TechnoRetro Dads: Seriously, Just Enjoy Stuff!
Bro, do you even TechnoRetro? Have movies shaped your life? What cartoons taught you life lessons? How does cereal teach independence? This week we look at why we still love all the great things we grew up with and how they shaped who we are.
We grew up with so many great things. And we still love remembering it all today. Has it affected who you are as much as us? Jay and Shua reminisce about how they got where they are and share some of the influences of you, the Earbuds, too.

Whether you enjoyed GI Joe, Bugs Bunny, or Challenge of the Super Friends, Saturday morning was a special time in a kids life in the 70s and 80s. Which shows were your favorites? Did the raving commercialism actually do us harm, like the so-called experts claimed? Or did it help us with creativity and ethics? That’s probably a matter of opinion, but either way, they stuck in our brains all these years.
Did you have a local arcade in your town? Or did you have to ride your bike to the 7-Eleven to indulge in your favorite game? Jay and Shua share their stories about why the enjoyed their experiences with the house of games and how it helped them grow.
Let’s All Go To The Movies
Arcades weren’t the only escape we got to go to when we were younger. The movies gave us an opportunity to learn valuable life lessons too. And a lot of times we capped off the time with a little jaunt around the mall. How did you experience your movies? Let us know, and try to make it a great experience for the next generation.
