Welcome to your weekly source for retro pop culture news, the new Recurrent Events! For 2 years now I've posted The Weekly Links wrap up every Friday on RD80s and recently decided it was time for a fresh approach. The new Recurrent Events will offer the same type of retro-based article links I've always shared but will also incorporate an accompanying podcast to add a new dimension each week. I also be venturing some outside the decade of the '80s in order to capture even more content.
Sifting through the headlines each week always makes me want to chat with my peers and get their reactions to all these reboots and such. The new Recurrent Events Podcast will feature myself and a few of my podcasting friends tackling several of the top retro news headlines of the week. I hope you'll take a minute to listen and subscribe so you can get inject some retro into your Friday commute or work day!
This week's podcast topics include the Greatest American Hero TV series reboot, Mark Walhberg's 6 Billion Dollar Man movie adaptation, the new Star Trek series on CBS, a Contra video game sequel being released in China, and the new G.I. Joe POP! Vinyl figures. Guest are Chad E. Young (@horrormoviebbq), Brian "Hail Mary" Morin (@bmorin54), and Wyatt Bloom (@infamouswb). Stream the latest episode above or visit the Recurrent Events Podcast webpage. You can also subscribe to the podcast on Stitcher or iTunes.
Here are some headlines I posted this week on RD80s, some of which we discussed in this week's podcast:
Okay, moms and dads. I'm calling you out to force your teens to listen to more '80s music! As evidenced by my favorite video of the week, the React channel proves that our kids need more Run-DMC and a-ha in their lives!
