The Summer of ’82 at 40 is a weekly retrospective journey through American pop culture during May, June, July and August of 1982. Brandon Peters and Forbes’ Scott Mendelson take a weekend by weekend look at the films released during the summer as well as the news stories, television and music that rounded out the public’s lives as they lined the pockets of the box office to see these movies.
