Episode 11: Vietnam in 1980s Television

This week join Jonathan and Steve as they discuss early 1980s television protagonists who each have a Vietnam background. We talk about when representations of Vietnam vets began; some differences between ’70s and ’80s depictions; and have a little fun with the TV tropes associated with representing the Vietnam experience.
