I have been playing video games for over thirty years. I did a music podcast from 2005-2014 and have been an avid listener of podcasts going back to the early days of shows like Daily Source Code, TWiT, Security Now, etc. I became inspired in the fall of 2015 by podcasts like Back In My Play, Retronauts, and Watch Out For Fireballs and decided to create my own retro gaming podcast. It took some time to get it off the ground, but I have done almost twenty episodes so far and plan to do them twice monthly in 2017 with breaks in May and August (due to my work schedule). 

The goal of Giraffe Feels is to discuss retro games in a manner that is personal to me. Video games in many ways saved my life and absolutely altered the course of it. They were also there at the heights and many lows of my childhood. A lot of the memories of my youth are connected to a game. I hope that podcasting about those connections makes the podcast very personal for the listener. I know it is very cathartic for me. 

The general idea for an episode of GF is to keep it between ten and twenty minutes. I do not want to waste the time of anyone. The idea in my head is to combine the format and style of the "micro" Retronauts episodes with the way Back In My Play has endless enthusiasm for discussing the childhood memories of Kevin and his guests. 

I thank you for your time and funding for this podcast.
