Vijay:
Is he still there?

Q: You must be joking! 007 on an island populated exclusively by women? We won’t see him till dawn!


James Bond: [looking at the tattoo on Magda’s back] Forgive my curiosity, but, what is that?

Magda: That’s my little octopussy.

Episode 15: Thirtysomething at thirty: an oral history


Welcome to a new episode of the Return to the ’80s podcast! Paul’s partner-in-crime, Robert, is missing in action this episode as the soccer team he coaches is in a state tournament kicking ass and taking names. But, this is still a great episode. We welcome Scott Ryan to the show. He wrote thirtysomething at thirty: an oral history, which will be out on June 7. You can purchase the book at www.scottryanproductions.com. Even if you never watched the show, this is a great episode. [Note: I have never watched the show myself] We talk a little about the show, and Scott’s experience in writing the book. We also cover an arrangement of other ’80s topics. Play This, Not That features Billy Joel, and morphs into a great conversation about Billy Joel. We also have a new Remember That Song and ’80s Trivia. So, please check out this episode and let us know what you think. In addition to listening right here on the site, you can also listen on iTunes, or anywhere you get your podcasts from

Last Song: “When Love Comes to Town” by U2 & B. B. King from the album Rattle and Hum (1988)

Great job Craig (@terraceten)!!!

I was a sailor, I was lost at sea
I was under the waves before love rescued me
I was a fighter, I could turn on a thread
Now I stand accused of the things I’ve said
