Episode 348 – Military Trackballs

TRL episode 348 art
This week MTV is preparing to come back from the dead and we wish the TRS-80 a happy birthday! We also get glitched before jumping from box art to card games based on edutainment. We’re going bowling in the arcade and after that we might swing by Quark’s bar to have a synthale with Chief O’Brien on this episode of the Retro League.
