Generation X. If you grew up in the 1970s, 1980s, and early 1990s, you know just how cool it was to be a kid back then. We had the greatest music, movies, games, technology, and pop culture of any generation, and though we've grown older, we have refused to outgrow our love of everything GenX. GenXGrownUp looks at yesterday and today through the eyes of Generation X'ers who have refused to grow up!

    Horror Movie Debates

    Horror Movie Debates

    We take an in-depth look at what makes a horror film great. Whether it’s those ambiguous endings, the blood and gore, or the jump scare that catches you off guard, not everybody agrees on what belongs in these nail-biters. We debate just what aspects are essential parts of a great horror film, and a panel of our listeners will decide who’s right!

An excellent, fun podcast full of great "vibes"

The best thing about this podcast (and I listen to many) is that the hosts are genuinely nice, friendly people with good attitudes and pleasant demeanors. Their mix of dorky 40-something jokes and relaxed banter is well balanced against their knowledge and research. They don't fall pray to the lame snarkiness or tired attempts to be funny that plague so many podcasts--they just seem like kind, funny guys hanging out and rambling on a wide variety of topics. Fun and recommended.

Get jacked up on Jolt Cola, blow into your game cartridge and get hooked

There’s plenty of podcasts where people blab ad infinitum , but as a former journalist and a GenX’er, I appreciate the organization of topics, friendly discourse and the quality of production this show offers.
After tapping into my private cache of jolt cola and searching for podcasts on new/old tech, retro gaming and media, I stumbled on to this podcast and I’m sure you’ll love it!
The show’s YouTube channel levels up on another dimension of media and game entertainment- which is also not just retro but modern too.
Relive your loved childhood games and media but also learn about new stuff from lens of fellow GenX’ers.
This show is like Zork, I just keep playing it!

We5freaks ,

Wow! Very easy to listen to.

I listened to the Mister Rogers episode. I could tell within the first few minutes that the two hosts were very good and very easy to listen to. I will definitely go back to listen to the back category.
