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.

On today show I talk about the film classic, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension.

retroist newhart podcast

Retroist Podcast – Episode 197 – Newhart

On today’s show I talk about the eighties’ sitcom hit, “Newhart”. I start off talking about how I would and still do run a good catchphrase into the ground (it is a compulsion of mine), then I move onto the show. I talk about the cast, the creator, the characters, the “location” of the famous Inn, the show’s reception, the final episode, its music and much much more. Newhart is an amazing show. I hope this might encourage people to check it out.

retroist-movie-rad

Retroist Podcast – Episode 196 – RAD

On today’ show I talk about the 1986 epic BMX-themed masterpiece, RAD. I start off talking about my short-lived bike helmet, then I move onto the movie. I talk about the Director, writers, cast, plot, reception and I throw in a few surprises here and there. It still surprises me how few people are tracking down this film, so please try to track down a copy, I think you will enjoy it as much as I do.

Music on the show was provided by Peachy (the James Di Pasquale of Wales), if you have musical needs, why not contact Peachy at peachy@retroist.com. And “like” him on his Facebook Page.
