A recent addition to my subscribed podcast list is RetroCity, a new retro gaming podcast by IGN’s Levi Buchanan. A mix between the esoteric and well-trodden, each episode runs 15-20 minutes and covers a small segment of gaming history, its music, and collecting retro.

Contrary to most gaming podcasts out there, Levi produces the show with minimal conjecture, a dollop of nostalgia, and a calm, NPR-like quality, speaking directly to the retro gaming nerd without pandering to the mainstream. If you’re the sort of person who collects Rob Hubbard tracks and remembers the early days of EA with fondness, or if you’re of the younger generation wondering why all the old guys even care about this stuff, give it a listen.
