Let’s first start with “What Is Retro?” Retro is simply anything related to or revived from the past. In other words, Retro is a celebration of history or a recognition of history repeating itself.
We experience something retro every day. Seeing someone wear out-of-style clothes. Hearing a song we haven’t heard in years. Reading that a restaurant is bringing back an old menu item. Whether we deem these experiences as good or bad, they are all retro. But when retro feels good and generates those fond memories, that is called nostalgia which was the foundation of The Retro Network.
So that leads to the question, “What is The Retro Network?” We are an online platform that covers popular culture which is retro in nature. Simply put, The Retro Network is “Pop Culture, Past and Present.” Through original articles, news, podcasts, videos and social media, The Retro Network celebrates history and history rebooted, often through the eyes of nostalgia.
So whether you are looking for a great read, a visual mind jolt, or just a laugh on the commute to work, The Retro Network is your source for retro.
