TechnoRetro Dads

Greetings, Programs!

 

Star Wars is everywhere!  Rebels begins this week (or, if you are one of the fortunate ones, it has already begun), The Clone Wars continues to release information and episodes, the Target toy aisle has some new offerings (and Toys ‘R’ Us even has an entire Star Wars aisle, again)!  With our favorite TechnoRetro franchise in high gear, we HAD to talk about it… a lot.

 

But that’s not all for this first Monday of fall!

 

Wasps invade a Colorado home.  Mac is back in L.A.  The Black Hole may or may not exist.  Uncertainty invades the realm of science like an improbability drive.  And we listen to our Ear Buds with some Scrapbook feedback and Jim’s frustration with the amount of SPOILERS on our show.

 

 

It’s a lot of fun this week on TechnoRetro Dads.

As your body grows bigger, your mind must flower! It's great to learn, because TechnoRetro stuff is POWER!  This week we explore the top 5 Schoolhouse Rock Songs (according to ABC anyway) Plus, Shua continues to help Shaz through No-Computer-Therapy.  Doggone it, we'll get through this!

Greetings Starfighters! ...er, I mean Programs!  Shua here! I'll be editing the show this week.  But Don't Panic! I know what I'm doing...I think.  But it'll all work out because we are talking Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy: Tertiary Phase with Super Friend, Brother Matt!  Plus, we get Blue as we discuss those Smurfy Smurfos, The Smurfs, while we Smurf a Smurfy Smurf of Kix!  Plus, this week's Science Lesson discusses Squishy Robots.  So have a Smurfy Monday as you listen to TechnoRetro Dads!

Yes, we know it’s neither morning nor Monday -- but we needed to get this special update out to all our Ear Buds about ABC’s celebration of School House Rock this Sunday night at 7/6c.  Check it out, then send us a message with your thoughts, your favorites, and your memories of School House Rock for a later episode of TechnoRetro Dads to (209) TR-TRDad or (209) 878-7323 or send us an electronic-M to podcast@TechnoRetroDads.com

 

 

There will be no regular episode this week due to USERS and PROGRAMS not feeling up to snuff last week.  We’ll be back to our regularly scheduled programs soon.

Greetings, Programs! 

This summer has been a wild ride (or, more literally, wild rides).  As Labor Day weekend symbolically closes the summer with one final weekend of theme park rides and water park slides, this episode marks the conclusion of our Theme Park Summer.  To wrap up the season, we invited Glen Nelson of High Adventure to join us for a last look at Theme Parks with a focus on Lake Compounce, the longest-running theme park in the nation.  He brings along a great theme song for all thrill ride lovers, “Rollercoaster”, written by Todd Howard and included on the first High Adventure album, Acoustic Prog Pop. In a bonus electronic-M, Geography expert (and Ear Bud) Greg Fields locates Holiday World and Indiana Beach.

 

PLUS: JediShua reveals controversy in the world of animated animals.  Audible offers a deal on R.A. Salvatore’s collection of Dungeons & Dragons stories, The Legend of Drizzt (FREE). Space travel may get a boost by the Quantum Vacuum Plasma Thruster (called “the impossible engine” by some; pronounced “pthhgt” by others).  

 

 

Leave us your voicemail at (209) TR-TRDad or (209) 878-7323 or send us an electronic-M to podcast@TechnoRetroDads.com, post on our Facebook, or tweet us on Twitter.  We will be closing out the summer season next week, so it’s time to let your amusement park memories be heard!
