  • Retroist Podcast Episode 280 (The Six Million Dollar Man Toys)

    19/08/2022 Duração: 23min

    Welcome to the 7th episode of the 15th season of the Retroist Podcast. Today’s episode is all about the toys from the seventies sci-fi classic, The Six Million Dollar Man. This episode was a surprise to me. I had recorded a section about toys during my Six Million Dollar Man podcast. When I listened back to it, I had two problems. The segment was too long to be a part of a podcast. I didn’t like the flow. It was missing something. So when I released the episode, I removed most of the discussion of toys outside my initial story and thought I would try to rerecord. This episode is the result of my efforts. It is slightly different from my standard podcast in that I mostly discuss the toys. So a little but more opinion and a lot more retro audio. I hoped you find it as fun to listening to it as I did putting it together. The show starts with a little discussion about something I content with as a collector, “what do we hold onto?” Then I move into the toys!

  • Retroist Podcast Episode 279 (The Six Million Dollar Man)

    05/08/2022 Duração: 30min

    On this new episode of the Retroist Podcast, I talk all about this classic Seventies TV show, The Six Million Dollar Man. An amazing superhero show that was way ahead of its time. It was so successful that it spawned a 2nd series and lingered in movies after being canceled for a decade.

  • Retroist Podcast Episode 278 (Real Genius)

    22/07/2022 Duração: 35min

    In 1985, the sci-fi comedy, Real Genius, hit theaters. Perhaps ahead of its time, its message made it a bit different from many other college-themed films that had come before it. While not a blockbuster, the film would develop a cult following and had a great run on cable TV and home video. 

  • Retroist Podcast Episode 277 (Willow)

    08/07/2022 Duração: 35min

    Willow is a charming fantasy film from 1988 that often gets overlooked.  On this episode of the Retroist Podcast, I look at the conception, production, and reception of this wonderful movie.

    24/06/2022 Duração: 32min
