Episode 64: An American Family (1973)

This week join Steve, Andrew, and Jonathan as they discuss the PBS 1973 series An American Family. Was it an experimental documentary? Was it the first iteration of what we now understand as “reality TV”? These questions and many others are discussed as we think through how affected one becomes when “living” in front of a camera.

Episode 63: Lynda Carter Special

This week join Jonathan, Steve, and Andrew as they sit down together to discuss a listener-suggested topic – Lynda Carter’s fifth and final television variety special: Body & Soul (1984). The guys discuss the special within the context of the time period, why Lynda Carter didn’t become a “mega star” even though by the “rules of Hollywood” she possessed the correct formula, and a little behind-the-scenes talk about slotting in advertisements in the regional vs. national markets.
