TRN Podcast is on vacation this week, but that doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in all the retro pop culture from the last 7 days! If you are going through some Halloween withdrawals, you’ll find some leftovers including Dino Drac’s review of Zombie Skittles and the scariest ’80s video games. Stranger Things 4 news is already circulating with casting new characters and a probable Halloween 2020 release. There is also plenty of toy news this week including McDonald’s going retro with Happy Meal toys and new They Live ReAction figures. But my favorite thing leads off with a deepfake of Tom Selleck as Indiana Jones.
