Episode 95: Stranger Things Season 4, Volume 1
In this episode, Welcome To The Party Pal celebrates Season 4, Volume 1 of Stranger Things, the science fiction horror drama television series created by the Duffer Brothers that is streaming on Netflix. The brothers serve as showrunners and are executive producers along with Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen. Set in the 1980s primarily in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, the series centers around numerous supernatural events occurring around the town, specifically around their connection to a hostile alternate reality called the "Upside Down," after a link between it and Earth is made by a government child experimentation facility. Season 4 of Stranger Things was released in two volumes. The first set of seven episodes, the focus of this episode, was released on May 27, 2022. In it, a new villian arises from the Upside Down, Hopper struggles to escape from a Soviet prison, and a powerless Eleven attempts to find her way in the world — all of which is expounded upon in this episode of Welcome To The Party Pal hosted by Michael Shields with the help of author, speaker, teacher, and radio host River Jordan!
