About Steve Strowbridge

Welcome to the patreon page for the various projects that will be produced and offered by yours truly, Steve Strowbridge, aka "The Original Gamer Stevie Strow" (website)

I've been a life-long fan of arcade, console and computer games, and have devoted my life to being a gamer and video game fan, and since 2015 have been providing YouTube content, ranging from game play reviews, to interviews, news, and live talk shows.

The journey of creating YouTube content has been a wild ride, what started as just "playing games on the internet" evolved into meeting and interviewing the living legends who created the games I love.  I've learned of the various retro computing communities, and attended several vintage computing festivals.

We created a live talk show dedicated to the Tandy Color Computer, called CoCoTALK! and the process of doing this, has given birth to the idea of creating more of these talk shows covering a wider spectrum of vintage computing and retro gaming subjects and systems.  The process of creating this show has evolved into assembly a team of hosts, co-hosts, segment producers, content creators, etc., it's become a "serious thing" for our fun hobby.

I've spend all my spare time, energy and money devoted to the retro hobby, and creating content and resources for fans of vintage computing and retro gaming.  None of this was ever done "for the money", but there are people who do like to support efforts like these.

For those of you who are considering becoming a patron, we first and foremost want you to know that the proceeds generated will go right back into the productions, covering the costs of hosting and producing the show, as well as helping compensate some of the cast and crew with things like upgraded cameras, headsets, microphones, improved bandwidth, etc.

We hope to continue to create new and innovated content and resources for the retro fans, and hope that the production value, quality and quantity of these projects improve with time.

Thanks for your consideration, and potential support.

You may only be young once, but you can be retro, forever!

Stay retro!
