Retroist Podcast – Episode 190 – Desperately Seeking Susan

On today’s show, I start off by talking about how mysterious and dangerous I found New York City as a kid and how my sister would risk life and limb to adventure there. Then I start talking about the subject of this episode, Desperately Seeking Susan. I talk about the people in front of and behind the camera, the stars, the plot, the locations, the novelization and much more. I am joined this week by metagirl who shares Madonna’s top 5 songs from the eighties.

Music on the show was provided by Peachy (the Madonna of Wales), if you have musical needs, why not contact and “like” him on his Facebook Page.
