The Video Game Newsroom Time Machine is a weekly retro gaming podcast in which we travel back in time to see what was making headlines 40, 30, and 20 years ago in the arcade, video game, and computer gaming business and interview industry veterans. 

We try to put those events into historical context to understand how the industry of today came to be. 

It's fun and educational! (in case you need to justify listening to it to a significant other)

In this special episode, we delve deep into the Federal Communication Commission's major rule change in 1979. 

The change altered how radio frequency emissions from computers would be regulated for years to come and affected every major player on the market, be it computer, console, and even arcade.

To help us understand the technical side is QuarterPast83 who has made it his personal mission to understand this often overlooked yet extremely important chapter in the computer industries history.
