S4E17 - Ep 084: Free Toy Inside!

Remember when breakfast cereals came with prizes right in the box? We sure do!

This episode is definitely part of a balanced breakfast.

Ignoring the dirty looks from mom, this week, we jam our grubby mitts into some cereal boxes to pull out the free toy packed inside! Remember those Wacky Wall Walkers? How about the Nabisco Spoonmen? Listen as we chronicle some of the weirdest and most memorable free prizes from the 50s to the mid aughts!

Later on, we'll tackle this week's Octoponder This and hear which cereal mascot our Retroids think would take the belt in a massive Royal Rumble style battle royal. And Nintenjoe takes us home with another band you need to check out in Power To The Metal!!

S4E16 - Ep 083: Playing Cards and Building Decks (with Dani)

An old friend and professional poker dealer helps us spotlight card games of all suites and sizes!

When we decided to do an episode on card games, we immediately thought of our good friend Dani! She was a professional casino dealer for over 12 years and possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of not just Magic The Gathering but just about any card game you could mention.

So roll up your sleeves and prep those poker faces, because we cover everything from Go Fish and Solitaire to Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh!

S4E15 - Ep 082: Themes From A Memory 4 (Anime Edition)

It's time again for Nintenjoe to lead us into a bunch of blocks of theme songs! This time, it's all anime!

It's music time again, folks!

Nintenjoe's popular recurring Themes From a Memory is BACK. This time, the mission was to choose cartoon shows from the land of the rising sun, Japan! That's right, we play some killer theme songs from anime old and new, some in English, some in Japanese. As always, we hope you'll have plenty to be nostalgic about while finding one or two new things you'll want to check out!

Also lurking in this episode, we announce the three winners to our 900 Retroids Facebook contest. Let's throw some tentacles in the air for Eric Michaud, Russ Lyman and Mary Hart!

S4E14 - Ep 081: Predator and Prey / No Time To Bleed

A deep dive into the films and video games featuring those invisible xeno-hunting badasses, the Predators!

There's something out there waiting for us, and it ain't no man...

In honor of the new period Comanche vs Predator show "PREY", we power up our plasma cannons and set our triangular sites on the every movie and darn nearly every video game to feature a member of the Yautja race!

All that plus we'll read the answers to this week's Octoponder This question before Nintenjoe gets us to the CHOPPA with his first edition of Retro Nouveau!!

Crow's Nest 23 - Batmobiles In The Belfry

The #1 most iconic vehicle in all of geekdom, we discuss and rate every on screen version of the Batmobile!

ZOOM! PLOWIE! Out of the shadows speeds this supplemental Crow's Nest!

Since we just talked about 8 awesome vehicles on our last mainline episode (080: Vehicles / Characters That Drive Us) we wanted to take the time to spotlight one we purposely swerved around. The Batmobile debuted in 1938 in Detective Comics #27 and has been cleaning up the streets of Gotham ever since!

For this episode, we cover and rate every film version of Batman's iconic wheels and even a few you might not be expecting!

S4E13 - Ep 080: Vehicles / Characters That Drive Us

We gas up and cover some iconic vehicles that are as important as the heroes who drive/fly/operate them!

Ready for some ships, quips and automobiles?

When iconic hero vehicles come to mind, you probably think of things like the Batmobile, The DeLorean and of course KITT. Funny thing is, we are going to dive a little deeper than that. For this episode, we'll shine the headlights on 8 vehicles from movies, tv and cartoons that really feel like characters in their own right.

And later on, we've got a BIG THINK Octoponder that requires a bit of creativity, and Parasite Steve will deliver his latest new game that looks and plays like an old game for another Retro Nouveau!
