Apparently, Retropod continues online available to read, but not as a podcast currently. I miss it and hope it returns soon.
Bring retro pod back.
Retro pod is a wonderful short brief Podcast. It was a wonderful way to start off the morning every day. It’s a great way to fight this silliness of lies and conspiracy wackos they are putting out nonsense into the environment. I think it is absolutely important. Put pressure on The Washington post to get them to start it back up. After all don’t you want your children to know the correct truthful history? Or maybe you would like to really know what truth is
Notate rerun episodes, please
Minus two stars for not denoting rerun episodes in the episode titles. There are too many not to do this! Otherwise good.
