TRN Podcast 043 – Extinct Snack Foods

Jason and Mickey are back to resurrect some snacks from the past! First, we talk about what’s been going on in our lives this past week including more stuff we’ve been streaming at home. Then, we run down this week’s Recurrent Events headlines which include:

  • Saved By The Bell and Punky Brewster reboot trailers
  • Bob Ross streaming app
  • Streets of Rage 4 release date
  • G.I. Joe retro toyline update
  • Flamin’ Hot Doritos Locos Tacos

In this week’s TRN Time Machine segment sponsored by the RetroDaze, Jason and Mickey head to the grocery store from decades past and add some extinct snack foods to our virtual shopping cart. Stuff like potato chips, cookies, desserts, frozen treats, and lunchtime trade bait are all mentioned during the discussion. Plus, we’ve got a shopping list of feedback to pass along from Twitter that we’ll read back to add to the conversation.

We finish up this week’s show by giving you the two options for next week’s topic poll on Twitter, our podcast schedule for this coming week, and more content to find on The Retro Network website and Patreon page.
