Episode 485: Biggest Turkeys of the ’80s

Jen with One N, B-Rad and Spearsy had to reach a compromise on this week’s Thanksgiving-themed podcast: We decided to honor both the biggest “turkeys” of the ’80s – movies, songs and more that were huge busts – but also agreed to hand holds and say what we were thankful for. (Spearsy was thankful that part of the show only lasted 5 minutes.)

This episode of Stuck in the ’80s is sponsored by Hims, a new wellness brand for men. Look, it’s just a fact of life. If you’re stuck in the ’80s, you’re probably also stuck in your 40s or 50s, and that means your glorious ’80s mullet or feathered hair look isn’t ever coming back. But help is here with Hims. Stuck in the ’80s listeners get a trial month of Hims for just $5 today right now while supplies last. Go to forhims.com/80s for your special deal.

Episode 484: Two More Great Albums Turning 30

Oh yes, 1988 seemed like the dark ages for some music fans in our beloved decade. The magic of the early ’80s was gone, and FM waves had been invaded by hair metal and teen pop queens. But there were some albums still worth discovering, including Tracy Chapman’s self-titled album and a really fun (if not also dark) disc by Siouxsie and the Banshees. This week we again honor the year 1988.
