The Old Young Ones - Introduction

Who are The Young Ones, and why are Jon Clarke and Howie Weingarten talking about them 40 years later? Jon and Howie discuss the origins of the world's first punk sitcom, which took a stage show approach in attacking the state of television and a scattershot structure to bring in more of the British alt comedy scene. Plus, how Jon and Howie found the show 10 years after it aired and why the early 80s' British scene connected so strongly with kids in the heart of grunge.
