Movie of the Year: 1984 – A New Season Begins

Movie of the Year: 1984

A New Season Begins

A new season begins, which movie of 1984 will be our Movie of the Year?

1984 is here, and folks, this might be the biggest year of blockbusters we’ve ever covered. None of us were really very aware in the actual year 1984—we are young, and fit—but the movies of this year would pepper our childhoods like salt, adding flavor and enjoyment to everything we consumed.

But were these movies just fast food for the mind? No, along with the blockbusters of 1984 were smaller, more thoughtful films that perhaps could have been even better with a couple more ‘splosions. Rock me, Amadeus, indeed.

We love movies and we love years, so we came together to make this podcast celebrating both. 1984 may have been a big year for movies; however, we’re betting it’s going to be an even bigger year for our podcast.

Coming up this season we have some of the most fun movies we’ve covered and some of the most amazing guests we’ve ever hosted. Stay tuned, everyone, because things are just getting started.

Abortion is healthcare

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.

You can help by donating to local abortion funds. To find out where to donate for each state, visit
