We start this week’s episode by looking back into pop culture history in the Retro Roundtable. This week in 1960 the first laser was patented, so we talk about lasers and their influence on sci-fi and pop culture. They protect our valuables, are the weapon of choice of any space adventure, are used to perform surgery, and were all the graphic of choice in the 80’s. Let us know on Twitter or Facebook if you can think of other ways lasers have influenced pop culture.
Then, since we have no guest, we take a second look into pop culture history! It was this week in 1980 that the Dallas television cliffhanger, “Who Shot J.R.?” first aired. So we remember some our favorite cliffhangers in television and movies. We recall some of the best suspenseful season enders from The Simpsons, Twin Peaks, The Walking Dead, and more! Get in here!
