View Full Version : Podcasts focusing on CP/M?

I listen to may podcasts on Retrocomputing, including Retrobits, Retro Computing Roundtable, Trash Talk, Coco Crew, Open Apple, and Floppy Days.
While these are all great podcasts, they are not specifically focused on any particular aspect of Retro computing (and that's ok with me).

Since I'm new to CP/M, I was looking for podcasts dedicated (or at least highlighting) CP/M. I've done enough searching, but didn't find any.
I did find plenty of references to CPM though ;-)

If you know of any podcasts (or specific episodes of podcasts) which highlight CP/M, please reply.

Thanks

Well, I would say that TRS-80 Trash Talk does focus on a particular aspect of retro computing given its name! But, I'm only a host. :)

I like the idea of a show focused on CP/M and will add it to our list of topics for a future episode. There were a lot of ways to run CP/M on the different TRS-80 models. Of course, we will only focus on the TRS-80 platform on our show.

You're correct. I added TrashTalk after typing the other podcast names, because I've just started listening recently.

Pski == Peter Cetiniski?

That sounds like a good idea for an episode, although I'm not focusing on any platform in general, just CP/M itself.
I look forward to that episode though.

Wow, you don't listen to our podcast, the History of Personal Computing? I'm kinda hurt, geez.

Hello David,

I think I may have listened to some episodes, but don't recall any about CP/M.
Let me take another look.

Thanks

Please forgive this old geezer, but what is a podcast, exactly? Mike

Hi Mike

It's a downloadable audio file that you would copy to your iPod and listen to later on, in the format of a radio show (in this case, about vintage computers). Of course, you could just as easily listen to it on a PC, but that was the original intent. Podcast is a mashup of "iPod" and "broadcast".. probably ;)

Cheers
JonB

It's just like a radio show.

You can see an example of one on our website at http://www.trs80trashtalk.com.

You can listen right in your browser if you don't do the podcast thing.

Hi David

Liking the book. Seems ironic that we are looking nostalgically at a collection of newsletters that are looking nostalgically at old computers...

Thanks, I'm a little out of touch with some of this newer stuff. I can listen to pski's website, but other than that how does one find these, especially the ones related to the older computer topics? Mike
