Still Buffering: How to Teen in The 80s

An illustration of Teylor Smirl, Rileigh Smirl, and Sydnee Mcelroy. Sydnee is wearing a doctor’s coat and holding a giant Tardigrade. Encircling them is the name of the show, Still Buffering, with ovals between the letters. Beneath them its says “I am a teenager... and I was too.”

So Sydnee found this book, and it’s a very bad book, but it makes for very good talking points on our show, so that’s what we’re sharing with you today. Apparently teen girls in the 80s had a lot of rules, from archetype roles they had to fit into to how they could eat corn, there’s a lot there to talk about and we’re doing it all.
