TCW Podcast Episode 160 - The 100,000 Part 1


We want to thank everyone for helping us to reach 100,000 downloads of the podcast!  We started in September 2015 and are amazed at the love & support we have received.  To celebrate, we are looking at the list of the SPA's highest sellers of computer software in the 1980s.   We start off in part one looking at the three 500k sellers and then move on to the 250k sellers.  We get a view of the computer software market during this time, and have a little fun too!
