In this episode, it’s my great pleasure to chat with Neil from RMC Retro, the chief Cave Dweller himself. It would be fair to say that my biggest source of retro content has come from other cave dwellers, or those closely associated with the retro community.
Neil has built a full-time YouTube channel and now an exhibition space around ‘The Cave’ and we talk about how he started out with making YouTube videos to sell his collection, moving on to the popular ‘Trash to Treasure’ series, and of course how a colouring book brought in the much-needed funds to open the cave to the public.
I really hope you enjoy listening to our chat, it was a lot of fun to record and chat about some of our nostalgia for retro computing. Do let us know your experiences with retro tech in the comments, we’d love to hear from you, so send a note over to [email protected], leave a comment on the post, or start a discussion in Goodpods.
If you liked this episode or any of our content, we’d greatly appreciate any little bit of support you can throw our way over at our Ko-Fi page.
