TechnoRetro Dads

Greetings, Programs!

Hold the pickles, hold the lettuce!

Special orders don’t upset us.

All we ask is that you let us

serve it your way.

Halloween is over, the Christmas catalogs are hitting the mailboxes, and you need to download TechnoRetro Dads.  Whether you are looking for a princess dress, a TMNT playset, or even a Honda Scooter, you will want to hear what is happening with some of your favorite franchises from the 70s and 80s as JediShua and shazbazzar climb into the Way-Back Machine again to drum up some memories of those days gone by.

Is it a bunny or a vampire?  Did Death come knocking at your door last Thursday night?  Why does a squirrel hang out with the salmon mousse?  These questions and more await you in this early November episode of TechnoRetro Dads!

Have you gone to work in costume?

Is there a bowl of candy on your desk?

Are you totally prepared for tonight’s onslaught of Trick or Treaters?

Start your Halloween morning on the right foot, hoof, paw, or claw by downloading and listening to the TechnoRetro Dads Spooktacular.  JediShua and shazbazzar recall past Halloweens while giving some tips and ideas to make today and tonight even better with music and sound clips.   

Plus: we circle our families in our living rooms with Peanuts, waiting for the Great Pumpkin to arrive.  Maybe our pumpkin patch will be judged most sincere…

Get in the Mystery Machine this week for a trip back in time with JediScooby and shazzy as the TechnoRetro Dads investigate the creepy-kooky Addams family in another Monster Cereal TechnoRetro Challenge.  Stick around for more detective work as Dave Filoni opens up about what could be a lead on at least one Rebel from the upcoming animated Star Wars series as we Decode the Director.  

On top of that, Bill Nye gives Sheldon a try, Arndt is out, and we give Sega a little bit of air time.

Start your work week off with a blast from the past and some hints about the future in this pre-Halloween episode of TechnoRetro Dads!

After a week off for National School Lunch week, TechnoRetro Dads is back to talk about the things we loved in the 70s and 80s.  JediShua and shazbazzar are in the Arcade this week (thanks to Satka and Womp) to eat some pizza, play some games, and talk about the news, speculate on Star Wars: REBELS, remember the Munsters, and share memories of classic video games.  Start your work week right with TechnoRetro Dads!

We tried to meet up in Columbus for a special holiday version of TechnoRetro Dads, but evidently, there is more than one Columbus in the United States.  We will be back next Monday to help you start your work week on the right foot.  Until then, celebrate School Lunch Week!

Do Mondays sometimes make you feel like you have rocks in your head?  Then get up and get your earbuds -- you are going to want to give this episode a listen as early as possible as we take an improbable journey into the old School House with some sedimentary, metamorphic, and maybe even igneous geological samples from the groovalicious past and not even recent formations.  JediShua and shazbazzar drum up some tunes, but not before getting the word out about the latest news...

Get a glimpse of Star Wars: REBELS tonight on Disney XD.  Wow!  No one saw that one coming!

Then, take another TechnoRetro Challenge during Monster Cereals Month as the Goolies groove out their tunes in classic cartoon style.

If you remember the tunes that were fun, funny, entertaining, and even educational, you will be sure to dig the October 7 episode of TechnoRetro Dads.

You can live in the future and in the past each Monday on TechnoRetro Dads.  This week, we look to a 2030-something Mission to Mars and remember a super-powered prehistoric ball of fur better known as Captain Caveman.  We also take a Journey into Imagination as EPCOT opens its gates in 1982 just a day before we first traveled through time with Phineas Bogg in Voyagers

Mondays are fundays with TechnoRetro Dads.  Join us each week!

Boom-shakalaka!
Do I have your attention, now?

Alchemist and Idea Generator (Spencer Brinkerhoff III) joins JediShua and shazbazzar for up to twenty-six year-old memories of the classic and quotable movie of a story within a book, The Princess Bride.

 
While the weather is wet in the West and love bugs get lonely in the South, we check out the inconceivable news as well as study our History Lesson from the 70s and 80s.  Plus, a TechnoRetro Bowl update as we see who is the biggest and strongest going into the third week of our first Fantasy Football season.  

Contact us with your responses to the TechnoRetro Challenge this week as we watch Captain Caveman while munching on Cinnamon Life cereal.

TechnoRetro randomness abounds in this week of historic season premiers, legendary unveilings, and lunar cheese excavations.  Plus, discover why Indonesia Jones and James Camaroon are in Jakarta, why Rowling is rolling in Fantastic Beasts, who is responsible for the iconic Vulcan hand-gesture, and possibly even find out how Boba got his beskar’gam.  

 
Friends of the show are invited to interact through TechnoRetro Challenges where we recapture the magic of Saturday mornings long ago with a favorite cartoon and a bowl of cereal.  This week, we eat Toucan Sam’s Froot Loops while watching the classic Godzilla cartoon.

With Drive-in movie tips, TechnoRetro Bowl highlights, and a history lesson with BSG, Buck Rogers, and even Captain EO, this episode of TechnoRetro Dads is flooding with memories!

What is wrinkled and green and can be formed from merely five folds?  Origami Yoda, of course!  Superfriend Tom Angelberger joins shazbazzar and JediShua for some funtime talk about his newest addition to the Origami Yoda series: The Surprise Attack of Jabba the Puppett.  This Monday morning batch of TechnoRetro goodness mixes a shot of stellar scientific dancing with a pinch of baby footwear boogie and serves it up on a nice plate with Green Eggs and Ham.  

Download early and listen in your home on your phone or on a train with your brain.
