In this episode I look at the Activision game Private Eye, by Bob Whitehead. I hadn't put any time into this game before, and I couldn't put enough time into it for the podcast, but I did enjoy it and hope to come back to it. Next up will be Laser Gates by Imagic. If you have feedback for the game that you'd like to hear on the show, please send it to email@example.com by May 2nd. Thank you all very much for your kind words about my return, it means a lot to me. i appreciate you all hanging in there. and as always, thank you for listening.

In case you missed it on the Oscar episode, my friend Richard is sponsoring a contest where you can win loose Atari 2600 Sesame Street carts! It's very simple to enter, all you need to do is send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, with Contest in the subject header. There will be 3 winners! 2 people will win loose carts of all 4 of the Sesame Street games: Oscar's Trash Race, Alpha Beam with Ernie, Big Bird's Egg Catch, and Cookie Monster Munch. The 3rd person will win loose carts of Alpha Beam with Ernie, Big Bird's Egg Catch, and Cookie Monster Munch, but without end labels. If you already have the games or if you've won something from the podcast before, please let others have a turn. Please send me your entries by April 30th, and the winners will be announced on the Laser Gates episode. Thanks to Richard, and thank you all for listening!

Welcome back to the podcast everyone! I hope you all are well, and I very much appreciate all the kind words and patience. Today we start the 5 digit Atari part numbers with Oscar's Trash Race, a product of Atari and the Children's Computer Workshop, a tiny little division of Sesame Street. This is the first in a series, so there's lots to talk about. I hope that you enjoy it. Coming up in 2 weeks is Private Eye by Activision. If you have feedback for Private Eye that does not include the Hall and Oates song, please send it to me at email@example.com by April 18th. Please make sure you listen to the end of the podcast for a very special Sesame Street game related contest, sponsored by friend of the podcast Richard Grounds. Thanks Richard! I'll post a separate entry for the contest in a few days, but you can send your entry as soon as you hear the episode. Once again, thank you for your patience, your kindness, and of course, for listening. Extra special thanks to my beautiful wife Sarah for getting this ball rolling again. 💖
