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)

No company did more to make computers household items than Commodore. Many great names are associated with that success, Chuck Peddle, Jack Tramiel, Irving Gould, and many more, but maybe more important than any of them was the man that made sure the funds for such lofty goals were available, that man was Don Greenbaum, banker and later treasurer of Commodore.

We talk about those early days at Commodore, the rise to mass market greatness, the exit of Jack Tramiel, and the acquisition of the Amiga.

Recorded November 2021.
