Show Notes

Will and Ray discuss current news related to 1980s media, including an American Girl doll you'll love and whether the "Coming to America" sequel may really require protection. Then, the duo speak with Austin Trunick, author of the recently-published book "The Cannon Film Guide Volume I: 1980–1984."  They discuss the impact of the B-movie studio Cannon Films on our youths and on Hollywood films. And they challenge Austin to identify real Cannon films among phony movie pitches.

What is The 80its?

An objective defense of 1980s pop culture. From a couple of idiots.
