This year marks the 30th anniversary of Seinfeld (well, depending what date you choose) and to celebrate, we're taking a look at how this 90s series came to define television sitcoms and archetypes for years to come. In this episode we get into all the reasons Seinfeld matters. We walk you through the production history of the show, it's financial success, and of course its tenure in syndication. And we do it all with the help of the most-guested guest, Alex! 

But, beyond that we talk about how this series changed how we see comedy and opened the door for a whole host of television shows. From notable moments like the Summer of George to phrases and ideas that took hold in culture beyond the series like double dipping, shrinkage, and more we dive into it all. And of course we get into how Elaine was the blueprint for the women of Sex in the City, Dollface, and beyond.
