If you are searching in a catalog, search for “Retro Computing Roundtable” (“RCR” will likely not find it, even if that’s how we refer to it ourselves).

After episode 262, we switched hosting providers, and for technical reasons we archived episodes 1-262 in a static archive feed here:

So if you want to listen to older episodes, subscribe to the archive feed.

Both feeds should be accessible from the Apple Podcasts catalog, and we will explore whether there are other catalogs we should add ourselves to (but if you have suggestions, let us know via the Contact tab).
