80s' TV


We are joined by Kevin Gallagher from Everything is Awesome podcast & That’s Entertainment network. That’s just the surface level of what Kevin does. He has his hands in multiple outlets including critic, producer and more. I’ve been featured on his show a couple of times and Kevin is notorious for bringing up the DC movies and our difference in opinion. It’s sort of our trademark conversational piece.



I’m probably the wrong person to talk to about this but they just don’t make TV like they use to. TV in the 80s had these specials called After School Specials. The purpose of these specials were to directly talk to the audience of the show to address bigger issues like smoking, drinking, child abuse or more. There was more to count. Make sure you let us know in the comments below, which one you remember the most?


For this episode’s “Roads to Hope” kind of grew naturally. As we’re talking about the diversity in the selection of 80s television, we stopped to talk about the Golden Girls just a little bit. The Golden Girls gave us something to hold on, the promise of friendship. The importance of community.
