Takes me back to a curious time

I was 12 in 1985, & curious about technology & all things electronic, at the time. This podcast takes me back, in a retro way to revisit, the Cold War era, & the nostalgia of why things were the way they were.

Interesting, but...

This is a very informative podcast and I learn a lot of neat trivia that isn't always discussed when these topics are brought up. However, I find it hard finding the connecting thread to your topics. Metallica losing the Grammy to Jethro Tull and then you transition into codebreaking during World War I? You mention the band performing "One" which is based on a WWI soldier's experience, but your attempt to tie an 80s reference to your theme is a bit thin. You spent so much time setting up the Metallica segment, playing the performance, that I expected more connecting tissue than what you provided. Maybe that is the maze part of this podcast. Will continue to listen because it is just so informative and better than other podcasts out there, so keep it up.
