Retroist MacGyver Podcast

Retroist MacGyver Podcast

Welcome to the Retroist MacGyver Podcast. On today’s show I talk about the classic TV show, MacGyver. I start off talking about what a poor MacGyver I would make since I lack subtlety in my handiness. Then I move onto the show itself. I talk about the cast, the people in front of and behind the camera. After that I touch upon the movies, the comics, the reboot and much more. This is a timely episode for me since I am in the middle of a re-watch of the original. It is a great show, so I hope it inspires some of you to do the same.

Members of the podcast team (my Phoenix Foundation) are back this week. Vic Sage brings you a brand new, “Why Should I Know this Person”. Metagirl plumbs the depths of MacGyver and delivers the Retroist Top 5 episodes of the show. Glad to have them back.

Retroist Rubik the Amazing Cube Podcast

Retroist Rubik the Amazing Cube Podcast

Welcome to the Retroist Rubik the Amazing Cube Podcast. On today’s show I start off by talking about the dark urges one feels when challenged to solve a puzzle they are not capable of solving. Needless to say, it is not pretty. After I unburden myself of this, I move onto the subject of the podcast. I talk about this glorious underrated animated gem from the 1980s. Which I honestly love despite its ludicrous writing and plot. During the show, I discuss the production, talent and much more.

Vic Sage is back on the show with a “Why Should I know this person.” This time Vic talks all about the very talented Michael Bell. metagirl wades through the not vast number of episodes to bring you the Retroist Top 5 episodes of Rubik the Amazing Cube.

This episode was originally released as part of the supporter series. I think enough time has gone by that other people might enjoy giving it a listen.

Retroist Mazes and Monsters Podcast

Retroist Mazes and Monsters Podcast

Welcome to the Retroist Mazes and Monsters Podcast. On today’s show I start off by talking about my encounters with the film, but more importantly how my family reacted to it. As it turns out, I have a pretty cool family. After I get through that, I start talking about this 1982 telefilm. I talk about the people in front of and behind the camera, including the author of the original book, Rona Jaffe. Then I talk about the inspiration for the story, the plot and so much more.

The episode contains a great audio treat that was put together by Retroist author, blogger and collector Greg (RetroArt). Greg tracked down the legendary dice wizard Lou Zocchi, who founded Gamescience, and got him to talk about how he feels about the Retroist Podcast. Thanks to Greg and Lou for making my year with this. If you are a regular listener to the show, you can expect to hear this new audio in any RPG or game related podcast I put out in the future.

Retroist Xanadu Podcast

Retroist Xanadu Podcast

It took me a while, but I am finally releasing the Retroist Xanadu Podcast. In this episode I start off talking about how I liked to enjoy this film as a kid. Which leads to an encounter with one of my sister’s boyfriends that did not go well (for him). Then I move onto the film and talk about its inspirations, the people in front of and behind the camera, the soundtrack and much more.

This is probably the finest roller disco themed film about Greek mythology that has ever been made. I hope this episode encourages you to check it out.

Retroist Buckaroo Banzai Podcast

Retroist Buckaroo Banzai Podcast

Welcome to the Retroist Buckaroo Banzai Podcast. On today show I talk about the film classic, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. I start off talking about how lucky I was to see the movie as a kid and then how difficult it was trying to convince everyone that the movie was amazing when I none of them could ever see it. Then I talk about the movies itself. First I mention one of the biggest inspirations for the film, Doc Savage. After that I discuss the people in front of and behind the camera, the plot, the music, the film’s reception and much more.

This is my 200th episode and I want to thank everyone who keeps listening to the show. Your continued interest helps make this a lot more enjoyable to do.
