Retronauts Episode 441: Dizzy

These are the yolks, folks

Oi oi oi, what's all this then? A podcast about eggs? Regular eggs, not even Yoshi eggs? This is a retro video game podcast, not a supermarket, and "retro eggs" are just plain rotten.

Calm down folks, I'm having a laugh: This week's episode cracks open a major untouched topic for our programme, namely, Dizzy. Created by two British teenagers in 1987, Dizzy went on to become one of the biggest stars of the medium—at least in the UK. Across the pond, he never made much of an impact, but that's all the more reason to dedicate an entire podcast (one of our longest ever!) to recounting his adventures.

Stuart Gipp, in a role he was born to play, serves as our host and guide through the Dizzyverse, along with returning guest Dave Bulmer. Will there ever be a more egg-ucational episode of Retronauts? I think not!

Description: The time for yolking is over. Or, more accurately, has just begun. Stuart Gipp and Dave Bulmer reconvene to discuss the immortal Dizzy series.
