In this special live edition of CBC's flagship pop culture podcast, host Elamin Abelmahmoud joins forces with Sarah Marshall, host of the cult-favourite You're Wrong About, to explore the rise of pop culture nostalgia. From OJ to Diana, Tonya Harding to Y2K, they'll examine the hot—and often wildly misunderstood—topics that You're Wrong About puts in perspective, delighting its millions of listeners all around the world. Kick off your weekend with the medium's most culture-savvy pods, as Sarah and Elamin examine the "truthiness" of media narratives, the weird and surprising ways we absorb historical facts, and the way these blasts from the past blow up in the internet age.

Featuring special guest Sarah Hagi, a Toronto based writer of essays, humour and journalism whose work has appeared in The New Yorker, GQ Magazine, Time, The Globe and Mail, and more.
