73: “You’re Safe and Sound Now, Back in Good Old 1955” – Back To The Future

Great Scott! We’re back! And we’re discussing one of the most popular movie trilogies of all time. BACK TO THE FUTURE (1985) was an enormous hit straight out of the gate, turning Robert Zemeckis into one of Hollywood’s most sought-after directors and the Delorean into a car people actually wanted to own. The time travel action-adventure is still one of the most beloved films from the 1980s, but now that we’re looking back at it from the future, does the trilogy’s premier installment stand the test of time? Join our debate, and stay tuned for Part 2 later this week!

2: “A Serious Cackling” – The Blair Witch Project

In October of 1994, three podcasters disappeared in the woods near Burkittsville, Maryland. Police were baffled by the podcasters’ vanishing… mostly because podcasting had not been invented yet. A year later the MiniDisc player they recorded to was discovered. 21 more years later, that recording is released here.

Just in time for Halloween (and yet another sequel), WHEN WE WERE YOUNG’s second episode tackles 1999’s unlikely horror hit THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT. Is the ultra-low-budget thriller still as groundbreaking as it was in the pre-smartphone era, or does it deserve to be banished to the woods? Kick your map in the creek, apologize to everyone’s moms, and follow us on this audible journey… because Becky totally knows where we’re going! Right, Becky? …Becky?
