As the 1980s drew to a close, John Carpenter released They Live, an indictment of Reagan-era politics, a sharp critique of the economic disparity in America, and also a movie about Rowdy Roddy Piper wearing a pair of magic sunglasses.
On this week’s episode, Tom is joined by guest host Bridgett Greenberg and comedian Matt McCarthy as they discuss the surprisingly still-relevant themes of They Live, John Carpenter’s ongoing quest to discredit any and all forms of authority, and the legendary performance of Roddy Piper as John Nada, which is simultaneously soulfully understated and lip-wigglingly insane.
