'80s All Over
About This Show
Scott Weinberg and Drew McWeeny have set out to review every major film of the '80s, month by month, on a new bi-weekly podcast that aims to erase the nostalgia that so often clouds any real conversation about the decade's movies.

It's hard to believe we're already wrapping up December 1982, especially because it's jam-packed with so many films that it seemed like it took 14487300347 hours to record.
Dustin Hoffman in a dress! Meryl Streep out of one! The best Paul Newman performance ever! A Richard Pryor movie that will make you weep! And not one but two Jessica Lange films!
There's almost no way to do justice to how dense this month is, so jump in, get busy, and we'll see you back here in a week for our best of episode so we can wrap up the third year of this ten year project.

For someone who’s film DNA was formulated and solidified in the 80s, ‘80s All Over is the perfect shot of film nostalgia. This show’s opening them will teleport you back to the days of flipping through the monthly HBO guide, and Drew and Scott make the perfect co-hosting team for this trip through cinema’s best decade. From geeking out over classics like Raiders and American Werewolf to highlighting lesser known but still terrific films such as Prince of the City, there’s always something to make this podcast worthy of the listener’s time. You’ll also get a dose of crazy anecdotes such as the Michael Jackson Elephant Man story(amazing). ‘80s All over has joined This American Life and Radiolab as my most anticipated podcasts, and I’m sure if you give it a try you’ll be hooked in no time at all.
