    Blogs

    It's been FOREVER since we had former MTV veejay and all-around '80s queen Martha Quinn on the Stuck in the '80s podcast! Eight years at least! So we're super jazzed to say Martha rejoins us this week to talk about everything '80s.

It also lets you pay for food so you don't have to carry a wallet and opens lockers so you don't have to  carry a key. (Universal via AP)
