August 1989 Pop Culture: Charlie, Spike & Rockmelons

How many calories in every hamburger McDonald’s has ever sold? Was Booker the right career move for Richard Grieco? All this and more is covered in What Now. Watch it has, among others, a correct rating for Do The Right Thing and a wildly unfair rating for The Tall Guy. Listen Up finds us divided on The Ramones’ “Pet Sematary,” but united on 10,000 Maniacs. Dave agrees that Billy Zane is One To Watch, then protests the Ones To Watch. And we only have one pop culture feature this month, but when it’s as memorable as Christina’s sitdown with Charlie Sheen, that’s all you need.

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!. Make yourself a sandwich and your dog some meat-free kibble and join us!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

September 1989 Slumber Party: Annie, Bonhomme & Drysol

The September 1989 issue truly gets to the heart of what 90% of Sassy readers (give or take) were obsessing about: Rate Your Guy Appeal. How strong should you come on to a hypothetical Danish exchange student? Take the quiz and compare your results to ours. Then it's on to your latest voicemails, covering subjects ranging from how to interact with Northern Irish children; whether Bonhomme is a force for evil; how dangerous Drysol may actually be, and much much more!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! Episode Notes🗒 Full episode notes, further reading links and other goodies can be found on this episode's page on our site📈 The September 1989 quiz: Rate Your Guy Appeal🤔 "The Enduring Allure Of Choose Your Own Adventure Books" at NewYorker.com🛰 "Remembering Prisoners Of Gravity, The Greatest Science Fiction TV Show Of All Time" at BoingBoing.net🎞 This Had Oscar Buzz on Apple Podcasts 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
