In 1998 at age 13, I created a time capsule. Earlier this year, I began sharing what was inside on Instagram and it became a smash hit. Today, I'm launching a podcast to discuss '90s nostalgia, tweenage mortification and more with a slew of celeb guests.
The Capsule '98 Podcast: Going IN with Twitter's hottest '90s tribute account, @NightOpening
On this episode, we're joined by Julio from Night Opening, the hit Twitter account that's amassed legions of fans with its four-image recaps of '90s movie premieres. On Julio's feed, you'll find Paris Hilton walking the red carpet with Carrie Fischer, Jason Alexander wearing countless fanny packs and Freddie Prinze Jr. with frosted purple tips.
Join us as we go for a wild ride through the Getty Images archive and re-visit iconic premieres like Showgirls, 54 and Austin Powers.
The Capsule '98 Podcast: Let's Talk About Romantic Comedy
On this episode, we're talking all about one of the defining film genres of the '90s: Romantic Comedy. From Notting Hill to You've Got Mail, they've been etched into our minds, so much so that Elizabeth Sankey directed an entire documentary about them! She joins me from London as we lol through a questionable history of impossibly charming cinematic love.
The Capsule '98 Podcast: Joe Zee and Vanessa Craft
On this episode, we're joined by legendary fashion stylist and personality Joe Zee, and Elle Canada's editor-in-chief, Vanessa Craft. Joe and Vanessa recently starred as guest judges in the fashion competition show, Stitched, and joined me in the studio to journey back to their incredibly iconic lives in the '90s (Joe was working with everyone from Mariah to Madonna to J.Lo, while Vanessa was living the dream as a back up dancer amongst other things!)
The Capsule '98 Podcast: Jawbreaker director Darren Stein and costume designer Vikki Barrett
On this episode, we're joined by director Darren Stein and costume designer Vikki Barrett, the masterminds behind Jawbreaker! We look back at the legacy of this eternally stylish cult classic film, plus Darren and Vikki spill the tea on what it was like working with Rose McGowan, wrapping Rebecca Gayheart in latex, and why this game-changing movie could never happen today.
The Capsule '98 Podcast Season 2 premiere: Sophia Amoruso and Ralph!
Welcome to Season 2 of this obsessively nostalgic podcast! We're back with an all new episode featuring the creator of Girlboss herself, Sophia Amoruso and singer/songwriter, Ralph! Sophia is the founder of Nasty Gal, a two-time author, podcast host and an all-around boss bitch who grew up thinking fart sounds were hilarious. Ralph (Raffa Weyman) is your new favourite pop princess.
Join us as we chat about the highs and lows of high school, Joshua Jackson's level of hotness and more!
The Capsule '98 Podcast: Episode 12, Lara Marie Schoenhals and Graydon Sheppard
For the Season 1 finale of Capsule '98, I'm joined by two of the funniest people on the Internet, Lara Marie Schoenhals and Graydon Sheppard! Lara is the genius behind the Sexy Unique Podcast, Cosmo Sex Tips and my fave viral video, Please Welcome to the Stage. Graydon is best known for his iconic viral hit, Shit Girls Say. Together, they spoof YouTubers on their new channel, Influencd.
Join us as we talk prom and the apparent two Cs of high school: Crushes and Cocaine!
Capsule '98 will be back with Season 2 this fall! Don't forget to subscribe and follow me on Instagram at @Capsule98 so you're looped!

Re-Examining Our Pop Culture Past
After discovering her old time capsule made in 1998, Randi Bergman examines how pop culture has changed since her adolescence with the help of incredible guests. There’s a wit and charm on display throughout each episode, making for a lovely walk down memory lane, where we’re forced to ask ourselves “was the 90’s as bad as we thought they were?”
One way ticket down memory lane
I thoroughly enjoy going back to my youth and have forgotten so much that is brought up on the show. Must-listen for anyone who grew up using ICQ while listening to Dance Mix.
What a throwback!
This show has been awesome to listen to and reminisce about the 90s. Can’t wait for more episodes!
