TRN Podcast 003 – Throwback Drinks, More Batman Memories

The Retro Network Podcast returns with Mickey reporting on his road trip to Play It Again Arcade and Jason’s good fortune with his New Coke order. Our pop culture news segment Recurrent Events includes the new Contra: Rouge Corps video game, G.I. Joe Film News, a WWE/Ghostbusters action figure mashup, Scrooged getting the remake treatment, the OJ Chase at 25, an Upside Down Whopper, an animated Fast & Furious series and much more. The TRN Hotline then heats up with another Batman ’89 interview, this time with movie guru Chris Tanski of and the Saturday Night Rewind podcast. Our main topic this week is the trend of throwback drinks and some we’d love to see return to store shelves. Finally, we will give a rundown of recent articles and what’s coming up on this week.

Be sure to stick around between segments for the Clip of the Week, a CBS News report from 1985 on the release of New Coke. Plus, you’ll hear a few classic TV commercials from Coca-Cola and Pepsi during the ’80s Cola Wars era.
