Tripp and Andrew Laino, graduates of Downingtown East High School, will examine 1980s cinema as part of the Philly Podcast Festival this weekend, according to a report in the Daily Local News.

The two host a local podcast called “Dissecting the 80s.” They will aim to answer the quintessential question of “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” on Saturday at 7 PM at Tattooed Mom in Philadelphia, during the free live show.

“‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit?’ celebrates its 30th birthday on Friday, and ‘Dissecting the 80s’ hits its milestone 100th episode and fourth anniversary in July, so it seemed like a perfect combination,” said the hosts.

This is the pair’s third performance at the Philly Podcast Festival in three years. They have also performed twice at the Baltimore Podcast Festival.

Since its inception, their show has been downloaded in 68 countries. Every other week, a new movie or television show is dissected, with the hosts finding plot holes and commenting on the bizarre cinema quirks of the time. The 100th episode will be released July 2.
