It’s 90 To Nothing, the most excellent and only all-90’s movies podcast on Place to be Nation POP!

Cult Classics exist throughout the 90's, but maybe none create as deep of a divide as 1995's Empire Records. You really do either love or hate this movie and for Russell and Sam, there's no exception. One of them still loves this movie and one thinks it earned every negative review it ever got or will get. But can these two, now Frenemies, agree on anything in this movie? Listen and find out!
