TRN Podcast 044 – Random ’80s Things

Jason and Mickey are back to talk about random things from the 1980s that have been on our brains lately. First, we catch up on our personal lives this past week including a great baseball card documentary we found on Tubi. Then, we run down this week’s Recurrent Events headlines including:

  • HBO Max reveals launch date and Looney Tunes trailer
  • New episodes of Fraggle Rock
  • Original Ghostbusters 3 script details
  • Chicken and waffles flavored Pringles
  • Iconic G.I. Joe artist passes away

In this week’s TRN Time Machine segment sponsored by the RetroDaze, Jason and Mickey scramble their brains and make an omelet of random ’80s things. TV shows, food, toys, and much more are brought to the conversation including several random topics from out Twitter feedback army that we’ll give our thoughts on.

We finish up this week’s show by giving you the 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.
