The Atari Jaguar Game by Game Podcast

Aug 9, 2015
01 - The Jaguar Story - Inception to Launch

In this unexpectedly-massive episode, I talk about how the Atari Jaguar came to exist, include a bunch of magazine and newspaper references, and describe the console both inside and out. There are a lot of stories and a ton of great user submissions.  And maybe a spider.
