"The 80s: The Decade That Made Us" on the National Geographic Channel

    Tonight the National Geographic Channel will premiere their 6-part miniseries The 80s: The Decade that Made Us.

The series is based, in part, on the book Back to Our Future: How the 1980s Explain the World We Live in Now--Our Culture, Our Politics, Our Everything

by David Sirota.

WAMC's Sarah LaDuke spoke with Sirota in advance of tonight's premiere.

Sarah has been a public radio producer for over a decade. She grew up in Saranac Lake, New York where she worked part-time at Pendragon Theatre all through high school and college. She graduated from UAlbany in 2006 with a BA in English and started at WAMC a few weeks later as a part-time board-op in the control room. Through a series of offered and seized opportunities she is now the Senior Contributing Producer of The Roundtable and Producer of The Book Show.
