In this episode Joe takes you back to a time when “Rad” could pass as a first name and no idea was too wacky to make it into a video game.

The Backlog is a show that focuses on overlooked gems from gaming’s long and storied history. These days it seems like every game released is promoted as a blockbuster Triple-A title, but way back when, some games were just tiny releases that didn’t get any promotion at all. My goal is to introduce people to these great games that never got the love they deserved and inject some of that old-school flavor into your life. Every game featured is still inexpensive and easy to find, making it easy to experience these buried treasures.
