The ColecoVisions Podcast Minisode - The Console Living Room at interview

Interviewed Mr. Joh Vilk, a volunteer on The Console Living Room project at   This project is working to archive game roms from the older classic gaming system.  One of which is of course the Colecovision!  What is neat about this project is you can click on a game rom to find out when it was released, its size in KB, any information about the game rom plus scans of game manuals!   You can even click on the rom to play it in a pop up window using the JMESS emulator, now how cool is that!
