Episode 22: T.G Monahan – Dreamin’ in ’89

We are finally back with a new podcast episode of Return to the ’80s! On this show, Paul and Del welcome author Todd “T.G.” Monahan. T.G. has released a novel that takes place in a time that is near and dear to our hearts – the 80s! The story takes place in the summer of 1989. It is a coming-of-age story as Seb deals with bullies, tries to win the attention of a girl, and goes on a mission to make enough money to buy the Dreamin’ and become a world-renowned radio-controlled pilot, earning his father’s respect. It has all the elements of a great ’80s story, and actually takes place in the ’80s.
So, check out this episode as Todd discusses his book with us, and we talk a little ’80s and ’90s.

Daily Trivia: 1/23/13

Question: What was the name of the robot on Buck Rogers in the 25th Century?


Last Question: What field guide by author Lisa Birnbach claimed, “It is the inalienable right of every man, woman and child to wear khaki.”?

Answer: The Official Preppy Handbook

Great job Kickin’ It Old School (@OldSchool80s)!!

Ah, The Official Preppy Handbook – the bible of all things preppy. This tongue-in-cheek book informed us that “looking, acting, and ultimately being Prep is not restricted to an elite minority lucky enough to attend prestigious private schools, just because an ancestor or two happened to arrive here on the Mayflower”.

So what comes to your mind when you hear the word “Prep” or “Preppy”? The first thing I think of is the collar turned up.
