Celebration of retro-nostalgia and fandom

A fun, colloquial, and regularly updated podcast that celebrates pop culture, fandom, and nostalgia from the 80s onward. Hosts Bernie and Pete are amiable with good rapport with their guests who come from a variety of backgrounds: filmmakers, editors, authors, academics, and so on. Episodes straddle different formats to keep things fresh and interesting: sometimes its top 10 lists, sometimes it is deep dives into a specific movie or show, sometimes its broader with high level discussions. A fun podcast to hear different perspectives and personal stories about pop culture old and new.

These are conversations you'd have with your friends and it's been captured nicely here. You can tell host Bernie Gonzalez and his guests have a passion for this kind of thing and it shows throughout each episode. It's quickly become one of my favorite podcasts to listen to.
