TechnoRetro Dads

Greetings, Programs!

The last Monday in January has come and this episode promises to be more than meets the eye (or ear, ear bud, or taste buds, for that matter).

When THE SPECIALIST showed up for this cold call episode of TechnoRetro Dads, he had no reason to suspect the inquisition JediShua and shazbazzar had for him.  Whether the topic was Froot Loops or a game console that predated him by years, CHRIS LUBY of SMORE GEEKS is up to the challenge and sticks with JediShua and shazbazzar for the entire podcast!

With News pertinent to the 70s, 80s, and today as well as History Lessons that continue to impact the world we live in today, no other podcast provides the scope and escape to nostalgia this week as this episode of TechnoRetro Dads.  Download, listen, subscribe, and settle in with your ear buds for another great start to your work week on January 27, 2014.

Add in some speculations about Star Wars: The Clone Wars upcoming episodes (not spoilers, just speculations on rumored titles), and there is enough in this episode to keep you busy for...

...well, at least 77 minutes.

Is JEK-14 more than a clone?  Does he remind anyone else of Steve Austin, the Six Million Dollar Man?  With that arm, it just might be possible.

With Mike from Looking away to the Horizon and Chris from Star Wars Kidscast, JediShua and shazbazzar discuss the many finer points of LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles.  What isn’t to love about these LEGO Star Wars specials?

Included in this suspiciously transhuman episode of TechnoRetro Dads is news from CES, an announcement about VSI, and the release of the new documentary, I Know that Voice!  Sit in front of the TV for some Saturday morning cartoons with Tom, Jerry, Muscles, Spike, Snap, Crackle, and Pop.  Discover reading (and even singing) computers way back in the 70s.  Revisit Jaime Sommers and Steve Austin in their iconic, bionic roles.  Plus Hungry, Hungry Hippos, a Tonka Jeep, and Eric Bauza as Chris Rock!

It’s a totally awesome overloaded episode of TechnoRetro Dads to get your work week off to a great start!

Greetings, Programs!

The new year is well underway and we are launching Congressmen into space.  Well, we already did, it seems.  Tune in this week and you will be better prepared for that Jeopardy audition as well as a possible job of creative rearranging of words to force clever acronyms.  TechnoRetro Dads is more than just two guys waxing nostalgic week after week -- it is informative and thought provoking.  After all, before today, you did not know that C.H.A.M.P. stands for
Comet
Halley
Active
Monitoring
Program

But we do more than educate, we have fun this week, too.  From ice-skating in Mississippi to dismantling decorations in Denver, the topics flow from the King to the Fisher-Price Kingdom and every color crystal in between (even the Dark kind), JediShua and shazbazzar bring the 70s and 80s to today with an amusing mix of flashbacks and fast forwards that will keep your reel-to-reel working overtime.

So download early every Monday morning and listen to every juicy nugget of #TechnoRetro good times in a podcast where “B+” is just about the best thing that can be said about a person.  Get your work week started on the right foot (or the left, as long as it is the one you prefer) and be positive all week long!
