Large Marge Sent Us

Here on the Large Marge Sent Us podcast, Sweety and Sweetie are our names and nostalgia is our game! Once a week (or more if you're lucky!) we watch movies from the 80s and 90s that shaped our childhoods and then have a sisterly chat about them. We usually sing songs and there's about a 100% chance we'll crack up with bouts of laughter. We hope you will too! So come join us and step back into a time when life was good and the movies were even better Logo created lovingly by Frankie Donlon. Follow us on Twitter @TheSweetieClub and on Facebook!

Do it Rockapella! Carmen Sandiego was one of those educational gameshows for kids that ran on PBS from 1991 to 1995 in response to a study that found out that Americans in the early 90s were a big bunch of dummies and couldn't locate the Pacific Ocean! Duh.  Three kids would compete against one another as gumshoes, new to the ACME detective agency and tracking down a crook (working for the notorious crime boss Carmen Sandiego) who stole a famous world artifact or building, etc by answering questions about world geography correctly.  These kids were so smart! There were three rounds - sort of basic question answer round, a memory like game and then the grand finale - a giant map of a continent and you have to run around the map putting light sensors on various countries in 45 seconds. Hard as hell! So turns out these kids were really smart, they gave dorky but cool prizes (woohoo an atlas! woohoo a recording pen!), and the woman who played the Chief is a badass and best part of the show! So check out some episodes on YouTube and joining for a rollicking discussion on the finer parts of this zany show + some really bad Sweetie acapella.
