Who knew that Chariot had a microcomputer revolutionary connected to a consultant on our staff? Turns out, we do.

Bill Mensch co-invented the 6502 processor, the chip that launched the Apple 1, Commodore VIC-20, and many other devices - and he did it all in our backyard at MOS Technology in King of Prussia, PA. Today we interview Chariot consultant Rod Biresch and his uncle Bill Mensch to discuss his role in the founding of the microcomputer revolution.

This is part 1 of a multi-part series.
