In 1994, Jen was sent to a “therapeutic boarding school” in The Middle of Nowhere, Montana. (She had some issues.) That meant a lot of things, but one is that Jen missed two full years of popular culture when she was 16-18 years old. Join Jen and her husband Micah and revisit your old faves as they travel back to the mid-90s to watch, listen to, and talk about what Jen missed.
Listen to our first episode to understand what this podcast is about and why we’re time traveling back to the mid-90s.
As described in episode 69 NICE.
Episode 69. Nice.
CW: We talk about rape in this one, and the brutal, gratuitous rape scene from the movie we watched.
Aside from that, get ready for some bad acting, even worse dancing, and lots of boobs!
As described in episode 68 The Secret World of Alex Mack.
This is Sadie! I have taken over the podcast. This episode is about The Secret World of Alex Mack. My mom and I talked about this show. I loved it! Alex has really cool powers and I really like her best friend Raymond. It was really fun to talk to my mom about The Secret World of Alex Mack. I hope you enjoy it!
As described in episode 67 Getting Even With Dad.
First of all, ladies canNOT be cops. Secondly, in 1994 Ted Danson and Macaulay Culkin made a movie together. Whoopi Goldberg was not in it and contrary to Jen’s opinion, it was not directed by Howard Hughes. Jen really lets loose in this one, with mixed results. Micah shares another “great” comic. Ponytails are discussed at length, Deutch is now a verb, and we talk about a Montana dad memory. This episode has everything.
Lastly, Jen would like to sincerely apologize to all people with languages for last names.
Extra! Extra! Read all about it!
This is a special edition of See You In The Funny Papers. Featuring Nuts & Bolts by Judd Winick from The Real World: San Francisco. It’s not exactly chronological with the rest of these but it it’s a special edition! Deal with it!
As described in episode 66 The Real World San Francisco.
CW: This episode contains discussion of homophobia and AIDS.
It’s the last week of PRIDE month, and we are embracing our MTV generation roots by joining the seven housemates of The Real World San Francisco. This 1994 season was what made The Real World the hit it became, and we chose it in honor of housemate Pedro Zamora, a gay man who was living with AIDS at the time and died shortly after filming.
As described in episode 65 The Watermelon Woman.
We’re back with another episode for our month of Pride-themed content that is queer as fuck. This week we talk about the 1996 film “The Watermelon Woman” written, directed by, and starring Cheryl Dunye.
We also dig into Jen’s thoughts about queerness and how it relates to her experience in Montana.
And of course, the show opens with a fan-favorite segment about a fan-favorite comic. It’s a classic!
