Movie of the Year: 1982 – Mixtape

Movie of the Year: 1982


Listen to us construct the definitive 1982 mixtape!

Some years we do this mixtape and it’s really more accurately a playlist, or in its own time it would have been burned on to a CD. But not in 1982. In 1982 you would be setting those songs down on some magnetic tape to give your girlfriend or boyfriend or whoever. What we make on this episode is a mixtape from the time of mixtapes, from perhaps their origin itself.

We’re talking Kim Wilde, Dexy’s Midnight Runners, and Flock of Seagulls, all the acts that made 1982 what it was: the only time those names would be relevant. Are we going to call 867-5309? And will we do it from behind the wheel of our little red corvette? You’re hungry like a wolf to know and have the eye of the tiger for details, but come on Eileen, I ran out of clues to give. Hurts so good.

While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade on June 24th.

Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what’s best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.

Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn’t be determined by location, and it shouldn’t be the privilege of a small few.
