Making the world weirder... One podcast at a timE
pump up the volume
Pump Up the Volume is a view of the 90s encased in amber, when the kids were all angry and had no idea what to do about it. It comes from a long line of movies about kids who don’t get what their place in life is, but… you know, In the 90s.
With a brilliant soundtrack, a prescience of what social media would become, Christian Slater as Christian Slater, and of course, Samantha Mathis’ boobs, Pump Up the Volume is a view of disaffected youth in America. Again. But… you know, In the 90s!
We give our take on this semi-forgotten film, plus everything we’ve been watching and listening to this week in our Peabody Award winning segment, “The Fresh Shit.” Talk hard.
