October 1989 Pop Culture: Frogs, Whale(y) & River Phoenix's Dog

Pam is overseas and Kim Reed's internet has been destroyed, but guest co-host Megan McCafferty is here! And eager to dig in on October 1989's pop culture topics. Her beloved Keith Coogan gets a mention in a What Now blurb about Star Search! Her object of teenage obsession, River Phoenix, gets a whole page to proselytize to Christina about animal rights! And there's more: we also cover Gleaming The Cube, The Karate Kid Part III, Frank Whaley, acceptable potatoes, whether The Pogues and reggae are repetitive (spoiler: yes), and -- somehow -- Steven Spielberg's defunct theme restaurant, Dive!.

September 1989 Pop Culture: Batman, Love Shack & All My Children

The September 1989 issue gives us much to discuss in the world of pop culture. Is "well-gutted" a valid Sassy Glossary entry when "gutted" is just fine on its own? Should men pay for dates? How much can we discuss the TV adaptation of The Outsiders that won't be out for several months? How much baseline knowledge should a Gen Xer have about the Indigo Girls? How much worse is The Batman (2022) than Batman (1989)? How many of the All My Children stars Christina hung out with on set are still working on soaps today? What does it mean to call Paula Abdul "a people artist"? And so much more! We'll be GUTTED if you don't listen!Join The LTS Club And Get The Goodies📖 Full cover-to-cover magazine PDFs💬 Chat with us and your fellow listeners on Discord🐣 Get episodes earlier than the general public👀 Monthly watch-alongs of Sassy-era movies and TV specials🚫 Ad free episodes with chapter markers👚 Merch discounts and free stickers🤩 Join the Listen To Sassy Club today! Visual Aids🖼 View scans from the magazine in this episode's Visual Aids Episode Notes🗒 Full episode notes, further reading links and other goodies can be found on this episode's page on our site Call The Hotline☎️ Leave your questions, comments and Sassy stories on the hotline at 720-SASSY-GO Contact Us🐦 @ListenToSassy on Twitter📷 @ListenToSassy on Instagram🧑‍💻 Visit our website ListenToSassy.com
