The podcast we didn’t know we needed is called Pod Meets World. Danielle Fishel, Will Friedle, and Rider Strong are getting back together to discuss all 158 episodes of Boy Meets World, which aired for 7 seasons from 1993 to 2000.
The trio discussed why it was the ideal moment to take a closer look at the show in our EXCLUSIVE interview, even though it has been off the air for more than 20 years.

“I believe the separation is about appropriate. I believe that if you had asked me to participate in an interview regarding Boy Meets World ten years ago, I would have flatly refused since I was at a point in my life where I wanted to go on to other things, Rider told HollywoodLife. “I wanted to switch careers.
I believe that right now, I feel a lot more secure, comfortable, and at ease with myself. I can look back on it and truly see it for what it was, both the wonderful and the bad, since it seems far enough away.
So, I don’t know, it just feels like the proper moment.
We started hosting conventions around five years ago, and I was afraid. It ended up being one of the best, most exhilarating experiences. It’s a feedback loop.
I’ve changed my mind about the show and am now appreciative of it because the fans enjoy it so much.
“We were extremely fortunate during the conventions to be able to have fans come up to us and give us their personal tales about what the show meant in their life,” continued Danielle Fishel.
Some of them are really profound, weighty, and intimate. We turned to face one other and wondered, “What are ours?” It was one of those conversations.
What are our experiences with it? What do we recall about it? What did it signify for our life as well?
We’ve never really sat down and spoken about what it means to us, so hearing how much it meant to other people made me feel like we should.
Will noted that the 30th anniversary of the show’s debut will occur in 2023. “I believe that our meeting was nicely timed.
In addition, Danielle and I are only 30 seconds apart, which is fantastic logistically,” he said.
Boy Meets World followed the lives of Cory, Shawn, Topanga, Eric, and many more as they matured from teenagers to adults.
It’s understandable that the cast doesn’t remember every episode of the show, given that 158 episodes were filmed.
Because I never watched the show, Rider said, “I’m particularly looking forward to revisiting the ones that I’ve completely forgotten.”
“The pilot’s excellence has already astounded me. I actually thought, “Oh, I can understand why this show was a hit.” He continued, “I’m excited to look at it as a type of critic.”
Looking back on the episodes he doesn’t really remember, Will had “exactly” the same reaction as Rider.
The midst of certain seasons is so hazy. When my memory is stimulated, I will recall details from the previous week, but I positively cannot recall large sections of the show,” Will stated.
“Going and sort of unpacking, which is a word we use a lot, those shows and seeing some of the guests we forgot we were on.
We had so many incredible guest stars, really. We’ll be saying, “Oh, I can’t believe she was on.” I failed to notice that he was on. I’m most excited about anything like that, so.
Boy Meets World examined timely problems including abuse, loss, classism, and more over the course of its seven seasons.
Rider told HollywoodLife, “That’s what’s going to be interesting is to watch where those things fall now because, for me, Boy Meets World was always tonally quite unusual.
“It had that drama. The drama was quite strong, followed by extremely absurd and humorous material.
Does anyone know if the cult episode is still airing? Or does that seem absurd? I am aware that we frequently air Shawn’s extra-special episodes.
The father dying episode and the cult episode both make me emotional when I think about them. If that one still feels nice on the nose, I wouldn’t be shocked.
The Boy Meets World following has expanded since the show first aired because of reruns and the availability of episodes on Disney+.
Despite Boy Meets World’s continued success, the cast was allowed to have relatively typical childhoods while the show was being filmed.
“It wasn’t a big deal to us. The TV Guide didn’t even come out to interview us until the eighth year, according to Will.

“We were essentially the show that never ended. We weren’t getting a lot of press. We would watch other series, like when Melissa Joan Hart took over Sabrina and by the middle of the first season, she was on the cover of TV Guide.
In about our fourth season, we’re looking at each other and asking, “Man, what’s going on?
“We simply keep slipping beneath the radar,” he continued, “so it was really the best of both worlds.
We enjoyed working together, spending time together, and having each other by our sides, but we were still able to go places where you weren’t followed wherever you went. You may simply generally take it easy. It was wonderful.
The entire time the concert was on, there was no Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook. “I’m actually extremely glad it happened before social media for a variety of reasons, even just for my own life.
I’m glad we lived in a time before the internet took off and really altered the world. Our show had a genuine sense of security, and Danielle herself felt that way as well.
