Join shazbazzar and JediShua each week for a look back at the 70s and 80s as they share the fun and fandom of their youth with their friends and families. Topics include TV, film, music, and games of the 70s and 80s as well as franchises which have continued into the 21st Century, like Star Wars and TRON. TechnoRetro Dads are a blend of new and old as stories are passed down from one generation to the next.
TechnoRetro Dads: Thanks for Nut N Honey!

TechnoRetro Dads: Remembering Connery and Other Legends
The TechnoRetro Dads pay tribute to some late, great ones. Sir Sean Connery left behind a wide variety of movies. Jay and Shua look back on the ones that made a difference. Plus, we took a look at the November 1980 Starlog’s interview with Mark Hamill.
TechnoRetro Dads: Funyuns and Flagons
The TechnoRetro realm turns medieval as we talk with Superfriends Mike Witwer, author of Heroes' Feast: The Official Dungeons & Dragons Cookbook and Antony Soehner, author of After School Adventures.
TechnoRetro Dads: Candy Coated Special
Not very scary Halloween specials were a staple as we enjoyed our retro candy choices. Do they stack up against today's sweets?

As Halloween approaches, get ready for some spooky games in the arcade! Plus, learn a lot about life on the 30th anniversary of Edward Scissorhands.
TechnoRetro Dads: Steppin' Into the Twilight Zone
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to Dads. We look at Twilight Zone: The Movie, the classic show, and the Golden Earring song and misheard lyrics of 80’s songs.

One listen leads to a hundred more
What a great show. I started listening about a year ago, then went back and listened to all the old ones. They talk about new stuff thats related to the old stuff we love, the old stuff we forgot we loved, and everything connected to it. All with a sense of humor, nostalgia, and kindness that is sorely needed. For an hour or so each week you can listen to instant friends talk about the best times and memories of your life. The dad jokes are terribly bad in the best way, and who doesn't love cereal? Retro video games, t.v., movies, books, and life experiences, all talked about in a relatable way. Give it a few listens, and you'll wonder how you got through the week without it!
Great great show!
If you cannot get NEW episodes of Geek out Loud then definitely give these guys a listen! Growing up in rural central Illinois and being the the oldest child / cousin I didn’t have some one to share geekdom with. Techno Retro Dads has only grown my fandoms and I’ve been able to share that with my son, so I applaud y’all for that!
Positive nostalgia at its best!
If you get up sometime in the 70s and 80s, or early 90s (or just appreciate the pop culture of that time) this is the podcast you’re looking for! The hosts have great chemistry (including the current substitute host) and are always talking the great things we grew up with... Star Wars, Saturday morning cartoons, arcade games, Atari, Nintendo, superheroes, toys we grew up with, 70s and 80s movies, tv, and music, and of course cereal. Nothing from their (our) childhood is off limits. The best part of it all is the overwhelming positivity and fun that each episode brings. These guys never hate on things they don’t enjoy. What a refreshing difference compared to most of the other podcasts out there! The production quality is also much better than a lot of other podcasts. Download an episode...you won’t be disappointed!
