TechnoRetro Dads

December is here and in full swing, but before the release of Rogue One in just ten days, shazbazzar and JediShua take time to talk about some favorite Christmas memories as well as some ideas for making this year great.  And they invite all EarBuds to Tweet pics from Christmases Past (especially with Santa Claus) this week!  

 

In the NEWS…

Dan Trachtenberg turns Houdini into some sort of superhero in The Secret Life of Houdini.  Star Trek Discovery gets its captain and some crewmembers.  We will finally get to see Billy Dee Williams as Two-Face in a Batman movie!

 

A Very Brady Christmas

The ‘Dads felt it would be a fitting tribute to our favorite #TechnoRetro sitcom Mom by looking back at the first Brady Bunch special (1969) as well as watching A Very Brady Christmas (1988) for the first (?) time.  Florence Henderson will always be cherished in our memories and after watching an episode of The Brady Bunch, everyone is hooked on the show again!

 

Toys in the Attic

Iconic Christmas toys persevere even decades after their inception.  Play-Doh has been a fragrant favorite since… oh, before you were born.  JediShua and shazbazzar talk about the appeal of Play-Doh for all ages for generations.

 

Don’t forget to review us on iTunes to be entered for a one of two free copies of Empire of Imagination: Gary Gygax and the Birth of Dungeons & Dragons from author Michael Witwer.  Let us know about your memories of The Brady Bunch or other Christmas specials via voicemail at (209) 878-7323 or electronic-M to podcast@TechnoRetroDads.com.

 

Share and enjoy.
