Retro Report’s mission is to arm the public with a more complete picture of today’s most important stories. We correct the record, expose myths and provide historical context to the fast-paced news of our world today using investigative journalism and narrative storytelling.
Retro Report is founded on the conviction that without an engaging and forward-looking review of high-profile events and the news coverage surrounding them, we lose a critical opportunity to understand the lessons of history. The long term mission is to provide a permanent living library where viewers can gain new insight into the events that continue to impact our lives today.
Retro Report has produced more than 150 short documentaries and video series and partnered with The New York Times, The New Yorker, PBS, NBC, Politico, the Guardian, Univision, Quartz and others.
