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.

Get in a time machine - and re-live the 70's and 80's

I'm not much of a podcast listener, but I was really turned on by this show and am now an avid listener. These guys bring up so much history about what it was like growing up as a Gen-X'er and all the life events, games, positive stuff, and crap-aweful stuff we encountered in our growing-up years.
Now I need to figure out this patrion thing and figure out how to pass a few bucks to them for having such an awesome podcast.
Well worth the listen!

This is the content you're looking for GenX

I've finally made my peace with the fact I can't have a DeLorean time machine to take me back to the 80s. The good news is my online search to do so prompted the algorythmns to lead me to this podcast. GREAT SCOTT is it good!!!

The chemistry between these guys is amazing and the quality of the content is exactly what I was looking for.

Proud to be a new Patreon supporter, subscriber, listener, and GenxGrownUp!

Forever a 4th Listener

I may not fall in the actual category of a Gen-Xer, but i relate to them more than my generation. These guys are hilarious, and have some much to bring to the table. Each of them have their own perspectives and will stand their ground when it come to disagreements. It is great to listen to and I cannot wiat to hear what they come up with next! Keep up the great work gentlemen!!

Forever a 4th listener!
