Episode 35 - Summer Of 86

Where were you in 1986? If you’re like most of our listeners, you weren’t even born yet. Goddamn Millennials. But for the rest of us who were there for it, most would all agree that 1986 was most definitely a year. This week, we’re taking a look back at another watershed moment in pop culture - 1986: When Mav first turned and burned, when Eddie Murphy was the #1 everything, and real nerds listened to They Might Be Giants. (Years before the cool kids would hijack the term “nerd” and make it their own, taking our last shred of dignity. Jerks.) So sit back and listen to three guys talk about neat stuff.
