We’re back in good ol’ 1982 for part two of the apex of the teenage wasteland movies, Desperate Lives, starring Helen Hunt, Diana Scarwid, and Doug McKeon. Joining Sam again for the conclusion is actor, writer, and comedian Arden Myrin (Secret Chef, Marvelous Mrs. Maisel).

Two high school kids from anytown, USA get involved with the wrong crowd and fall heavily into drugs, causing progressively worse and worse things to happen to them and their friends. Will they be able to pull themselves out and get clean before it’s too late? Will Arden ever get over her fear of vans? Listen as Sam teaches us all about”shotgunning” a joint hit and learn who Arden got to do it with on the set of a Shameless.
