Akiva Wienerkur is a former high school English teacher and NBC Sports researcher who now works for a tech start-up. He loves the Jets, the Mets, his wife, his son and 2 daughters- not necessarily in that order.
I’ve never been this early for s podcast in my life!
My first time commenting on the current episode – finally caught up with the podcast.
How far away are we from Kramer’s idea of speed-dial in the future?
Valerie’s stepmother says it took her 13 years to climb to the top of Valerie’s speed-dial. This means that she started her climb in 1984. Was speed-dial commonly available with phones back then? I remember our family getting a push-button phone in the late 70s (maybe early 80s), but a phone with speed-dial feels like a late 80s (or early 90s) thing.
I loved every time Rob played a Christopher Cross song. There were a few times when Akiva was speaking that there was some background noise (like someone was pushing a desk across the floor) so each time I thought it was just noise. But when I recognized the song I started laughing.
According to what I’ve heard from pop culture over the years, Cross was hugely successful in the pre-MTV era, but once you needed a music video for your singles his career took a big dive when “people saw what he looked like”. The music industry is very harsh.
I love how Akiva asked if Arthur was “a rat or a pig”.
Thank goodness I was listening to this at home and not in public because when Akiva admitted that he thought Christopher Cross and Kris Kross were the same thing I lost it. I literally had tears running down my face.
Loved the “Ride Like The Wind” outro. I cannot hear this song and not think of the SCTV clip where Rick Moranis does his Michael MacDonald impression for this song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0HzWMqLeiE
You guys messed up with the discussion about Jerry and the Millennium new year. Jerry is revealing to Newman that his party is on the Millennium new year (Dec 31, 2000), a year late, and thus quite lame.
They definately did it before the year 2000. Great bit.
