I’m particularly excited to be bringing you this 2-part episode because I will be covering the Atari 400 & 800 computers. This first episode will cover the history of these machines and next month I will cover Web sites, emulation, books, software, magazines, tech specs, and much more. Even more exciting, for both episodes I have several special guest hosts helping me cover these topics. I think you’re going to enjoy these.
