#196: Going Off-Script


Some things, of course, from Josie and the Pussycats have aged poorly. The idea of “record stores” and CDs (that could, in turn sell out like they were PS5s or something) is downright quaint–especially given the format of this show. I’m pretty confident that the cultural moment of Moviefone Guy has well and truly passed, despite the continued used of both movies and phones. Do people still know who Carson Daly is? I confess I never really did. Mostly I know him from that totally jerkin’ movie, Josie and the Pussycats.
