Well, it’s Throwback Thursday, time to gaze back into the ether and enjoy some nostalgic reminisces about times past. I have two podcasts that are just perfect for this lazy, nostalgic day.
First up, the Cult Film Club Podcast takes a look at a movie called Ping Pong Summer.
While this movie was made just last year, it takes place in the summer of 1985 and is very much informed by those lazy 80s summers. It stars Lea Thompson, John Hannah, Susan Sarandon, a vintage arcade center called the Fun Hub and lots of ping pong. It’s one I think you should definitely check out.
Also dropping today, a Nerd Lunch Extra Helping all about the 1990 anime-inspired sequel to 1983’s Masters of the Universe Filmation cartoon, The New Adventures of He-Man.
It features He-Man getting sucked into the distant future of Eternia and battling against…well, Skeletor. Again. Yeah, check it out, it’s sort of a fascinating subject. We talk about the cartoon, the characters, who’s returning, who’s absent. We even delve into the toys. Lots of fun discussion.
Or Listen to it online right here.
