Retroist Teen Witch Podcast
In this episode of the Retroist Podcast, I discuss the late-eighties teen fantasy comedy, Teen Witch. This movie has become a cult classic and had many fans, all of whom arrived at that fandom in different ways. My fandom was a slow burn but was acquired without a hint of irony.
I start off talking about how I arrived at that fandom before moving onto the film itself. Then I discuss the people in front of and beyond the camera, the shooting locations, the music, its reception, and much more.
If I cannot persuade you to check out the entire film, please point your browser over to YouTube and search for Top That. Even if you have seen it a dozen times, it will bring a smile to your face.

I edited out a lot about the cast. Sometimes it’s just too much, but I do sometimes feel bad because a lot of talented people here.
I discussed Bewitched for about a minute. Edited that out.
I discussed It’s Your Move for about 30 seconds. Edited that out.
I tried to edit in more movie music, but not comfortable with it. So kept it minimal.
Edited out my favorite lines from the film. That was two minutes.
I tried out a new section about locations. It was meh. I did keep in a little trivia about the Thriller house, but that is it.
I had another commercial break for Skittles, but it was a bit on the nose. Taste the rainbow.
I forgot to mention a Gibb on the Saved by the Bell theme.
I had laid out the lyrics to Top That, but it didn’t really go anywhere. I edited that out but pulled some out for the stinger. No sirens interrupting this episode, which was a nice change.
I played around with the effect I play during quotes. It is less “telephone-like” now and should be easier to hear. I am going to use this setting from now on.
I thought I was having some weird microphone issues, but it turned out to be a software issue. That’s a relief. I really like my microphone.
Thanks for listening to the show and I hope you have a great weekend.
