Retroist River Raid Podcast

Retroist River Raid Podcast

Welcome to the Retroist River Raid Podcast. On today’s show I talk about the Atari 2600 classic, River Raid. I begin the show by discussing how while I miss a lot of the stuff from the past, being connected and online has its advantages. Especially when it comes to high scores in video games.

Then I move onto the games itself. I discuss the company that published the game, Activision before going into the background of the designer of the game, Carol Shaw. Finally I dive into the gameplay, scoring, strategy, sequel, ports and more.

Retroist Dinosaurs Podcast

Retroist Dinosaurs Podcast

Welcome to the Retroist Dinosaurs Podcast. On today’s show, I talk about the nineties TV cult classic, Dinosaurs. I begin by talking about my mixed feelings about how this show ended and how I feel about sitcoms who have “unique” endings. Then I move onto the show itself. First I talk about the show’s creation and probable inspiration before moving onto its creators. Then I discuss the people who voiced these wonderful characters, the shows’ reception and much more.

This was wonderfully creative TV that I hope I can inspire you to check out.

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.
