Another week, another Retro Roundup, and all the baggage that represents. I don’t mean “baggage” in the sense of “odious personal issues” or whatever, though, I just mean it carries around the Retronauts podcast in a quaint little carpet bag for a dose of Reconstruction Era nostalgia. It’s tough to get more old-school than that.
And I never bothered to link to this week’s Bonus Stage, because I’m painfully self-conscious about it. I hate seeing myself on camera looking all pale and fat and uncomfortable, and that’s basically the entirety of the new episode. But life hates me, so naturally my quiet effort to passively sweep it under the carpet has been utterly thwarted; this is far and away the most popular episode to date. So with 100,000 views already inflicted upon it, I guess I might as well give in to the inevitable and join the linkfest.
Sorry. Next week is 100% real-person free, I promise.
