Episode 428 – I Don’t Wanna Grow Up

TRL episode 428 art

This week light defines form and shapes our understanding of space. We also hit the road while trying to avoid cholera, starvation or drowning in a river. Our listeners have shared so many memories of Toys ‘R’ Us that we had to make a special segment of it, and people are making some outrageous demands for the characters to be in the next Smash Bros game. We’re repairing N64 memory cards and trying to learn the difference between aisles and isles in this episode of the Retro League.
