Hi, Jeremy, please listen to all the shows and we'll try to steer you towards how to get started. Each week we try to cover topics that will help newbies and veterans alike.

Hey guys,

Just wanted to let you know I'm really enjoying the podcasts. And that's despite my never even using an Atari computer before. If Wikipedia is correct, I was only one year old the Atari 8 bit line went out of production. So it's not a nostalgia thing for me - I'm just fascinated by it all!

Any recommendations for the best place to start out with the Atari computers? Leaning more towards programming for them, not just using.
