New podcast: Dirty Dancing – charming or cheesy?

Published February 26

As soon as I saw the Super Bowl commercial with Eli Manning, I knew my phone was going to light up with texts saying these dreaded words: "We need to do a podcast on Dirty Dancing!" Boom! Thirty seconds later, the iPhone starting buzzing.

Sorry, baby, but I've been trying to keep this movie "in the corner" for as long as possible. And yet, here it is: Our latest Stuck in the '80s episode is about Dirty Dancing, and we try to decide once and for all: Is it charming or just cheesy?

But there's something really super unusual in this week's podcast. For starters, it doesn't start with the requisite "Hey, hey, it's your host Steve Spears!" For the first time in probably about 10 years, I handed over the hosting duties to our co-host "Jen With One N." Jen and "Gayle from DC" took up the all the chores – the usual promotion announcements, the research, the  works. "Brad in LA" and I are still there – but merely as guests.

Let's face it: Nobody wants to hear about Dirty Dancing from two 50-year-old guys.

The result? A pretty fun show, I'd say. And we finish up with our new "Shall We Play A Game" trivia challenge. This week the topic is "doctors" – from movies, TV and more.
