    Welcome to a new season of Sam Pancake Presents the Monday Afternoon Movie! We’re approaching the made-for-TV wonders of the 1970s a bit differently this season, and instead of gawking at the horrors of the supernatural and macabre, we are focusing on a different kind of scary movie: cautionary tales about imperiled teenagers!
    To kick off the TEENAGE WASTELAND season, we’re looking at 1975’s SARAH T., PORTRAIT OF TEENAGE ALCOHOLIC. Who better to join Sam in the exploration of this film than a real-life Sarah T., returning guest Sarah Thyre!

To discuss this piece of TV history, Sam is joined by Melissa Peterman — actress, comedian and Fargo’s Hooker No. 2.
