Who Shot J.R.?: The Plot Heard Round the World

I am throwing my hat into the podcast jungle, hoping to emerge with the brass ring! (And my hat.) “The Incredible Inman’s Pop Culture Potluck” looks at people and events in TV and movie history. Its voice is informative but irreverent, and it is also straight from my larynx. In our first episode, I look at the debt that shows like “Game of Thrones” owe to the show that invented the season-ending cliffhanger, “Dallas.” And we look at the mac daddy of cliffhangers – when “Who Shot J.R.?” swept the country during the summer of 1980. Give it a listen! It’s fifteen minutes out of your life, for cryin’ out loud!
