064 RS Podcast The Cosby Show

On The Cosby Show from the mid-1980s through the early-1990s, Bill Cosby’s fiction TV family, the Huxtables, redefined what a family looked like on television and no doubt contributed to a redefinition of the family in the culture at large.

On this episode of the Reel Spirituality Podcast, guest and self-proclaimed Cosby Show expert Avril Speaks and Reel Spirituality co-director Elijah Davidson discuss the show, it’s cultural impact, and the impact it had on both of their lives. Peel back the lid on a cup of JELLO pudding, and settle in for this trip down memory lane, and discover a few new things about this legendary sitcom.
