Today was an unexpected podcast. Back in February, my @Returntothe80s Twitter account of 17,000 followers was hacked and stolen. I tried to get it back, but to no avail. So I started over. Then I just got an email today from Twitter saying that it has been rectified. I now have my old account (and most followers) back!
While I was in a good mood, I wanted to give a special shout out to my close friends and followers that I could think of, as well as promote some newer retro podcasts I’ve been loving.
Finally, I have started a Patreon page. It was started for my Rhode Runner side of things. But, there is ’80s extras in there as well.
You can visit https://www.patreon.com/TheRhodeRunner to check it out, and see if you’d like to donate $3. Currently, there is a podcast episode about The Romantics self-titled debut album, as well as a short story I wrote about my boot camp experience in 1989.
