“Did you know that once upon a time you could mail your children?”
That’s the first question posed by Washington Post reporter Mike Rosenwald in a preview of the Post’s newest daily podcast Retropod. The show, which officially launches on February 12, is a spinoff of the Retropolis blog, and will revisit forgotten aspects of U.S. history.
“After the launch of the Retropolis blog, we discovered a thirst from readers to learn more about America’s rich history in a fun and engaging way,” said Mike Rosenwald, host of the Retropod podcast and staff writer for The Post. “Listeners of all ages can enjoy hearing about colorful characters from our past – forgotten heroes, overlooked villains, dreamers and more in the Retropod podcast.”
Each podcast is less than five minutes long, will air every weekday morning at 7 a.m. EST and can be heard on Amazon Echo, Google Home or on other podcast platforms.
“These bite-size episodes are designed to be part of listeners’ daily habits and are perfect for both smart speakers and traditional podcast listening,” Jessica Stahl, director of audio for The Post, said in a statement.
