Say Anything (1989) — with Pat!

September 14, 2021

PAT IS BACK! Join Lori and Pat as they fall in love all over again with one of the most romantic films of our generation, 1989’s Say Anything, starring John Cusack and Ione Skye.

From men who are best friends with women, coming of age moments in cars, and Lloyd Dobler as a warrior for optimism, to wanting to get hurt, friends with potential, and pens as parting gifts, they raise their boombox in high praise of Cameron Crowe's directorial debut.

Anti-Drug PSAs of the 1980s

Anti-Drug PSAs of the 1980s

April 20, 2021

DISCLAIMER: As a matter of public health and safety, Cate and Lori strongly believe in the importance of trusted, accessible alcohol and drug education and resources for everyone. The Untitled GenX Podcast does not condone the use of illegal substances and would like to remind you party people to enjoy the legal stuffs responsibly.

On this very special episode, Cate and Lori tackle the weird, wishful-thinking anti-drug PSAs of the 1980s. From "your brain on drugs" to “I learned it by watching you,” the gals have a lot to say about the oversimplified "Just Say No" movement.

The always-responsible ladies talk about drugs in suburbia, uncovering a parent's stash, "moral failures," experimentation, and one very serious Pee-wee Herman.
