CoCoTALK! episode 220 - Markus Blumrich

Today we'll speak with Markus Blumrich who hosted one of the original Color Computer "super sites" on the internet and hear some fun and fascinating stories from the CoCo glory days.

We'll also introduce a new segment from Game Designer Rick Adams: Raiders of the Lost CoCo where he'll go over some code samples from professional video games.

If we're lucky we'll also have some assembly from George J and who knows what else?
