The Toys That Made Us – TPToA Podcast 56

It’s almost as if Netflix magically reached into the minds of both Dion and Quinny, and plucked out a fully-formed series about a subject they both adore: toys. But this delectable four-episode “eight part documentary series” (according to the theme song) comes from series creator Brian Volk Weiss, and features Star Wars, Barbie, He-Man and G.I. Joe… so far!

In this episode of #TPToA, keep an ear out for our special interview with Larry Hama; one of the people credited with re-inventing G.I. Joe in the 1980s and creating “A Real American Hero“. We recorded the interview at at AMC Expo; thanks to the organisers for access to their guest.

Sometimes could go deeper into the history of certain toys.
We hope the last 4 episodes are coming soon!
