"America's Funniest Home Videos" podcast looks at its history

Once again I regret that there is content only available in podcast form. AFV was downright mesmerising to my younger self, thirty years ago.

I will go to my grave never understanding why it’s not AFHV.

I’m looking forward to this. AFV is TV’s greatest comfort food after a tough day. Plus (I assume this is covered in the podcast) it was an absolute sea change when it premiered. It’s easy to forget that before the Internet, the average American’s best chance at any kind of fame was either to send a tape to AFV or write a letter to the local newspaper.
