80s

I give this an 80 out of 80

KBMC2013 ,

Never thought the 80’s could be this boring

I like all the topics they cover and it’s nice to have on in the background when I’m doing other things or going to sleep. Unfortunately none of the hosts have an ounce of charisma. They call themselves “stuck in the 80’s,” but they seem like they hate every song and movie they talk about. Definitely better than other podcasts where the hosts are screaming or laughing like hyenas, but definitely needs to liven up a little and stop trying to be too cool to like anything.

Still working my way through and loving every minute!

I found this podcast about two summers ago. I started to try episodes here and there that interested me, but their stories made me want to start from the beginning. I started with episode one, and made it to the 200’s when I decided to start all over again because I had missed some story plots the first listen. I’m now around episode 430 and am still entertained and nostalgic for my beloved 80’s!
