It has been a tremendous grand opening week here at TRN, and we want to thank everyone who has visited the site, listened to the pods, watched the videos, read the articles, and interacted with us on social media. We hope you continue to be entertained as time goes on, as we have a lot more in store for everyone.
But right now, we want to look back at the first week of the network and give you quick access to everything in case you missed something.
The debut episode of our flagship podcast dropped, with Jason and Mickey discussing numerous topics including New Coke, Robert Pattenson being cast as the new Batman, Godzilla, the ins and outs of TRN, and included an interview with the creative geniouses behind the SequelQuest Podcast.
Join the SequelQuest Crew of Adam, Jeff and Jeramy as we pitch our ideas for a Bird Box Sequel. What could be next for Sandra Bullock’s Malorie and the world of blind survivalists? Will it be a tale of Boy and Girl all grown up to take on all comers as blind fighting survivors in a world gone crazy? Perhaps a chilling spin-off prequel telling the tale of Charlie’s co-worker, Fish Fingers? The ideas come fast and free in our first podcast episode on The Retro Network, so listen now!
