Post Twitch Asylum Video Game Radio Episode #2 
Our second podcast is now available! Download it here.

It is only our second podcast and we are already breaking format, but with good reason. In this episode, we are all about Atari.

In our "Retro Respect" segment, we discuss the fantastic video Once Upon Atari, which takes a look back on the lives of the early Atari 2600/VCS developers. Then, we have the pleasure of having an extended phone interview with Howard Scott Warshaw, probably best known for developing the 2600 titles, "Yar's Revenge" and "E.T.".

During the phone interview Howard discusses a wide range of video game (and some non-video game) topics including; what it was like to develop on the early VCS hardware, his most memorable 2600 game development achievements, the stressed relationship between marketing and engineering, the influence of money on developers, the crash of the 80's, and where he thinks video games are heading in the future.

Our "Gaming Moments" this episode include a look at "Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure", "Full Auto", "Black", "TimeShift", "Grid Wars" (PC Geometry Wars clone), and of course, "Geometry Wars".

In our look at the news we discuss the fact that Utah passed the, "Games-as-Porn Bill", The Xbox 360 Camera and Microphone, the forthcoming "Stay Alive" movie, and the fact that West Virginia schools are about to adopt DDR games as part of their curriculum.
