After being accused (rightfully so) of crimes against Amiga, my guest Rees of Ctrl-Alt-Rees joins me to talk about his Atari obsession, dive deeper into some of the history of the Atari and how the Amiga very nearly became an Atari product rather than a Commodore one!
As always, a huge thanks to Rees for taking the time to chat, it was a fun episode to record and I absolutely learned some things about the Atari I didn’t know about. What are your memories of the Atari range of computers, did you have one, did you hate them? 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.
