28th October 2023 1 hr 12 min

The PiStorm is coming to the Atari ST, joining the Amiga with the high spec/low cost CPU accelerator. Special guest Mark Fixes Stuff joins us this week to talk about that and our other stories. They are, how did we survive before Google came along and can playing a game really cause you harm? Things get a little spooky in this (very loosely) Halloween edition of your favourite retro show.

We also read out your answers to this week's Community Question and quickly look at a few other stories in Dave's Housekeeping.

We are sponsored by *Pixel Addict* magazine. Issue 15 is the latest available and in it you will find a history of Lemmings, an interview with Neo Byte Force (creators of Neo Geo games) and a look at the Commodore SX-64. *Visit for more details.*
