On the latest episode of The Retroist’s podcast, I have a brief cameo doing another “Talking Tech” segment. This episode is about the 1981 Gary Coleman film “On the Right Track,” which takes place (mostly) in Chicago’s Union Station, with several scenes shot in an arcade that was there at the time. During my short segment, I talk about several of the games that appear in the film including the easily identifiable, the not-so-easily identifiable, and one that appears to have been made specifically for the film.

Check out Episode 139 of the Retroist, On the Right Track.

Here’s a recap of the articles I wrote for Retroist.com this past week:

Monday: I mentioned the 25th Anniversary of Madonna’s Who’s That Girl?, both of which were released in June of 1987.

Tuesday: I posted some advice: Never Trust A Rancor, complete with six pictures that (I thought) were funny. Comments ranged from “I loved it!” to “How can I avoid reading anything else you write ever,” so … response was mixed.

Friday: In honor of the new Batman film, I wrote about my Batman Green Machine, complete with a few pictures form when I was four-years-old.
