Jay Malone (@JCorduroy) once lived in a cupboard under the stairs, has been to a galaxy far, far, away (Chicago), and frequently fights off bouts of boredom by rolling dice and pretending to be someone else. His dog looks like Stitch, and his 6 year old son was named after a Latverian dictator…just don’t tell his wife.


Jason Gross (@SockOfFleagulls) is the creator of Rediscover the 80s and loves to subject his two sons to 80s pop culture. Currently promoting Agents of M.A.S.K. (co-writer), he enjoys freelance writing about 80s music & nostalgia.

Brian Morin (@bmorin54) is a fan of anything 80s. He hosted an 80s themed radio show while in college which justified his library of over 250 eighties CDs, and currently co-hosts The Walking Dads, a Walking Dead-themed podcast.


Newton Gimmick (@NewtonGimmick) is a purveyor of pop culture, toy enthusiast and award winning amateur scientist, and runs InfiniteHollywood.com. One of many web writers not afraid to profess his love of 80s cartoons, toys, pseudo sports and Jell-O. What makes Newton unique from the others? He does it all from the comfort of his custom Denver: The Last Dinosaur Snuggie.


The Podcast

Mr. Serious (@chapmanrunner) has been selling his whole life, nowadays he happens to get paid for doing it. His long term goal is to retire young and spend his days watching old episodes of Saturday Night Live and tweeting about “the good old days”. He produces and edits the UnderScoopFire podcast.


Battle Armor Joe (@SharePointJoe)  has spent 12 years in the technology field but his true desire is to be a LEGO Minifigure.


Tank (@P0LISHPHEN0M) (“the Os are zeroes”) lives in Rochester, NY & manages a movie theater. During his free time he wines & dines on pop culture. Being a child of the 80s, nothing gets him going more than a daily dose of movies from his childhood.
