One of the Best Nostalgia Podcasts Around…

Like so many others, I found this podcast during the pandemic of 2020, and I’m so glad I did.

There’s no shortage of 80’s themed podcasts available, but retroist is different; while each episode focuses on one specific subject, like Miami Vice, Pizza Hut, Atari 5200, etc. What makes this different (to me) is the focus. Each episode discusses the necessary information to remind you of the topic, or learn about something that maybe you didn’t experience back in the day. Each episode is concise, but thorough. Great show! Easy to binge.

Gives me warm fuzzies

Listening is like wrapping up in a warm blanket on the family couch with the blue glow of the tv lighting your face.
