Retro and current gen gaming chat, with Trev and Stu, its the Console Shockcast! Friend of the show and all round retro gaming legend Dan Wood joins us again to talk about a certain computer platform that we have all expressed a fondness for over the years. Nope, it’s not the Sinclair QL, it is the Commodore Amiga!

– Has the A500 mini started gathering dust on owners shelves?
– How the Antstream service is bringing Amiga classics back to life.
– Amiga events returning to the UK!
