Our special guest today is filmmaker Bobby Canipe Jr, whose forthcoming documentary, “Mom n’ Pop: The Indie Video Store Boom of the 80s/90s”, is a fascinating and nostalgic look at the local video stores that many of us grew up with! We had a great discussion about his career and take a deep dive into the history and our memories of Video Stores! If you have a young person in your life that has never experienced the fun of going to video stores, looking wide eyed at the cover art, and the joy of choosing a movie or two for movie night, then have them listen to this fun retrospect on one of the coolest periods of our lifetime!
