We're Generation X'ers who spent our childhood immersed in the music, movies, games, and pop culture of the late '70s & '80s. All of that stuff has shaped who we are today as adults. And those nostalgic things are still very much a part of how we live our lives & see the world in the 21st century. Through this show we look at yesterday and today through the eyes of Generation X'ers.
