WKRP in Cincinnati was one of the great American sitcoms, underappreciated in its own time but kept alive in syndication and deeply loved by the kids and teenagers who grew up with it in the 1970s and 80s. In each episode of the podcast, we’ll discuss two episodes of WKRP in Cincinnati. You can watch along with us, but you don’t need to watch to enjoy the podcast. Each episode is a jumping-off point for a wide-ranging discussion of TV and radio history and the politics and culture of the Carter to Reagan years.

Customer Reviews

Listen up, fellow babies!

HMOTD is more than "just" a WKRP watch-along podcast. It's a commentary on a slice of American culture that is often overlooked, skipped over in the transition from the Nixon to Reagan years. What did the late 70s have to offer anyway? Wasn't it just a long malaise full of disco and terrible fashion choices? Not (entirely) so! Grasso and MacDougall, as historians and astute cultural observers, use WKRP as the lens through which to view the era and reflect on both how far we, societally, have come and how much the song indeed remains the same.

Also, WKRP was a darn fine show. If you never watched before you owe it to yourself to check it out and listen to HMOTD as you go.

My life was a hollow lie

and then I listened to Hold My Order, Terrible Dresser. Now I’m two inches taller, forty pounds lighter, I have a mansion and a yacht, and everyone comments on my increased confidence — which results in increased sales!

Mike and Rob are very clever men, and WKRP was a very funny show. Maybe you think that 1978-1983 is too narrow a range for a history podcast. Maybe you think that one sitcom from thirty years ago is too narrow a topic for a media criticism podcast. Well, to you the naysayer I respond: end of review!

Never seen WKRP? NO PROBLEM!

As a “Reagan baby" I’ve never seen an episode of WKRP... but HMOTD has me completely hooked! Not just a podcast about a tv show, it’s a podcast about American culture, history, literature and even the occult. What did a show like WKRP have to say about late 1970s pop culture? Where in history did those ideas and attitudes come from? How does that relate to the current American zeitgeist? Can turkeys fly? Let Mike and Rob take you on an often humorous, ever insightful and always entertaining journey into the world of WKRP!
