In this episode we review the Mattel Electronics Intellivoice game TRON Solar Sailer by the late Keith Robinson. We interview former Blue Sky Ranger Mark Urbaniec about his involvement with the game, and his memories of working with Keith. There's a listener interview with Steve Craft and his brother Jay. There's a lot of non-Christmas talk by George, and numerous clips from Keith Robinson (sourced from previously released and unreleased material) about TRON Solar Sailer. And of course we have Feedback, News and even a few Easter Eggs. This is also our longest episode ever, clocking in at just over 7 hours!

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.

Sun, 29 January 2017
Rick discusses the Portland Retro Gaming Expo 2016 with Cmart (Chris Martin), FreeWheel (Gary Magnan) and Tarzilla (Don Switzer). They go into the expo in general, the Intellivision homebrew games that were released and shown, and other side stories that may or may not involve dank restroom smells.
Thu, 22 December 2016
In this episode we review the Mattel Electronics game Royal Dealer. Cmart (Christian Martin) joins us again, as does George, spreading some holiday cheer in this December / Christmas / Holiday episode. We interview former Mattel Electronics 'retail merchandiser' Ken Stefancic, and have our usual helpings of Feedback and News. There's plenty here, even for those folks who don't care about card games (like Paul)...
Tue, 18 October 2016
In this episode we review the Atarisoft game Pac-Man, and the IntelligentVision game Ms. Pac-Man. We also interview both programmers; Mike Winans (Pac-Man) and Carl Mueller Jr. (Ms. Pac-Man). Cmart (Christian Martin) joins us again, as does George, and a surprise guest during News. We're gearing up for the Portland Retro Gaming Expo 2016, but not all the hosts could be present for all aspects of this episode. Due to that, and the fact that it's almost Halloween as this episode is released, there may be some unusual occurrences in the timeline...
Thu, 21 July 2016
In this episode we review the Mattel Intellivoice game Space Spartans. We interview the programmers Steve Roney and Bill Fisher. Rick reviews the Atari and Imagic box collection from Mark Oberhauser.

And of course George is here, along with our usual Feedback and News.
Thu, 26 May 2016
In this episode we have a special guest host - Cmart (Christian Martin)! We don't do a game review, but we do review the latest edition of Todd Holcomb's Ultimate Intellivision Flashback, as well as the Coleco reproduction box set by Marc Oberhäuser. We have our usual Feedback, News and George. And for some reason, Rick is tooling about town on a Penny-Farthing bicycle?
