    Teen Witch is a messy earnest mixture of teen fantasy, rap music, and magic. No wonder this 1989 film has earned a reputation as a cult classic.

    Retroist Freddy’s Nightmares Podcast

    In 1988, Freddy's Nightmare started being broadcast on TVs across America. A lot of people freaked out that a show this racy could make it onto over-the-air television and feared that it would confuse and desensitize youth. This, of course, just made the show more appealing to the youth they were trying to protect.

    Retroist Kodak Disc Podcast

    Retroist Kodak Disc Podcast

    The Kodak Disc was a technological marvel. It excelled at capturing the imagination and money of a whole lot of people. Sadly it didn't excel at taking photos. Nowadays people look back on it as an icon of the eighties, but many people might not realize what a costly failure it was for the company that made it.
