Podcast: We have a theory about Wisconsin ...



Times file photoBelieve it or not, in the long history of the Stuck in the '80s podcast, the most outspoken and dedicated fans are in Australia ... and Wisconsin.

For years, we have privately researched a possible connection between the two. Does Wisconsin have an unnatural number of Outback Steakhouse restaurants? Do Aussies wear wedges of cheddar on their heads and secretly root for the Green Bay Packers while tolerating American footie matches? Is it simply that each is such a remote outpost on the planet that residents are forced to scour the Internet for whatever entertainment they can find? 

It doesn't really matter. But as a result, we're actually thinking of making Wisconsin -- probably Milwaukee -- the anointed spot of our next Stuck in the '80s get-together. "Stuck in the '80s 2011: Sausages, Suds and Sean Daly." Something along those lines.

This is just one of the issues we ponder during the latest podcast, another edition of '80s News Now. Click here to download, or click here to get all our shows for free via iTunes. And savor each cheesy morsel.
