Retro Fanfic Retrospective is a podcast by three friends who review retro fanfiction in a variety of fandoms. In this case, retro is described as dating to no later than the mid 00s. The podcast regularly features guests; some are from other podcasts, some are family or friends.

The podcast's website describes it as:

"Friends read old fanfiction that they think might be good. Sometimes they are right. Sometimes they are not."[1]

Not every fic is well-received, but as stated above, the hosts look for fanfiction that looks like it might be worth-reading, sometimes by looking through rec lists, award winners, or sorting through comment count on The hosts sometimes use Fanlore itself as a resource.
