I'm asking people what they were obsessed with as kids. A lot of kids fixate on something, a movie, or game, or book, or whatever. I'm asking friends to revisit the things they couldn’t put down, and trying to figure out what they mean to them now.

    Watching Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights with Zachary

    Okay
    This is a song that uh
    There's a lot of Christmas songs out there and uh
    not too many Hanukkah songs
    So uh
    I wrote a song for all those nice little Jewish kids
    who don't get to hear any Hanukkah songs
    Here we go

    Put on your yarmulke
    Here comes Hanukkah
    So much funukah
    To celebrate Hanukkah
    Hanukkah is the festival of lights
    Instead of one day of presents, we have eight crazy nights

    When you feel like the only kid in town without a Christmas tree
    Here's a list of people who are Jewish just like you and me
    David Lee Roth lights the menorah
    So do James Caan, Kirk Douglas, and the late Dinah Shore-ah

    Guess who eats together at the Carnegie Deli
    Bowser from Sha Na Na and Arthur Fonzerelli
    Paul Newman's half Jewish, Goldie Hawn's half too
    Put them together, what a fine lookin' Jew

    You don't need "Deck The Halls" or "Jingle Bell Rock"
    'Cause you can spin a dreidel with Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock- both Jewish

    Put on your yarmulke
    It's time for Hanukkah
    The owner of the Seattle Supersonicahs
    Celebrates Hanukkah

    O.J. Simpson, not a Jew
    But guess who is? Hall of famer Rod Carew- he converted
    We got Ann Landers and her sister Dear Abby
    Harrison Ford's a quarter Jewish- not too shabby

    Some people think that Ebenezer Scrooge is
    Well he's not, but guess who is
    All three Stooges
    So many Jews are in showbiz
    Tom Cruise isn't, but I heard his agent is

    Tell your friend Veronica
    It's time to celebrate Hanukkah
    I hope I get a harmonicah
    Oh this lovely, lovely Hanukkah
    So drink your gin and tonicah
    And smoke your marijuanikah
    If you really, really wannakah
    Have a happy, happy, happy, happy Hanukkah
    Happy Hanukkah

    The Manic Pixie Dream Girl is a type of female character often depicted as a whimsical, quirky, sometimes eccentric, fantasy woman who saves the male protagonist from himself. She usually aides in his transformation without ever showing any real agency of her own.

I love hearing about things other people love 💕

Hearing people talk (both gleefully and, when applicable, with a loving but critical eye) about their obsessions, no matter the age, brings me so much happiness, and my mood brightens every time I see a new episode has dropped. I also love how many forgotten childhood memories I have unlocked via the discussions here - new listeners, I guarantee there will be at least one episode covering a topic you’d forgotten you consumed in your youth, and if you are like me, you WILL yell about it.

Thank you to Percia, and every wonderful guest, for sharing the things that shaped you. This has become a cast I recommend frequently!

Not just nostalgia!

11 Again is a fascinating look into why we latch onto certain media as kids. Percia is a superb interviewer and she does a great job of guiding her guests toward interesting insights into their personal connections with the subject. Getting to revisit these nostalgic shows, books, etc. is just the cherry on top.

Wonderful look back on Childhood

I came across this show as a plug on the other show on this network. Percia is a great host and her wonderful guests help her explore why we liked things as a child and what they mean now. They avoid navel gazing nostalgia and fawning over things but are never mean or dismissive. Have already recommended it to friends and will continue to do so. Keep it up!
