Pop culture writer, and host of The In Sync Podcast, Rachel Brodsky joins Ryan and Nicole to talk about the soundtrack to the 1987 film, Dirty Dancing. It’s one of the best selling soundtracks of all time and it features the Oscar and Grammy award winning hit (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life, which also topped the Billboard Hot 100 for 4 weeks.

We Discuss:

Rachel growing up with the movie and the soundtrack and why the movie used to make her think about her mom’s family

How the soundtrack is a blend of 60s hits and very 80s sounding songs written for the film

Patrick Swayze - actor, dancer, and… singer?

Why does Time of My Life remind Ryan of his high school prom.

And More!
