Episode 064 – Year in Review: 1982

December 12, 2023
On June 11, 1982, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial was released and 7 year old Drew Barrymore became a star literally overnight. Joined by friend of the pod Joalena, we dive into the year that catapulted Drew to superstardom. From hosting Saturday Night Live to charming Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show, presenting Princess Diana with a stuffed E.T. toy and traveling the globe, this was definitely a whirlwind of a year for our girl!

this episode contains lots of loud baby squeals. We apologize for the distraction!
