Rental Return S2 Bonus: Interview with Ira Belfer of Captain Video

Season 2 of Rental Return – Tales From the Video Store continues with a bonus episode! During the Season 2 Preview episode, several video rental themed newspaper articles from the ’80s were discussed by Adam, Chad, and Jason which included the small chain of California based stores called Captain Video. A quick google search by Adam found one still in existence and he planned a trip to visit the store and interview the owner of 37 years, Ira Belfer.

Listen to the interview and watch the video version which includes a walk through of the store. You can also visit Captain Video on Facebook.
