Ratchet Retrocast Ep 14Welcome to the Ratchet Poolcast! Travelling back in time to July, we follow Ratchet’s long-standing conspiracy about the pool episode in ’80s-everything. We are joined by Talloolah Love, the burlesque performer responsible for Pin-ups by the Pool and the Glamour Geek Revue coming to you this Dragon Con, and an enthusiast for all things retro. We discuss more than 20 cartoons and live action shows that feature girls in bikinis or boys in trunks airing in and around the 1980s. CD rediscovers Gummi Bears and finds the ThunderCats nudes, Q mimics the voice of Seaspray (the aquatic Transformer), Ratchet almost had another date with someone famous, and Talloolah prefers Marianne to Ginger. In Achievement Unlocked we chat about buzz Alden’s right hook, LotR, and Wonder Woman. Our Steampunk Quarter Hour features Gabriel Colbaugh of the Las Vegas Steampunk Tea Society!

The enthusiasm of this poolcast is brought to you be the adult beverage industry.
