Retrograding is a bimonthly podcast where three nineties kids give adult looks to our favorite childhood movies. Tune in as we discuss details of the plot we missed as kids, give reviews as to the rewatchability of the film and the emotions it invokes, and play games that give the film a new perspective. Also, we'll try to be funny and entertaining, but honestly, no promises.
