Leo Laporte interviews the author on Triangulation:
Shortly after I got my first computer in 1982 — a Commodore VIC-20 — I started looking for information regarding games, programming, computer hardware, etc. One of my first dependable sources for information came in 1983 when I began watching a new PBS television show called Computer Chronicles, hosted by Stewart Cheifet.
This week, Cheifet is interviewed on Leo Laporte’s Triangulation. It’s a good interview, with lots of discussion about the early days of personal computer technology. And, if you’re interested in viewing any of the old episodes of Computer Chronicles, you can find them all at the Internet Archive.
