Today on The Retro Network Time Machine podcast, Mickey and I travel back to 1985 and rediscover He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Magazine. I have vague memories of the publication and I'm not really sure if I owned any copies as a kid. On the podcast, we describe our way through the pages of Issue #2 including the He-Man Mailbox, Orko’s Earth Report (pop culture news), the He-Man of the Issue, Advertisements, and more. I also did a little research on the publisher's backstory to help setup the show.

As you listen, you can flip through pages of Issue #2 by clicking over to the Internet Archive and viewing a scanned copy. Listen to the podcast below and subscribe to The Retro Network Time Machine in your favorite app like Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Amazon Music, and many more.
