Recently, I've started up my own computer history podcast. I've been interested in vintage computing for as long as I can remember, and finally decided to take the plunge and try to give back to the community. So here it is: Advent of Computing.

What I try to do with each episode is highlight an event or technology from the past, earlier the better, and how we still see it's impact today. I'm 6 episodes in right now, and looking forward to many more.

Enjoy, and let me know what you think!
I've enjoyed listening to each episode. Your enthusiasm for each subject is infectious. I also picked up an Intel 4004 t-shirt to help you on your way. Please keep going; there are a lot of great stories to tell.
I've just discovered the podcast and am rapidly consuming its' content.
If you haven't covered this yet, you could do an episode on the SuperPET which provided one of the first attempts to offload mainframes using microcomputers.
I just listened to the 100th episode. What I like most is the in depth reporting on really unusual subjects.
I listen to these podcasts while I am out for a walk. Sometimes I get so absorbed I am surprised I haven't walked into a tree.
Also just started listening. This is a podcast I have been looking for, definitely! I like the narrative quality as opposed to the "group sitting around and bantering" stuff you get in a lot of modern podcasts. Yours feels more like an audio book to me, which is exactly what this subject matter needs. Well done!
