It's an awesome podcast, really hope they broaden it out with more regular contributors,
and maybe the occasional interview like Amiga Roundtable used to do.

Yep, it was a empty barren wasteland the last few years if you were looking for an Amiga podcast. It looks like it's picking up steam again.

Hello everyone! It's hard to believe Amigos has been rolling for almost a year! We've expanded our coverage and now, in addition to our podcast, have video reviews, hardware and repair videos, and long-form written features on the weird and wacky in the Amiga world! We also produce a video version of our podcast each week. You can check everything out at amigospodcast.com (http://www.amigospodcast.com), and be sure to subscribe to our Youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtsK4QYe2tRdIxoZxwkX3Ww).

We're always looking for listener rigs to showcase on our site and folks from around the world to interview. If you'd like to contribute, please send me an email at amigos@amigospodcast.com. Thanks for listening!

Kolbjorn! We meet at last! :) Please tell me the proper way to pronounce your name!
Title: Re: Introducing Amigos: A New Amiga Podcast
Post by: kolla on May 31, 2016, 12:42:44 AM
Haha, sure :) Pretend it is Scottish, so rrroll the r, and pronounce the ΓΈ kinda like "i" in English "girl" or "bird", or "ea" in "heard"... or "e" in "Bernie", lol. So, "kol-byern" ;) Literally translated it means coal-bear, so a coal black/brown bear... like my avatar here (tada)

Sadly the music is not _exactly_ the same, luckily you can put on your own sound track, for example...

Wow, that looks...different. I can't imagine it would control well on a touch screen, but I may just be too old :)
