A look into the production and development of Mr. Mom, and how it almost but not quite embraced 1980s feminism. This isn’t a review podcast, but rather tracing how the film got made and some aspects of the creation. Mr. Mom was released to theatres in select cities on July 22, 1983.

Mr. Mom is available from Shout Factory and probably a bunch of other places.

Special guest star: Sarah Innis as Lauren Shuler Donner

At Ease was writer/director John Hughes’ first and last television series as creator. Though Hughes would get his start on the short-lived Delta House, At Ease was his creation… or at least parts of it were.

This episode was recorded after watching all but one episode of At Ease. YouTube hosts 13 of the 14 episodes. Unfortunately, the fourth episode “Prairie Moon Over Texas,” is currently unavailable. Find the rest of the episodes here.
