In this special episode, Rick, Cmart and Paul talk about their adventures at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo 2018. It's chock-full of exciting Intellivision content, both old and new! The Blue Sky Rangers panel (Intellivision - A Legacy of Firsts!), which was moderated by Paul is also included. And there are tales of border crossings, Intellivision Day 2018, and something Rick knows nothing about but will soon. Oh, and our good buddy George is here too, still a bit bitter about not being invited to the expo. Maybe next year, George?

In this 'not-so-special' (and quite short!) special episode, we discuss what's been happening, why there haven't been any new episodes for a while, and what the plan is for the podcast going forward. George has a few things to say too...
Mon, 3 July 2017
In this special episode, we reminisce about Intellivision legend Keith Robinson (Keith died on June 14th, 2017). Rick, Paul and Cmart are joined by Scott Schreiber of the Retro Gaming Roundup Podcast, and Chris Bidwell of Now You're Playing With Podcast. Tommy Tallarico talks to Paul about his Keith recollections, and Emily Reichbach Rosenthal (VP of Intellivision Productions) also shares her thoughts on him. And listener Chris Dreher contributes a fun story about Mr. Robinson. The Intellivision community has lost one of its greatest assets with Keith's passing, but join us as we celebrate what Keith has done for the Intellivision community.
