Childhood friend, Patron, and superfan Michelle Phillips joins the show to boldly go where Adam and Chad have been too afraid to go on their own… a deep discussion of Backstreet Boys, NSYNC, and 90’s boy bands.  Michelle brings the enthusiasm of a teenage girl and intelligence of a full grown woman. She has seen boy bands live five times… as an adult!  Did Adam really listen to Backstreet Boys’ entire 90’s catalog to prepare for th...

Adam and Chad dissect a movie neither of them watched back in the day, Joel Schumacher’s St. Elmo’s Fire.  Staring six members of the Brat Pack, it featured even more Brat Packers than The Breakfast Club!  Does the coming-of-age story hold up as well in 2021 as it did upon its release in 1985? Those of you who lived through it let us know on social media!

Chad interviews Adam about the “adult cartoon” Night Court. Did Adam really become a lawyer because of this zany sitcom? Can Chad find value in it even though he didn’t watch it back in the day?

Adam and Chad have a stream-of-consciousness discussion about the sodas, juice boxes, and powdered drinks of the 80’s and 90’s and how they have been brainwashed by a lifetime of advertising and marketing.

Weird Al is the unparalleled paragon on parody. With a musical career spanning five decades, no one can write and perform music send ups as successfully as he can.  So surely his one and only movie is great, right?! It has Conan the Librarian, Spatula City, and Wheel of Fish after all. Well, at least it gave us a great performance by Michael Richards.

Everyone knows by now the boys love 90’s basketball. What about a movie about corruption in college basketball featuring Shaq and Nick Nolte directed by the guy who did The Exorcist?? This is the movie that made Chad almost get in a bar fight, so you have to listen even if you’ve never seen it!

Chad is busy being a film director so the summer hiatus is a little longer than originally planned.? But the boys got together for a bonus episode to keep you entertained and off the streets.

For some reason, True Romance was a movie the guys never really got into back in the day.? After watching it for the first time in almost three decades, Chad has some s*** to say!? Written by Quentin Tarantino and directed by Tony Scott, starri...

This is one of the episodes you’ve been waiting for... Adam and Chad cover their favorite movie from their childhood, 1984’s Ghostbusters. Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ivan Reitman created a brilliant cinematic universe, and Bill Murray was in his absolute comedic prime. 

Is it still a good movie after you separate it from your childhood memories, or was it all just nostalgia? You already know the answer. The guys get into exactly...

Nirvana.  Sound Garden.  Pearl Jam.  Alice in Chains.  These were the thrashing and mopey bands that spoke directly to the disenchanted youth of the early 90’s.  (Almost as much as the flannel and combat boots! ) 

Actor, podcaster, and college professor Joel Egger drops some knowledge about the origins and evolution of the distinctive Seattle sound, and then takes such a deep dive into Pearl Jam that you’ll want to bring your scuba ...

There can be no disputing that Eddie Murphy is insanely talented.  From his characters and impressions to his beautiful singing voice and filthy vocabulary, Eddie Murphy was THE man in the 1980’s. But how does his standup comedy play in 2021?  Is it more offensive than it is funny when viewed through the modern lens?  Does it deserve a pass, or does he owe a mea culpa to certain groups?  Most importantly, is it still as funny now a...

With teen mega stars like Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon, Cruel Intentions was a massive hit in 1999.  In fact, it was one of the best films of the 90’s! (Or was it one of the worst movies of all time?)  Guess what Adam and Chad think, then hit play to find out!

The boys class things up by having the inventor of Pictionary on the show to discuss the legendary game released in 1985.  Rob Angel gives a “sketch” of his new book, Game Changer, about how a simple idea loaded with tons of dedication, hard work and integrity produced the world’s best-selling board game… and gives Adam some well-deserved crap!

Let Adam and Chad take you to your happy place. A world of fluffy telepathic pets who will do anything to get back home to their family. The best part of this genuinely heartwarming film is that no animals were harmed. And somehow the boys work David Lynch into their discussion about this family friendly Disney movie.

Back in the 80s you couldn’t just have plain old basketball shoes… your shoes had to have an air bubble or pump action!  Oh, to be one of the lucky kids whose parent bought them Air Jordans or Pumps.  The boys reminisce about the shoes that allowed an entire generation to dunk… or at least think they could!
