Every weekend, I like to share a curated list of retro, geek, & nostalgia-themed articles, stories, and posts that I’ve come across in the last week. It gives you a chance to escape the daily grind, and just sit back and pass the time reading about the good old days. So with that in mind, here are some things I wanted to share with you.
I don’t know if you heard the news or not, but I’ve partnered with Jeff from Yesteryear Retro to launch a new podcast on The Retro Network called the Gnarly ’90s Podcast. In every episode, we’ll be covering all aspects of the ’90s, both good and bad. Our first episode just debuted, and to support the launch, we’ve taken over the front page of The Retro Network with seven new ’90s-centric articles. Here they are for your enjoyment:
- The History of Crystal Pepsi (The Retro Network)
- A Day in the Life of a 90s Kid (The Retro Network)
- ‘Dinner & a Movie’ on TBS (The Retro Network)

With Valentine’s Day just a couple of days away, it’s the perfect time to highlight some mixtape ideas. A handmade mixtape is about as great of a Valentine’s gift as you can give your significant other. Eric from The Retro Network has put together some mixtape theme ideas for us, and I want to highlight them here.
