TRN Podcast 002 – Fave Arcade Games, Batfan Interview

The Retro Network Podcast is back with your first taste of our regular format!  First, Jason and Mickey chat about recent happenings in their lives which includes a fun upcoming trip to a retro arcade and digging through the clearance section at Hobby Lobby. The next segment titled Recurrent Events features a good amount of pop culture news from this past week including the Rambo: Last Blood trailer, Punky Brewster reboot, a new Blockbuster themed party game, new Looney Tunes cartoons, a new Guns N’ Roses album, and much more. Jason then dials up the TRN Hotline to interview “Batfan” Ben Rollier about his experience with the Batman ’89 film and his Batfan.com blog. Then our main topic this week is all about our experience with arcade games back in the day and the machines that took most of our quarters. Finally, we will give a preview of what’s coming up on TheRetroNetwork.com this week.

Be sure to stick around between segments for a flashback interview with the original 1966 Batman, Adam West, and his reaction just prior to the release of Batman ’89. Plus, find out how you can win a set of Super Mario Brothers minifigures by listening to our arcade discussion!
