Description

From 1988-1994, Sassy was the coolest magazine going for Gen-X teens. Celebrate that golden time by joining Tara Ariano, Pamela Ribon and David T. Cole for a deep dive into every one of its 80 glorious issues and remember what it was like hanging out with Jane, Christina, Catherine, Karen, and the whole crew, learning What Now, What Next, and so much more!

The pop culture coverage in the August 1988 issue is a bit slighter than we're used to, allowing us to get into nearly every bit of it. What Now tells us to get hype for The Fly II, Haunted Summer, and The Prince Of Pennsylvania, also mentioning in passing a comedy called Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, shrug. It also gets into John Stamos's new haircut, a Europe member's birthday, the unreleased Jon Cryer/Penelope Spheeris movie Dudes, the Amnesty International tour, and the dearth of women in heavy metal. Outside pop culture, we learn about "the crack" in the Sassy Glossary, and hunt down photos of the River Phoenix poster that the previous owners of our magazine copies obviously ripped out before selling them to us. To mix it up, the magazine gets a bevy of young stars it's recently interviewed, or about to -- including Alex Winter (twice), Paul Hipp, Alan Boyce, Johnny Depp, Annabeth Gish, and more -- to serve as guest critics in Watch It and Listen Up. And finally, Christina does yeoman's work in her write-around profile of an unavailable Lou Diamond Phillips. We hope YOU are available to listen!

When we say the Teen Life topics of the August 1988 issue run the gamut, that is precisely what we mean. We're going to start with the story of the youngest person ever sentenced to Death Row; then review the results of a survey conducted on 300 boys in malls, on topics ranging from when they want to get married to which outfit they'd most like to see you wear on a date. Crushing on a teacher? Christina has advice on that, some of which has not aged so well. And Barbara Bondrack's short story takes us backstage at a rock show...sort of. On The Road takes us to Boston; Body Talk covers exercise bands and constipation; Help has some advice about confusing sex dreams and bed-wetting (unrelated). Two extremely important departments make their dรฉbut: Stuff You Wrote and It Happened To Me! And the first IHTM is about...getting an abortion! After that heavy topic, we need to wind down with What He Said about the upcoming presidential election. Tone down your eyeliner -- that's how dudes like it, apparently -- and join us!

While the July 1988 cover goes hard for American-flag style (...and, okay, so does Sassy Club), the rest of the fashion in this issue is not overly patriotic. We're going to Arizona -- or somewhere very dry and hot -- for a swimwear spread. We're in an old-timey cottage for some undergarment looks. And then: stripes. So many stripes. We're also learning about hot-weather hair help, products from the beauty closet the Sassy staff swears by, how to look like a skateboarder (and possibly get called a poser in the process), and so much more. Stick some American-flag toothpicks in your hair -- or don't -- and join us!

Our discussion of the pop culture topics in the July 1988 issue of Sassy turns into a wild ride, as Dave takes tough stances on overstuffed comic books, Pam fact-checks an item on Keanu Reeves's name, and a factoid about fireworks ends up in a revelation about pediatric dentistry in Saskatchewan in the 1980s. Watch It covers Permanent Record and Running On Empty, among others; then Listen Up assigns Jenny Morris the wrong nationality but also tells us about a solo project from a guy in The Smiths. Chris Young tries (and fails) to break the One To Watch curse. Then it's on to the features: Christina reports from the set of The All New Dating Game and delivers a roundup of Australian bands, before Karen profiles a very VERY young Chynna Phillips.

What was going on in Teen Life in the July 1988 issue? A LOT. First, Catherine profiles a pair of queer couples she and Jane met at a legendary LGBT dance at Columbia. Then, we learn how to throw three distinct kinds of outdoor summer parties...and we have notes. Christina schools us on the five types of guys we should NOT date; Pam's not sure if that means, like, ever? And the editors' suggestions for ways to get fit without really noticing you're exercising are confusing: there's kind of a world of difference between how much you exert yourself skateboarding as opposed to floating in a lake. Lauren Yaffe's short story "Under The Light" takes us to camp before On The Road takes us to Vienna, WV. Body Talk informs us about fitness walking, potato chips, cervical caps, and shinsplints. We hone in on the Help letters about drug-using parents, sex-having step-siblings, masturbation, and stinky feet. Finally, we discuss What He Said about losing his virginity.

We're talking about the fashion and beauty of the June 1988 issue! Why is "My Backyard" in black-and-white, and did it make us less likely to covet the clothes? Which panelists hate all the hippies (and the hippie looks) of "Hip Hip Hippie"? Did any models cut their feet modeling barefoot in "Big Brights," and what the hell does "popsicle speed" mean? Did you attempt to tie-dye using What Next's instructions? Did "Some Things Never Change" make you nostalgic for your grandma's style, or Tim Conway's comedy? Isn't that a co-host of The Real on the About Face page? SHOULD you cut up your prom dress? How wild are "The Wild Ones" of Coty Wild Musk? Do we still think Mary Clarke is cool and envy reader Barbara Francis's day at the magazine? Some of these questions will be answered in our latest episode!

The time will soon come (heh) when Sassy can no longer talk about such things, so get your fill (heh heh) of Karen's piece on getting turned on NOW. The issue also tells you everything you need to know about breasts -- or, almost, as Pam informs her moderately horrified co-hosts. Catherine's report on two 11-year-old child geniuses is dark in the moment, and gets darker after she leaves, as you can see in further reporting linked in the show notes. Pam and Tara are enthralled by Elizabeth Mosier's "Wheels," and former Hawaii residents Tara and Dave have some fact-checking notes when On The Road heads to Honolulu. Body Talk and Help get into their usual embarrassing areas (sponges! yeast infections!) before we close out with What He Said about smart girls, siiiiiiigh. JUMP IN to our latest episode!

It's about to be summer, which means it's time for us all to look at some swimsuits, photographed in a tropical locale (St. John in the Virgin Islands, to be precise). Bright colors? Black? Some all-white dresses? All represented. Catherine also lets you in on the secrets of how models always look so perfect in magazines (it's all kinds of sorcery). Then you can go ahead and plunder your household pantry to make some natural masks and tinctures for your face and hair. We're also talking haircuts, hair dye, a whole mess of ads, Sassy Club, Christina's turn in the Diary spotlight, and much more. Put on your whitest dress, try not to spill a Coke on it, and join us!

May 1988 was a big one for pop culture: the airing of the St. Elsewhere series finale meant the dawning of the Tommy Westphall Universe! After discussing that, plus some other big moments in contemporaneous TV finales, we take a stroll through What Now. Molly Ringwald and Andrew McCarthy, stretching as actors! Patrick Swayze, opening a restaurant in New York! Karen, breaking a Tiffany album in half! And Pam delves into the dark history of Anna Jarvis, creator of Mother's Day! Finally, the issue folds One To Watch into its one and only pop culture feature, having Christina interview FOUR Ones To Watch. Sure, we all know who Alex Winter is, but did Paul Hipp, Billy McNamara, and Alan Boyce amount to anything? Find out with our latest episode!

Sassy is not messing around with the Teen Life topics this month. You're getting the straight dope on PMS. You're getting a BRUTALLY detailed story about a girl who dropped out of high school to become a stripper -- either encouraged or forced to do so by her mother. Sassy editors poll 200 mothers and daughters on what they know about each other, and what they don't. Catherine gets into the weeds with her advice on how to kiss. Even the short story twists, turns, and...Tums? You're going to learn a lot, so strap in for our latest podcast, if you dare!

Weeeeeeeeellโ€ฆit's the pop culture topics of the April 1988 issue! What Now covers the latest in Madonna's acting career, Corey Haim's love life, and a new movie from Beastie Boy Adam Horovitz, as well as the first entry in the Sassy glossary, news about condoms, and facts about prom, year-round school, and Frisbees. Watch It features reviews of Hairspray (the original and best), Dominick And Eugene, Stand And Deliver, and She's Having A Baby, while Listen Up highlights artists with hair (Twisted Sister) and without (James Taylor). We check in on where One To Watch Matt Adler is now. Then we are divided on Karen Catchpole's infamous profile of Tiffany, and Christina's turn as an extra on 21 Jump Street. Put on your vintage party dress and get into it!

We're back to TEEN LIFE topics, now in the April 1988 issue! Christina Kelly gets a first-person account from a man whose friend died of AIDS as a teen. Karen Catchpole demystifies what it's actually like to date a rock star, killing some Beastie Boys crushes in the process. Karen then dares to tell the truth about boys' bodies -- not just the parts in their boxer shorts, though that is admittedly what we're mostly interested in. And Catherine Gysin prepares readers for how their lives might change after their parents' divorce. Christina returns with the Short Short Story "What Sudie Didn't Tell Me." On The Road takes a trip to Austin (a place all your co-hosts have lived and loved!). Body Talk moves from Fashion to Teen Life, and with it our comments on its reporting on pap smears, golf, and cross training. Help has some truly wild questions we must pray are fake before closing things out with What He Said: "What do you think of girls who make the first move?"

We took Sassy's very first quiz -- How Competitive Are You? -- and so can you! It's online and linked right here in the show notes. We each pick one question that particularly resonated with us and discuss it, and then report on our scores. Next, we play some of your calls. A few are about the quiz; a few are about how Sassy first came into listeners' lives; and a few are on subjects we never ever could have predicted, and we love them. Then, we read an email from an O.G. Sassy staffer. Learn more about us, yourself, AND your fellow listeners with this latest episode!

Once Tara and Pam have described the fashions they were sporting or coveting in March of 1988, we critique the cover, and then get into the fashion stories of Sassy's premiere issue, set on a boardwalk, at an old railyard, and in a palette of creams and beiges. What Next also forecasts coming fashion trends with pinpoint accuracy -- thanks, Michael Kors and Betsey Johnson! The beauty features teach you how to use bandanas and makeup; then About Face tells you about bang trims and hot oil treatments, and Body Talk warns you about gonorrhea, weed, and NutraSweet. After Elise gets a makeover (and WILDLY negged in the process), we take a quick trip through some of the issue's most memorable ads, including Benetton, Levi's, Cherry Lane trying to make bloomers happen, and which Sassy Club products we'd be bugging our mom to buy us. Then: the Magazineyness! Jane's first Diary (her editor's letter) has a culturally insensitive lede but otherwise makes us want to keep reading. The letters to the editor in Say What are probably just as real as the ones in Help! And should Sara Walker, the subject of Inside Out (the magazine's inside back cover column for magazine production ephemera) who actually named the magazine itself, maybe have been its first cover model? Start thinking about how you can source these outfits on the cheap as you listen along!
