was one microphone in the middle of a room, so the audio quality is what you would expect from one microphone in the middle of a room. Also, this same audio appeared on the Open Apple podcast feed, so if you heard it there already, you are excused from listening to it again (unless you want to).
The participants were (clockwise from Quinn):
- Quinn Dunki (Open Apple)
- Paul Hagstrom (Retrocomputing Roundtable, Drop III Inches)
- John Leake (Retro MacCast)
- Chris Torrence (Assembly Lines)
- Kevin Savetz (ANTIC, Eaten By A Grue)
- Ken Gagne (Retrocomputing Roundtable, PolyGamer)
- Charles Mangin (How II)
- Carrington Vanston (Retrocomputing Roundtable, Eaten By A Grue)
- Michael Mulhern (Retrocomputing Roundtable)

Next Week: Neuromancer!
So. This episode is about Activision’s racing game Enduro, but it is not the only episode about Enduro that I will be doing. I expected a good amount of feedback for this game, and I got an enormous amount instead. Which is absolutely wonderful, I am ecstatic to get so much feedback this far into the podcast. However, it is late and I am tired. Rather than wait to put out the whole show, I am putting out what I have so far, and the rest will go out this weekend. I kept telling Sarah that I was getting a lot of feedback, and she kept telling me to split the show into two parts. Of course I said I didn’t want to do that, because I’m dumb. I had almost everything recorded before yesterday, and it still took forever to edit. So, enjoy this first half and I will see you again this weekend. Thanks for listening! Part 2 can be found here.

Hey kids! Thanks for stopping by. We have a super fun show ahead of us this week. We start off with a remix of a jam we did a few years ago and then we move onto some talk talk about rap tapes and then we head over to the snack shack for a sit down with Iceberg. It’s quite enlightening.
From there we talk about a couple of movies I saw the first one stars the delightful Jenny Slate and the 2nd one is The Dark Tower, it’s a very controversial flick. I’ll tell you all about it.
For the final segment we talk a bit about some Thor toys I saw over at the TRU as well as some new comics coming down the pike from Archie as well as a ton of other great stuff, Gotham, The Ozarks… tons more!

CCCM is happy to be a part of Throwback Network. Check them out for dozens of other great retro podcasts!
Today on GeekFest Rants we take a look at the fictional Eugenics Wars from Star Trek. How these events have given rise to one of sci-fi greatest villains and how it’s rooted in a real life historical period.
Then Carlos is joined by Kyle to talk about all the TV shows we have been catching up on and some which have actually finished. Then we wrap up with Star Wars toys (what else?). Carlos compares the classic Kenner large size figures to the more modern Hasbro ones.
Tom Hunt, Closer to Home BBS Tom Hunt ran an Atari BBS called Closer to Home for 28 years. He also created a variety of utilities for the Atari 8-bit computers, including M.T.O.S. (Multi-Tasking Operating System), and The Armorizer (a file corruption detector). He created several languages including Atari implementations of the Brainfork and Mouse programming languages, and forks of Atari BASIC and Turbo BASIC with various feature additions. He also built a system for porting Inform 5 and Z-Code text adventures to the Atari platform. This interview took place on August 5, 2017. “Just as soon as one caller would get off another one would come on. We had so much going on, before the Internet we had worldwide networking — we had message bases, emails, and file mail going around the world to Christchurch, New Zealand and everything. It was just great!” Tom Hunt Atari memories document
In this episode Greg and George are joined by Will as we discuss a game Will brought to the podcast….Yoshi’s Safari! One of the few Super Scope games for the SNES, this strange but charming game feels out of place coming from Nintendo as you battle King Koopa and company while riding on the back of Yoshi. We discuss how the game plays, if it holds up today, and other how weird it is that Nintendo made this game! Any questions, comments, etc. can be left on our FB page or e-mailed to the email@example.com and as always thanks for your support!
