If anyone knows of podcasts related to retro and homebrew computing, please post below.

The only ones I know are:
  • The Amp Hour - Sometimes the guests have a retro/homebrew computing background
  • The Computer History Museum's Oral History series - Not quite a podcast but a number of heavy hitters are featured. My only wish is that they would also upload audio-only versions on SoundCloud etc.

Not homebrew, but definitely retro, is the Floppy Days Vintage Computing Podcast:

Some items in the hackaday podcast might hit the mark - there's a number of RISC-V items in the notes for Episode 0: ... in-review/

The CoCoCrew do a 6809-centric podcast for fans of Tandy's Colour Computer - lots of notes and links with each episode:

Curious Minds cover science and tech history and will sometimes have something computer related. I see an item on the UK's Domesday project (6502) and one on Fortran:

(I do appreciate some textual notes and hyperlinks to go with podcasts!)

There's a list of podcasts here.

There are a few retro computing podcasts I listen to to keep me entertained while commuting:

Retrobits Podcast -

The Grandaddy of all retro podcasts, Earl Evans has been producing the Retrobits Podcast since 2005. Recently episodes have been few and far between, but the back catalogue is amazing, and Earl is releasing new episodes as he can.

1 Mhz Podcast -

This Apple II focussed podcast has been produced by the always amusing Carrington Vanston since 2006. Carrington's trademark trick is unboxing new old stock software and trying it out live on the podcast. Fantastic stuff!

RetroMacCast -

James and John have been releasing new episodes of this classic Macintosh podcast every week or two since December 2006. Way to go guys!

Retro Computing Roundtable -

I remember when David Greelish began this podcast back in 2010. Now running with co-hosts Earl Evens and Carrington Vanston this is a must listen for anyone interested in old computers. They also record live on the YouTubes - check it out at

Open Apple -

The inimicable Ken Gagne and Mike Maginnis have been producing this Apple II podcast every month like clockwork. And what a great show it is. You'd be remiss not to add it to your podcatcher today.

No Quarter -

Carrington Vanston (1Mhz, Retro Computing Roundtable) and Mike Maginnis (Open Apple) go head to head each episode with a different classic arcade title. A great listen for anyone who fondly remembers to age of the video arcade.

And, last but decidedly not least, the longest, baddest retro gaming podcast of them all...

Retrogaming Roundup -

UK Mike, So Cal Mike and Scott Schreiber are responsible for this monstrosity; regularly running at 4-5 hours per episode, this monthly podcast is dedicated to all things retro gaming. These guys have some of the best interviews on the web. Not Recommended for Small Children of Those of Sensitive Disposition.
