Customer Reviews

Love the blog, so happy it’s in pod-form

Every single Retropolis blog post has been nothing short of fascinating. Making a podcast was probably a no-brainer. Can’t wait for more eps!

History rediscovered

Have found Retropod to be very interesting and have brought attention to many moments in time that I had no knowledge of look forward to it every morning kind of like a soap opera of new history tidbits.

How can such a short podcast be such a waste of time?

With the approximate depth of a fact-a-day calendar, this hardly deserves the label "history." The net effect is an unsatisfying trickle of fun facts...that are rarely fun.
