This may have already been discusses in other threads or later podcast discussions, but I think Jim said that he thinks the oldest of the actors portraying the kids is like 15 in real life.
The guy who plays Lucas is enrolled in college. He's 17 and will be 18 this Fall. I looked it up because the dude has been sporting a goatee during the publicity rounds.
The girl who plays Max is 17. Finn Wolfhard is 16 going on 17 this December. The actor who plays Dustin is 16 turning 17 this September.
Millie BB, who I thought would have been the oldest behind the guy who plays Lucas, is actually the youngest at 15.

Despite our patriotism, we are probably #1 in self-loathing. I don't know, maybe the UK is #1. Either way, it's a stark contrast between us and Russia in how we are able to publicly criticize our past and current events, and even how we sometimes skew towards painting ourselves with a more negative brush just to prove that we aren't biased patriots.
