Maximum Power Up Podcast - Amiga Memories
I've always listened to gaming podcasts on commutes to work. I love hearing passionate, like minded people witter away about the games of yesteryear. Frequently the presenters are of a similar age to me, so their happy memories are also mine. I jump at the chance to appear on Podcasts especially when it's a topic I love dearly. This is why I was so delighted to join the Maximum Power Up podcast to talk about RPGs a few months back. Evidently I did a good job as they have since invited me back to talk again about the Amiga. For close to two hours I was gifted the chance to chat to my friend Paul, covering happy memories of the games we user to play on this fantastic range of computers. It's naturally a huge topic but (owing to the fact I speak Very quickly) we got through a lot. From magazines and cover discs to 'D Paint' and 'Amos' programming, there wasn't much we didn't at least mention.
Early feedback has been very encouraging which is obviously flattering. English listeners in particular are thrilled that the machine that allowed for much of their childhood gaming has finally been discussed on the show.
Hopefully it'll be the start of many more appearances on The Maximum Power Up podcast in the future.
