The Retro Asylum podcast show was launched in October of 2011.
Whilst other shows talked Nintendo & SEGA, Retro Asylum would discuss the systems the British audience had grown up such as the ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64 & Amstrad CPC as well as the consoles and looked at classic British games such as Manic Miner & Chuckie Egg.
Within a few months of the show being launched it had shot into the top 20 of the iTunes gaming chart.
Eventually Retro Asylum would manage to knock modern gaming podcast’s such as IGN, Giant Bomb & The Official PlayStation Podcast off of the top spot of the iTunes gaming chart and has now done so on numerous occasions.
In 2015, Retro Asylum was voted “Best Video Game Podcast” in the very first UK Podcasters awards and just a year later the show was voted "World's Best Podcast of 2016"
