Retroist Breakfast Club Podcast

Welcome to the Retroist Breakfast Club Podcast. On this episode of the show I talk about the 1985 John Hughes classic, “The Breakfast Club”. I start off talking about how surprisingly pleasant my detention experiences could be in High School, then I move on to talk about the show. I talk about the people in front of and behind the camera, the plot, the filming locations, my inability to say “Des Plaines” correctly, the music, its reception, and much much more.
