Welcome to Confessions of an Arcade Addict, a podcast about classic video gaming told from a more personal point of view. Join your host Brian, as he meanders through the years of classic arcade gaming through his own memories, insights, and personal stories of classic video games and arcades, from the middle to late 70s right up to the present day.

 

I will post the show notes from the first five episodes, and future show notes will be posted here as well.
