Rediscover the '80s was created on October 1, 2011 as my personal blog about rediscovering pop culture from my childhood in the 1980s. It has transformed over the years into a website, offering original editorials, articles, videos, and commentary on retro pop culture from the '80s (and early '90s which were my high school years) and it's impact in the modern era. My lifelong friend Wyatt Bloom and other guests authors contribute to the website from time to time.

I've also developed a podcast feed to delve further into '80s pop culture. The Rediscover The 80s Podcast features shows like "Memory Jogger" with cohost Wyatt Bloom, a Top 5 countdown show called "Rank 'Em" featuring various guests, and "Rediscovered" which reviews obscure and overlooked movies, television, and animation with cohost Wyatt Bloom. Search for Rediscover The 80s Podcast on your favorite app like Spotify, iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, TuneIn, iHeartRadio, Pandora, and more.

You can also read my memoir about growing up in rural Pennsylvania in the '80s. Biking to Buzzards and Other '80s Childhood Memories is available in the Amazon Kindle store. It features 44 pages of short stories like riding my bike to the local candy store, Halloween antics, and just memories of playing with the neighborhood kids.

RD80s thrives on social media which includes sharing links, visuals, and videos on platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram with over 72,000 combined followers. Connect with RD80s by clicking the icons at the top or bottom toolbars of this website.

I love writing and talking about music & pop culture so much that RD80s isn't enough! Along with friend Mickey Yarber, I've developed another retro pop culture experience titled The Retro Network. Pop culture past and present lives on through written features on the web, a podcast network packed with weekly nostalgia, and a YouTube channel with a variety of shows.
