  1. I have to admit that I was no more than mildly interested when you announced this episode, Joe. Interstate 76 or 67 or whatever? Never heard of it!! Nonetheless, with your podcast, with the clever use of sound clips from the game, your compelling summary of the story, you’ve definitely piqued my interest!! Congratulations! To me, that’s even more amazing and more praiseworthy than making a great podcast about a game I already know and love. You’re definitely doing something right, keep it up!!

    • Thanks! It’s certainly a hidden gem. Frankly I can’t even remember what initially compelled me to buy it back in ’97, but I’m glad I did.
