Dee and Jason, Just when I thought an idea couldn’t be any dumber, you go and do something like this … and totally redeem yourself! Loved the back stories on the movies, and the timing with Jennifer Grey’s memoir (Jason - it’s French, pronounced mim-wah) was uncanny. Learned a ton for sure. As a hair band fan of the 80’s, I gulp hard before admitting that I both owned that cassette tape and loved it. I can still sing every word on the album and was ready to spike the football declaring that one the winner. But, I stuck around for the finale. Why? Well, it should be obvious, I carried a watermelon! I was listening while running, and by the fifth song, I physically shrugged mid-stride and audibly exclaimed, “you’ve gotta be kidding me!” This album just kept providing hit songs, and they are songs that have stood the test of time, which is hard to do with disco. I’m not sure if the end of episode four caused me to have a Night Fever because of running in 90 degree temperatures or the quality of both the album and the deep nuggets you guys were digging for 🤔. I have to think it was the latter. I still watch Dirty Dancing when it’s on, but now I’m going to have to check out the full Saturday Night Fever album. Great work guys!!
The metal hairbands of the 80’s had the market cornered but as we all know, nobody puts baby in a corner. Not my favorite music but my wife and daughters loved it. Great job on making this podcast a wonderful, learning experience. I had the time of my life listening to you guys.

I have seen both movies several times and they are not among my favorites. However, the podcast was very entertaining and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Both soundtracks were full of catchy tunes and the masses ate it all up. Good insight from Dee and Jason.
Due to my job, I travel a lot, and as a result, I listen to a lot of podcasts. A few become favorites, but only one has become an absolute must-listen every week: Surely You Can’t Be Serious. It is an absolute blast every week to listen to Jason and Dee explore all the best in ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s pop culture. Every episode is full of fun facts and obscure trivia that enrich the overall experience. The hosts themselves are obviously friends, and the show has such an easy, conversational tone that it’s easy to imagine yourself sitting at the local watering hole with them, debating the best Toto song. If podcasts were mountain ranges, SYCBS would be a Mt. Everest, with a few others reaching the heights of a Kilimanjaro and the rest left standing glumly on the Serengeti plains, hoping they themselves will one day reach those heights. Here’s to many more years of this fantastic podcast!
You guys have great taste in movies. There’s no doubt about that. Just The Godfather 1 vs 2 vs Goodfellas series has me hooked. This is my new daily commute podcast. Keep up the quality content guys!
Great podcast. I love pop culture and these guys hit the best of the best of music and movies. Keep up the good work. This podcast is more explosive than Kilimanjaro. I highly recommend. You will not be disappointed and I have promoting this podcast to other friends.
In the graveyard of oversaturated defunct podcast , this podcast is a breath of fresh air. Just started listening to them but already enjoy it so much. Keep up the killer content!
Great Podcast! They are always on top of their game. I have learned so much by listening to them. Hit subscribe and deep dive this Podcast immediately - you will not regret it.
These guys know the material and they know how to make a fun debate happen on each episode! Even when I think I know everything there is to know about a specific movie or album, they prove me wrong in the most entertaining way possible. Definitely a great podcast for the lover of all things 80's and 90's!
These guys have great chemistry and are always prepared with tons of knowledge and trivia about the topics at hand. Very crisp and professional.
My Goodness these guys are the most researched and entertaining retro pod out there! Joyous banter, facts you wouldn’t believe and it all just works so well together l. Hooked!
I’m so happy I found this podcast. My first listen was just last night and I’m hooked. I listen to many different Comedy podcasts but this podcast is now at the top of my list.
Only listened to a few shows but I can say I’m already your podcast big fan. Please added new episode
I tapped one star on accident but followed up with 5. I hope that goes noticed. Great podcast. I love pop culture and these guys hits the best of the best of music and movies. Keep up the good work.
If you grew up in the 80’s as I did, and are a fan of the movies and music of that era, then you owe it to yourself to check out this podcast! Fun and informative; it’s a great listen. Each segment compares similar movies and music of one the greatest eras for either. I’ve always been a fan actor’s and musicians autobiographies on audio, but this is definitely more enjoyable. I commute 30 minutes to and from work each day and this podcast makes me look forward to it!
This is such a fun show that reminds me of the friendly debates my friends and I used to have in high school! The hosts are very upbeat, informed, and their enthusiasm for the music/movies is infectious. It's also one of the few podcasts I can listen to with kids in the car and not worry about profanity. Keep up the great work and I can't wait for the next episode!
What a wild and incredible ride! Found this show recently and I’ve enjoyed every single second. The host have great chemistry! Happy to subscribe!
One of the most flat-out enjoyable podcasts I have stumbled across. Two convivial hosts and lots of fun trivia on the pop culture icons that made the ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s make this one of my go-to podcasts.
A lot of podcasts try. This podcast is effortless. You can tell the difference. Well researched.
This is such a fantastic podcast that talks pop culture 70s/80s/90s. I look forward to each episode dropping. Keep up the great work!
High production value. Great discussion about the only decades that matter. This is when entertainment was good and they reflect that. Subscribed
The Superman vs the man of steel argument was interesting! I do admit I love the original but now you make me want to watch man of steel again. But Christopher Reeve and Margot Kidder is everything to me. But now you guys definitely inspired me to rewatch. These guys bring great arguments from both sides. Definitely can’t wait to dive deeper
These guys are great! I love the comparisson aspect and they do a great job of giving you some great info about what they are talking about. They are really well researched! Definitely give them a listen if you are a fan on the 80s and 90s!
Each episode we get treated to some of the age-old great debates: Thriller vs Bad, Airplane! vs Spaceballs, Van Halen vs Van Hagar... the possibilities are endless and so is the joy of listening to two hosts who clearly love what they’re talking about. Here’s to many more matchups to come!
If you’re a child of the ‘80s, and you’re NOT listening to this pod, I have one thing to say to you...”Surely you cant be serious!!!” This is nostalgia at its finest. I don’t always drink beer, but when I do, I drink it while listening to this podcast. I fancy myself a trivia buff, and I can legit say that I learn something new from each and every episode! Keep ‘me coming!
My boy Jason and his pal Dee kill it with this great retro podcast focusing on music, movies and pop culture from the 80s. A great listen on the work commute!
I love podcasts. I listen to everything from motivational to sports. This one I would describe as pop culture. The guys provide good information while not taking themselves too serious (hence the title!). They travel down all kinds of wormholes just like you do when having discussions with your friends. The episodes aren’t too long so you can usually listen to a full show without having to stop then pick it up again. I can’t wait to hear what they have in store!
Started off with their Thriller episode and really enjoyed hearing the hosts provide fun facts and entertaining chats about all things music. I learned that Thriller was originally to be called Starlight which is pretty cool. Look forward to checking out more. Subscribe and listen now!
Two guys, one mic, and a fountain of 80s-90s knowledge which they use to debate the issues that most Americans wonder about. Which movie, album, etc from the 80s and 90s was better. I don’t necessarily agree with either of them all of the time but they give you a lot to think about. If you are a child of the 80s or 90s or just a fan of the 2 greatest decades of the last millennium, then this podcast is for you. And I am serious... but don’t call me Shirley... well... maybe just this once...
These guys start breaking down 80s music and movies and I’m instantly taken back to a wonderful time in my life. Full of fun debate and laughs! Highly recommended !!!
This show is a blast! The guys come up with topics that force the listener to take a side and want to jump in to the battle royale. The first two episodes were so much fun. They really took me back. Can’t wait for the next one!
