TRN Podcast 037 – 80s Breakfast Cereals

Jason and Mickey are back with another topic as voted by our listeners, the Best Breakfast Cereals of the ’80s! First, we catch up on life with Mickey feeling under the weather and Jason making the mistake of watching Venom with headphones. Then, it’s on to the latest Recurrent Events pop culture headlines including:

  • Wayback Weekend announces two movie screenings
  • Greyhound movie trailer
  • Batmobile reveal from The Batman
  • KFC and Peeps Crocs
  • Masters of the WWE Universe wave 2
  • Mickey takes the Inside the Actors Studio questionnaire in honor of James Lipton’s passing

Our TRN Time Machine segment this week sponsored by the RetroDaze YouTube Channel is our favorite breakfast cereals from the ’80s. We talk about if our parents allowed those sugary cereals, our favorite bowl, and whether gimmicks or taste influenced our choices. Then we reveal out Top 5 list including a couple memories surrounding the choices. Plus, Jason reveals the one cereal he wishes will NEVER come back plus a couple honorable mentions. Then we’ll read back our listener’s favorites which includes our reaction to a cereal shrine photo sent in on Twitter.
