Videogame podcast

This first 100 episodes are from the golden era of the podcast, when 1up was owned by Ziff Davis Media (for the first time, anyway). The regulars included host Jeremy Parish, Ray Barnholt, Shane Bettenhausen, Chris Kohler and Scott Sharkey with Jenn Frank being a semi-regular guest. Shane had a notable presence on the show with his encyclopedic knowledge of video games coupled with his strong opinions. Jenn was often underestimated by the rest of the crew, but she had extensive knowledge on Atari 2600 and classic PC games. 1up had an embarrassment of riches in terms of the amount of knowledgable gamewriters it had under its wing, so Jeremy was able to round up several guests to cover a myriad of subjects that weren't in his wheelhouse as shown in the Diablo and Starcraft episodes.

The podcast changed dramatically after much of the 1up/EGM staff was let gonear the beginning of 2009. Shane was one of the casualties of the layoffs, consequently limiting him to very rare appearances on the show from then on. The rest of the main crew remained intact, however. Knowing that the pool of 1up staff members had shrunk significantly, Jeremy changed the format of the show from a longform podcast to a show with multiple topics. The shows generally showed up less frequently, too.

These episodes were from the second iteration of Retronauts where it became of a Live Call in show although not all episodes contain callers.Retronauts Prime Episode 58 - 59This was the last iteration of the show before 1up was purchased and the podcast moved to its current fan supported format.Retronauts OtherI have labeled it that way in the title to include any minisodes or specials not part of the normal numbering scheme 7 Episodes in All.
