Paul and Corey Cross the Streams: Season 5, Episode 16 [‘9 to 5’ (1980)]

Paul and Corey Cross the Streams is a bi-monthly podcast in which hosts Paul Pakler and Corey Pepper watch and review streaming content. It’s the Great American Podcast where two friends learn about life as they float down the river of streaming services.

In solidarity with the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strike (the latter of which Paul and Corey are both members), Paul and Corey have decided to change things up:

For the duration of the strike, they will: 1) cover only films about labor unions/strikes/solidarity/etc.; 2) not cover any new releases (that includes Corey’s Pass or Plays); and 3) not recommend any streaming services for where you can find these films.

Following Corey’s choice, Harlan County, USA (1976), Paul decided for a fun one. 9 to 5 (1980).

Starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Dolly Parton, and featuring the Oscar-nominated title song, the film was a colossal success. 

There is a lot to discuss – from the stars’ careers to Second-Wave Feminism to the War on Drugs.
