Episode 137 van de Engelstalige podcast The Retro League is uitgekomen met 2 uur en 4 minuten retro onderwerpen:

We’re spending another week in the year 1989 as we reflect on the TurboGrafx-16 launch. The first entrant in the 16-bit war didn’t survive long in the US but had some memorable launch titles. Before we get to that though we have some very important matters to discuss like classic rock, Star Trek games, the triforce in ancient culture, and what life lessons Kirby games can’t teach your children.
