Episode 163 - CoCo-Pi project update

This week we're going to focus on the latest and greatest update to the CoCo-Pi project which now has an official web site http://coco-pi.com We'll show you a 30 minute tutorial on how to download and set up your Raspberry Pi 3 or 4 to run the CoCo-Pi image. We show you how to add all the CoCo ROMS to MAME, how to download and run software, and how to add your own software to your system. This will be followed by a live Q&A session with Ron Klein who's managing this project.

You can enjoy CoCoTALK! live and as audio and video podcasts, visit http://cocotalk.live to learn how and join us on Discord http://discord.cocotalk.live
