18: “Your Mother’s A Tracer!” – Chasing Amy

The WHEN WE WERE YOUNG podcast isn’t even supposed to be here today! But in this episode, we took a fresh look at Kevin Smith’s influential 90’s romantic comedy CHASING AMY, and touched on CLERKS, DOGMA and the rest of the “View Askewniverse.”

Does this quirky and queer comedy starring Joey Lauren Adams and Ben Affleck hold up? Join in as we take a fresh look back with 2017 eyes on this 1997 film that was seen as a new step forward in representing queer characters in cinema, given our current wave of LGBTQ social progress and the evolution of non-heterosexual characters in mainstream movies.

When We Were Young is a podcast devoted to the most beloved pop culture of our formative years (roughly 1980-2000). Join us for a look back to the past with a critical eye on how these movies, songs, TV shows and more hold up now.
